Monthly newsletter January 2020 - everything in forging & glass

Now we're in place

I want to start by thanking the moving team for a fantastic job because now we are finally in place in the new forging workshop at Tornväktargränd in Bromma. It feels good when the machines run hot and a wonderful mix of music is played in the speakers when our skilled blacksmiths conjure up unique forging products. 

It is not often you get the opportunity to build a new forging workshop, which has been fantastic fun. Our new forging workshop has many advantages, including the surface where there is an opportunity to grow and create a good and pleasant working environment. It also feels good that we are centrally located and can continue to provide fast service within forge & glass to our costumers!  

Now we will speed up sales 

We face (as always) a number of challenges. Next we need to speed up sales. Selling is not always easy but full of challenges. Either we can choose to blame yours and hers or we stop apologizing and drive on because it is full of interesting business. Peter and Martin feel tagged for the task of driving sales forward. Here are five tips on how we can speed up our sales: 

  • Set aside time. Nothing is more important than selling. No but without realizing that your sales time is important!
  • Be quick. Get in touch with the customer quickly, leave quick quotes, give quick feedback, give fast deliveries, etc. No one likes to wait!
  • Build relationships. People want to do business with people and not with companies. So take good care of our customers at all levels!
  • Solve problems. Find out what the customer needs help with and solve it! 
  • Exceed expectations. To retain the customers we already have exceed their expectations. If they are satisfied, they will buy more and provide good references. 

Remember that no one is the best at everything, so exchange experiences and lessons, pep and help each other with the challenges that arise. Together we have lots of knowledge and strengths that allow us to deliver world-class forging and glass. Everything from beams and steel stairs to glass sections and shelf brackets. In other words, small and large. We are experts in special forging, something that others in the industry find difficult to perform. It is a privilege that we have so many skilled blacksmiths! So what do you say, do you accept the challenge?

Great interest in welding

The interest in learning to weld is great, so we have expanded the range of courses with, among other things, metal handicraft, welding evenings and weekend courses. For five years, our experienced blacksmiths have trained in welding and hundreds of course participants have received approved welding tests. So check out ours welding courses and take the chance and try something new either as a course participant or course leader. 

Nice weekend!
