Premier Supplier Spotlight: PT Coupling – Where Values Align
The partnership we have with PT Coupling is deeply rooted in our shared values. For more than 65 years, PT has met our standards of excellence while living up to its core standards of quality, service, and integrity. From a product perspective, PT supplies us with the most complete line of cam & groove couplings in the world, utilizing aluminum, brass, stainless steel, ductile iron, hard coat aluminum, carbon steel, polypropylene, food grade polypropylene and nylon. In turn, we are one of their largest distributers in North America.
Our relationship, however, extends beyond product distribution. The President of PT Coupling, Matt Parrish, describes our overlap in ideals:
“TIPCO and PT share the same philosophy about customer service and product quality.”
We work as a team to serve a wide variety of industries, including petroleum, chemical, MIL SPEC, construction, landscaping, power generation, OEM, food and beverage, potable water, dry material handling and government contracting.
Matt continues, “TIPCO’s sales force is skilled at building relationships with their customers. For this reason, we have a better idea of customers’ needs and are thus challenged with opportunities to provide improved engineered solutions for their customers.”
In 2019, PT is looking to grow its product line for over-the-road tank trucks in dry bulk and liquids. They are focused on bringing new products to the market that promote safety for the operator and the environment. TIPCO is looking forward to deepening our long-standing relationship with PT Coupling while providing the best products to our customers.
At TIPCO’s annual sales meeting, PT Coupling presented Rob Lyons, president of TIPCO, their award for being an achieving member of PT's Performance Distributor Program (PDP) by reaching their 2018 sales targets.
