Are you ready for The Show of Shows?!
There are so many reasons to attend the show – we had some fun and put together a video to remind you of the excitement and flavor of THE place where the industry meets each year.
Interview Spotlight with JLM Wholesale
This week we catch up with Jim Lee, President of JLM Wholesale in our Q&A. You will be able to see JLM in booth #1515.
Road: JLM Wholesale promotes having access to thousands of individual items from over 80 suppliers, how do you keep all of that straight and still communicate effectively and efficiently with your customers?
Jim Lee: We have an excellent computer system that helps manage and fine tune our inventory offering.Our staff is continually trained on product applications allowing us to effectively communicate with our customers. Our people care about the customer and providing a solution for any application.
Road: Your company is very active and was a trailblazer on the internet- in 2000 you launched and ordering on line program. That seems like a century ago! Over the years how has the ordering process and the whole Internet approach progressed?
JL: True, 2000 seems like a long time ago. Since then we have continued to update our web site with current pricing, new products and technical documents just to name a few. We are always looking forward to “what’s next”. We are currently in the process of developing a new and improved web site. Stay tuned.
Road: On the glass side, there are constantly new products coming out. How about on the hardware side, of those thousands of products, are there new ones and if so anything you are particularly excited about selling?
JL: We are constantly on the lookout for new products. Since January, we’ve added dozens of brand new items to our inventory offering. Our featured products web page is continually updated and we also send a New Product Announcement email immediately upon the arrival of new products. Be sure to visit us online at jlmwholesale.com for the latest new product additions.
Road: For the folks coming to GlassBuild and those that are still deciding to come, can you tell us what they’ll see when they visit the JLM booth and why overall they should make the trip to Vegas?
JL: The GlassBuild show is an excellent venue to learn about new products and innovations for the glass and glazing industry. It’s the largest show we do all year. Our team looks forward to making contact with customers and showcasing new products and services that may have developed since last year. We look forward to GlassBuild every year.
