Metals/tools pool account for orchidians?


#1

Hello folks, reading the discussions about buying tools and metals
from swest, stuller, hoover etc lead me to the idea that perhaps
Orchid could arrange something similar to the following: Quite a few
years ago the Creative Metal Arts Guild in Portland, Or set up a
pool purchasing account with both Swest and Hoover for their
membership through the regional sales rep for both of these
companies. I believe the first year was sort of probationary where
the membership had to account for a certain dollar amount of sales
with each company to make it worth their while I suppose to keep
offering the discounts.

It affords all CMAG members with discount pricing such as: purchasing
gold from Hoover and Strong at the 100dwt price break - even if
you’re only buying 5 dwt with Swest the discount was getting the 100
oz break for silver and 7-10% off most tools and supplies. This
arrangement has saved me literally thousands of dollars over the
years - all the more so when my business was smaller and I rarely
needed more than 5 dwt of any one type of gold at a time. Any
interest in approaching some of our suppliers with this idea on
behalf of Orchidites? Michelle
