Metal Processing Equipment Provider Quoted Large Project for Tier One Steel Processor

A COACT metal processing equipment provider has had multiple conversations with a premier steel processor. Over the course of several months, COACT has built a trusting relationship with a large steel processor looking for wide width, heavy duty edging equipment. Our client was able to identify a few options consisting of both used and new equipment to offer the prospect. With the help of COACT, our client was able to diagnose the current state, and offer multiple solutions for the metal processor to choose from. As a result, the steel processor has requested continued follow up from our client, with ongoing opportunities.

AEC Corporate introductions with Global Off-Road Vehicle Manufacturer

For one of our AEC clients, COACT was able to develop a relationship and organize an introductory meeting with a leading global manufacturer of high-performance motorized vehicles for recreation and utility use. The group has significant capital plans for 2015 and is in the process of developing relationships and evaluating potential vendors for upcoming expansion work throughout North America.

Prototyping for a Michigan Automotive Supplier Leads to New Relationships for COACT Client

Through a conversation with a prospect, we identified a need for additional suppliers from the head electrical engineer with a leading independent designer and manufacturer of various systems for the automotive industry. Through ongoing communication, COACT and the client’s information were passed along to an Advanced Development/Systems Engineer who had a need for a quick-turn prototype of a specific product. This opportunity is exciting because of the prospect’s close proximity to the client’s headquarters. Key relationships have been developed between the two companies and the chance for future prototyping and production work is strong. Not only has COACT been in contact with two key engineering contacts, COACT has also identified another key contact – the Engineering Manager for Global Electronics, who is responsible for sourcing of the client’s components. This opportunity allows our client to build a relationship with a company that can provide our client with numerous opportunities for future work and become a key supplier for a new industry.
