Quality & Service That Lasts A Lifetime
‘BEST EVER’ AND NEW TOOLS:
From the company's beginning, Reed associates have invented tools that continually become industry standards, including the Quick Release™ Tubing Cutter, various tools for plastic pipe, vises, plus Hinged and Rotary® cutters for large diameter pipe. In addition to new tools, each year Reed makes end-user driven improvements and refinements to existing tools. The "Best Ever" designation is given to a tool whose quality, benefits, or performance has been significantly improved over all previous versions.
These continuous improvements are advantages to buying Reed. "Why Reed"statements throughout our literature and Web site explain why that tool is superior to any other on the market. The information can be used with confidence to compare Reed products with competitive methods.
2005 finds Reed offering new reusable, protective pouch packaging and developing new tools to add to the breadth and depth of the company's tool line. Additions include the DM3MECH Mechanical Hot Tapping Machine, many new hole cutting options for the Hole Master®, PEX Crimpers, extended "deep well" sockets, more Dual Socket Ratchet Wrenches, MC3SL spring-loaded mini cutters, and new Round It™ Rerounders for 1/2-inch and 1-inch copper tubing. Almost every Reed tool is produced using computer numerically controlled (CNC) machines, resulting in ever better quality. Nearly every Reed tool is the best of its kind in the world, outlined in "Why Reed" statements, and each offers a Full Lifetime Warranty.
Reed's latest catalog features 8 pages of brand-new tools added to the full-line catalog. A Spanish-language catalog is available at www.reedmfgco.com or on CD. It joins a 16-page Reed Chinese catalog, also on the Reed Web site. Reed's full-line catalogs contain:
- Cutters & Cutter Wheels
- Groovers, Power Drives, Threaders & Dies
- Clean Room Tools
- Water Services Tools & Machines
- Plastic Pipe Tools
- Large Diameter Pipe Tools
- General Pipe Working Tools
Committed to providing the best customer service in the industry, Reed's principal goal is to ship 98 percent of orders complete within three days. Since many inside sales people are trained with outside sales personnel, they know the tools, the industry, and the answer to just about any question. Reed's customer service staff routinely strives to expedite rush orders the day of receipt, thus helping distributors and tool-users meet their own service obligations. Reed's complete team of Reed Associates, Regional Managers and Manufacturer's Reps works together to provide excellent service to distributors and tool-users.
