REP SPOTLIGHT: Willbanks
QuantumFlo is [pumped] to shine a light on Willbanks as our January 2024 Rep Spotlight!
Let’s get to know them:
1. What drew you to QuantumFlo as a Rep?
Our attraction to QuantumFlo stems from many factors that define its exceptional appeal. QuantumFlo stands out due to its meticulous design, showcasing a commitment to both form and function. The robust stainless construction, reflecting durability and reliability in its build. The incorporation of leading-edge controls emphasizes the company’s dedication to staying at the forefront of technological advancements. QuantumFlo also distinguishes itself through its unparalleled field support, ensuring that customers receive prompt and effective assistance whenever needed. Lastly, the user-friendly sizing interface, calQflo, adds another layer of distinction, making QuantumFlo an accessible solution.
2. What aspects of QuantumFlo’s missions or values align with your own business goals?
QuantumFlo aspires to emerge as the frontrunners in variable speed pumping technology. Their commitment involves shaping the trajectory of commercial and industrial construction by incorporating a solution crafted to leverage their extensive knowledge, experience, and leadership in the market. This vision aligns seamlessly with the Willbanks philosophy, which provides our customers with cutting-edge products while supporting their evolving needs through unparalleled service and reliability.
3. In your experience so far, what stands out to you as the most appealing feature or features of QuantumFlo’s products & services?
Products – iQFlo controls. The iQFlo systems warn you of a variety of undesirable conditions and events, utilizing a staged intervention approach. The system notifies you when it first senses a problem and only goes into alarm when the problem is bad enough to warrant a system lockout or reset. Having these events and alarms accessible and well documented makes easy work of callouts for systems “that don’t work right” by giving us insight we need to understand into “the noise it was making yesterday”.
Services – Quick Ship. It does not matter if it is a new construction project that is looking to make up for lost time, or a retrofit project looking to replace a failing system with zero downtime for occupants. The quick ship offering gives customers the option to reduce the already best in class lead times QuantumFlo offers down to 10 days. This is a game changer when a system’s sale depends more on lead time than price.
4. As a Rep, what are some specific areas where you see opportunities for collaboration and growth with QuantumFlo?
Willbanks can strategically align with QuantumFlo pumps to enhance its penetration in the plumbing market by focusing on collaborative efforts in innovation and technology integration. By working together to develop and implement advanced solutions, such as smart and energy-efficient pumping systems, both companies can differentiate themselves. Joint marketing initiatives, educational campaigns, and training programs could be established to raise awareness among plumbing professionals about the benefits of QuantumFlo pumps and how they align with Willbanks’ commitment to providing leading products and unparalleled service. This collaborative approach would not only strengthen our market position but also contribute to advancing industry standards and promoting sustainable practices in plumbing technology.
Thank you, Willbanks, for being an integral part of the QuantumFlo Family. Here’s to many more milestones and successes together in 2024! Let’s ‘Flo!
