1.1 Mission

JTB Industrial Sales will distribute and support only the highest quality services and products. With this as our primary mission, we will work closely with our valued clients to establish solid business relationships within the local Louisiana market, and in the national market as well.  Today’s market requires new approaches to marketing and client satisfaction.

Today’s client is seeking the most cost-effective alternatives while expecting the best possible products and services from its vendor base. JTB’s mission will be to provide all of the above to the Automotive, Aerospace, and Industrial marketplace.

1.2 Objectives

The primary objectives for our target markets are as follows:

  1. Integrate our distributed products and services into the industrial distribution market.
  2. Resell products and services offered by our manufacturing partners as an industrial distributor.
  3. Utilize technology software and websites to gain market share.

For many years, we have seen a niche in helping businesses with their production processes, external job costing, and expediting the purchasing of industrial supplies. Our plan calls for these services to be handled in a one-on-one fashion, wherein the client’s criteria for using the various products are reviewed, then a recommendation and a quotation is made by our Sales staff.

JTB’s Industrial Sales Division will be a base partner in the JTB network as well, and will also use this network to promote our products and services throughout our industrial partners. Utilizing our custom marketing and order processing systems, our compatibility for order processing and information processing will be greatly increased.

This technology will facilitate many typical tasks, allowing us to place requests to vendors and accept requests from customers simultaneously. As with many larger corporations requiring EDI for purchases, JTB will easily extend larger clients inventory, order tracking, and engineering information.
