Peculiar, MO. — I am just now reading your article in the November issue of CONTRACTOR magazine. I found it very interesting that the quote in the middle of the page speaks directly to Sioux Chief.
“We need a good show for regular plumbers and displays of behind-the-wall plumbing.”
Sioux Chief, in its 51 years of business or at least as long as we have attended trade shows, has made this their main way to show product — behind-the-wall. Obviously many of the products we manufacture are designed for applications either behind the wall or in the concrete.
We could not agree with you more. We (manufacturers like Sioux Chief) have new and innovative products that plumbers want to install and engineers want to specify (for peace of mind). It sure makes them feel good when they can see these products installed in real applications.
This is how we go to market every day, talking with and showing contractors how to do it better, quicker and with a more professional look. They can see it because we build displays that show the actual installation — they can relate.
Thanks for bringing this to our attention. We are a perfect example of what contractors want to see at trade shows.
