Get Spec'd! Borroughs Offers AIA Classes

Borroughs is pleased to announce our new AIA (American Institue of Architects) certified classes. Why are we doing this and what are the benefits? More spec'd products equals more sales.

In mid-2012, we welcomed a new Sales Education Director, whose focus in part has been to make Borroughs more 'architect friendly'. We developed the new face-to-face classes as a way to familiarize architects with Borroughs products.

Borroughs' new AIA certified class is called Optimal Storage Solutions. During the presentation of these classes we will have a dealer/distributor representative there plus our regional sales manager. The benefit of us offering the class is twofold: 1) We will have fifteen minutes to “sell Borroughs” by answering specific questions from the architect as well as the opportunity to learn about their upcoming projects. 2) These classes have a history of leading to large future project sales. Plus the implication of building a relationship with architects could lead to constant large project sales in an area.

This is a very exciting time for us. If you are targeting architects or have questions about this program please, contact Jason Arledge at (office) 269-388-4048 or We'll be more than happy to answer questions and set up your next lunch and learn.

Borroughs Welcomes Tom Gambon

He has over 31 years in accounting within the manufacturing industry, and started his career with McGraw-Edison. While at Borroughs Tom has set his sights on helping us maximize our manufacturing potential.

Tom has lived in the Kalamazoo area for 20 years with his wife Debbie. They have three children–two daughters and one son. He enjoys basketball and football, and plays softball, golfs and skis.

Mark Your Calendars for MATS in Kentucky

Kentucky's annual Mid-America Truck Show, or MATS, is the country's biggest heavy duty trucking event in the world. Borroughs will be exhibiting for the first time at the Mid-America Trucking Show in booth #69177, March 21-23. If you're in the area, the show is open to the public so drop by and say hi.

From the MATS web-site:

The Mid-America Trucking Show is more than a tradeshow. It is the annual forum for the heavy-duty trucking industry, providing face-to-face interaction between industry representatives and trucking professionals. Attendees are driven to MATS because they can efficiently research the latest products and services to provide their business with a competitive edge. Exhibitors participate in MATS to effectively introduce new offerings, increase brand awareness, promote products and connect with suppliers, customers, and prospects.
