Product Specialists

Frequently, the loss of an order is attributed to price. In Texas and Oklahoma, our many years of experience tell us if a product is properly presented to the correct decision makers, purchase price becomes a secondary issue. Perceived value is more significant than purchase price. We also understand that each level in the electrical channel has its own priorities. It is our job at HSW to determine the correct decision makers. It may be an owner, an owner’s agent, a specification firm, a contractor, or the purchasing agent at distribution. The sale usually starts long before the buy, even with so-called commodity products.

In addition to sales offices in Houston, Dallas, Austin, West Texas, and Oklahoma City, we maintain fulltime specification personnel in Austin, Dallas, and Houston. Throughout Texas and Oklahoma, we are averaging many direct specification contacts per month and several “specifier lunch and learn” presentations. We believe we have the finest and most effective professional specification team in the marketplace.

Our manufacturers have worked hard for many years to develop products and services that distinguish them from the competition. With this as a foundation, we create value.
