Paying Respect to Canada

Canada is draped in fascinating history and a strong sense of independence.  Not only is Canada the second largest country in the world but is also the largest country in the Western hemisphere.  When taking a poll on the best country to work and live in Canada was voted number one for many years by the United Nation. Being Canadian means you take pride in diversity and multiculturalism, unity, freedom and independence, setting them aside from most country’s these values are the characteristics of being Canadian. Canada consists of ten provinces and three territories, uniting North America to Canada is the five lakes reside in separate basins; they form a single, naturally interconnected body of fresh water, within the Great Lakes Basin. The lakes form a chain connecting the east-central interior of North America to the Atlantic Ocean.

Canada is rich in natural resources. It is a world leader in value of mineral exports and produces and exports many of the mineral needed for modern industrial economies. Canada’s one of the world’s largest exporters of agricultural products. Forests cover much of the land, and Canada is the world’s largest exporter of newsprint and a leading supplier of lumber, pulp, paper, and wood products. Another booming industry that the whole country benefits off of is the Flooring industry, the Canadian carpet industry produces millions of dollars’ worth of quality carpeting every year.  In fact, the carpet industry in North America is the largest one in the world, more so than in Europe or the Middle East. You’ll discover a high quality product and know that you’ve helped strengthen Canada’s growing economy and helps create jobs.

 

There are numerous famous people from Canada and I will tell you about some of them. Some of the singers include, Shania Twain, Celine Dione, Nelly Furtado, Seth Rogen, Corey Hart, The Bare Naked Ladies, and Drake. Some of the sports stars include, Wayne Gretzky, Dr. James Naismith (creator of basketball), Owen Hart, Bret Hart, and Patrick Roy. Some of the actors and actresses include, Michael J. Fox, Mike Myers, Jim Carey, and Pamela Anderson. Not to mention Canada’s most successful NHL team has been the Montreal Canadians, they have won an astonishing 23 Stanley Cups. Canada has produced some of the best singers, actors, and sports figures in the world and I think this is a trend that’s going to continue well into the next millennium.

 

Accu-Cut has built a strong and loving history with Canada; we have established and created a lasting bond. Our Founder Scott Brockie is a local and learned everything he knows about the flooring industry from being Canadian. All of our high quality and reliable carpet cutting equipment is manufactured in Canada to ensure that our consumers enjoy the benefits of well-made and lasting machines.

Redesigning our world

Getting what you paid for is the main goal for our consumers. A lot of hard work goes on behind the scene to insure that everyone is satisfied with the end result. Everything neatly in its place, we feel like the best job was done. What happens when the work in complete? The extra strips of carpet that couldn’t be used, and the old carpet that was taken out. A majority of people fill a dumpster up and have it hauled away not realizing where it’s going and what effects that the final resting place will have. Taking a moment to find out how the flooring industry can help the environment you will be amazed. We are turning into a recycling generation, not only can you turn scraps and old carpet into new products that are Eco friendly but your also supporting new jobs.

 

Each carpet installer cleans up after they have completed their job… They pile all scraps and extra pieces and move one to the next job. There are thousands of carpet stores nationwide, imagine the amount of space there would need to be to accommodate the entire flooring stores across the nation. The amount of land or landfills is growing and one thing that we can’t make any more of is land. So with keeping our future in mind, people started recycling and reusing carpet. From carpet tiles to even auto parts, you can recycle anything. Even taking old rolls of carpet and recycling them, so that other families can benefit from the joy of something reused but looks and feels like new.

 

Accu-Cut offers the same in our Carpet cutting machines, we don’t just move on the latest and greatest designs. Our equipment has stood the test of time and with some consumers over 13 years on one machine. We buy back all of our machines if they are no longer needed or if some are moving on to different textiles. Accu-Cut and Crescent Services teamed up to give back to all our customers, budgets are important and we are here to work with you and your business. Any older machines that are brought home, we take great care of each one. Restoring, replacing, and rebuilding our Carpet cutting machines. Having a true passion for the things we do, takes president over everything. We are doing our part to keep the environment clean and in balanced, taking the time to see the bigger picture can be rewarding to everyone.

Simplicity of Sales

A key to successfully sharing and selling a product, service or idea, is to ask questions and then listen quietly and carefully to the answers. Many of us try too hard to convince people to buy instead of discovering what our future customer or client really want’s, needs and desires from us.

Your role in the sales process is to present your product in a clear, concise and truthful manner—with integrity. The best customer is the customer who can make an educated decision based on what is best for them. A loyal customer is an educated customer. You are not in the convincing business; you are in the sharing business. Your job is to ethically offer the product, service or idea, explain the benefits and answer questions. Your customer or client will then make a buying decision based on the information they’ve been given. Making the sale is about asking questions, answering questions and building a trustworthy win-win relationship.

Here my 3 simple ways to hold and keep the attention of my customers.

1-Listen without an agenda, it’s not about your needs.

2-Don’t try to talk someone into something, listen to what they want.

3-Serve others by asking questions that will assist them in making a wise buying decision.

 

Sometimes, we are so excited to share everything we know about what we’re offering that we forget it is about your potential customer’s expectations. What is important to you may not be important to them. Accu-cut has taken these simple rules and applied them to our daily structure. Our carpet cutting machine can sell itself, but it’s the knowledge of the product and listening to the needs of our clients that have allowed us to be so successful.

 

Family Owned and Operated

Family Owned and Operated                                                                           May 30th, 2013

We have a unique quality that has established our company and sent our sales off the chart. Watching the hard work turn in to a successful enterprise that will surpass to the next generation. Entrepreneur Scott Brockie worked from the bottom up, working long hours in a carpet store. He later moved on to creating, manufacturing and selling the Accu-Cut carpet cutting machine. He understands what it takes to run, and operate a successful business.

His ambitions and drive was passed down to his son Trevor Brockie, who in his own right has earned the Vice President title. Not only is he willing to stay late nights to tend to his consumers, but offers help via cellphone anytime. His customer service skills are immaculate and genuine, it takes this kind of dedication to stand out from other competitors.

He exudes confidence about the machinery that he promotes. Offering face time with his clients so they can see first hand how our machinery operates and functions. Answering and showing all the facts is his key strategy, when a machine is this good it will, has, and can sell itself. Quality products matched with outstanding customer service keeps your revenue flowing, and your local community standing by your side.

How many companies can get their staff to be truly invested in their ideas? The answer is very few. Most people look at their jobs as jobs; We create windows of opportunity and utilize the best traits of our employees. Not only do you have to keep your consumers happy but you have to keep your in house staff satisfied. Each member of our team plays an important role in our success. The loyalty and commitment is a key factor in what it takes to represent a company. We are happy to part of the “Few” that have a dedicated staff.


By hand

As we go about our day to day, do we look back to see how far we have advanced?  It almost seems like the Stone Age to think the carpet industry was born on its hands and knees. There is a lot of respect to be given to the companies that started out by doing everything by hand. As the years have gone by many have progressed, going from cutting on the floor to running large warehouses and increasing productivity.

How many companies make products that really hold up over the years? It’s easier to say it, than to experience it and depend on it daily. Accu-Cut is not the only company that makes great machinery, but we have proven to be the number one machine nationwide. Floor Covering Weekly just printed their “Top Fifty U.S. Specialty Flooring Retailers” Accu-Cut Machines are in Forty out of fifty of the top stores in the nation. Accu-Cut recognizes the needs of customers and offers aid and solutions around the clock. Accu-Cut is a family owned business that will be passed on to generation after generation, like the fine machinery they make.

 

I have had a chance to speak with many customers that have an Accu-Cut machine. I came across a business owner who has had his machine for over twenty years. Most people look at the machine and see wear and tear and are ready to upgrade or sell. This business owner wouldn’t not part with his machine, He didn’t care that his machine was aged he was most proud of the way it runs, just like when he first bought it. This is a rarity these days and makes Accu-Cut stand out more than any other carpet cutting machine.

One of my very first customers

I was driving in downtown Orlando a few days ago and drove by a warehouse that I could see rolls of carpet in from the road.
I popped in to see who they were and I saw the big sign up hanging that said “Cutting Edge Carpet”. I realized right away that this was one of my first customers that I sold a machine to about 12 years ago. I remembered the owner’s name. His name is Lance. I walked in and asked the warehouse man if Lance was available. I was pointed to Lance’s office. I walked in and spoke to Lance. What a great guy. I had spoken to him on the phone before but never in person. We sat and had a great chat for about 30 minutes. His carpet cutting machine is doing great and he was happy that I popped in. It is great to put a face to a name and it’s great to see customers face to face. I love travelling and seeing when people are happy with their carpet cutting machine. Until next time.
