What is a Manufacturer’s Representative?
As defined by the Association of Sales & Marketing
“An agent representing a manufacturer in a specific
geographical area, usually on a contractual basis, usually
handles non-competing but related lines of goods.”
Why not call the Ingredient Manufacturer’s directly?
Just as companies outsource areas such as Accounting, HR,
Legal, and IT, outsourced Sales enables the companies we work
with to do what they do best; manufacture quality ingredients,
while leaving the Sales and Marketing to us.
Doesn’t this add another layer to costs?
Quite the opposite, we act as the companies’ sales
force in the field. This enables the companies we
represent to fix their sales costs. With today’s ever
increasing hiring, travel, and healthcare costs, the benefits
of using a Manufacturer’s Representative is more substantial
today than ever before.
I’m a buyer of many ingredients, how can you help me?
All of us today have too much to do with too little
time. The Thurber Company can offer you solutions to
multiple ingredient issues in one contact, saving you many
calls, emails, voice mails, frustrations, time, and money.
I’m looking for an ingredient not on your list.
Talk to us. In most cases, we can source the ingredient(s)
Can you ship Internationally?
While we market our ingredients in the
Midwest, we ship throughout the world. Give us the opportunity
to show what we can do for you.
