Top 3 Questions Distributors Should Ask A Prospective Hook and Loop Fastener Supplier.
 

Since the introduction of the category 20 years ago, hook and loop fasteners have become an important part of many Industrial Distributor’s product offering. As the category continues to grow, so has the demand for unique hook and loop cable ties, cinching straps and cut-to-length tapes.

The term ‘hook & loop’ speaks to numerous fastening solutions and for the purposes of this piece, we are focusing solely on the distinct niche of hook and loop products known as hook and loop cable ties, straps and back-to-back style tapes. Two examples of these types of product lines are SPEEDWRAP® and VELCRO® Brand hook and loop fasteners.

Because everyone understands, for example, the simplicity of a hook and loop tie, PM’s (Product Managers) can underestimate the complexity of related hook and loop fasteners.  These Merchandisers often fail to ask critical question of their prospective hook and loop fastener supplier(s).

If you are considering adding a line of hook and loop ties, straps or tapes or you want to ensure your product offering and supplier partnership has you positioned properly, here’s what you want to know.

1.    Target Customers?
With each market comes a unique set of hook and loop fasteners. For example, ‘integrators’ prefer back-to-back style, hook and loop cable ties because they are gentle on wires and come in a variety of colors. These installers also need ‘mounting’ solutions to route cords in closets. Maintenance, repair and operation customers require heavier duty straps that ‘cinch down’ on large bundles of cables or hoses. Serving the marine industry? You need polyester materials. And within just these three market examples, tons of lengths, widths, colors and materials offerings exist.

Many hook and loop manufacturers specialize in certain products or markets, so you want to ensure you are meeting with the one(s) that are experienced with customers you are targeting.

2.    Look at your competitor’s product offering last.
In today’s economic environment, most Industrial Distributors are operating with a ‘leaner’ staff. Since 2008, many PM’s are overwhelmed and can be forced to cut corners. For example, if the PM is adding a new line of hook and loop ties and straps, they tend to look primarily at their competitors. If you were short on time, wouldn’t you? As a result, they ask the potential supplier to quote on those items and little else. This can be a huge mistake, especially with this product category.

Just like your company, your competitor may ‘run lean’ and their Merchandisers may only evaluate a product category once every three years. When it comes to hook and loop fasteners, three years are like dog years! If your competitor added or last evaluated their line of hook and loop products three years ago, there might be 20 new products that are better sellers or have replaced them.

For example, your competitor might be selling black fire retardant hook and loop ties, when recently the industry has gravitated to cranberry as the default color for FR ties and Plenum Rated ties. Copy your competitor and you are selling yesterday’s news!

3.    Ask the supplier: What challenges will YOU encounter, post-product launch?
I humbly submit to you that this is the number one question PM’s overlook.
Mr. Potential Supplier, what products do you think we need, why and what challenges will my company encounter after we start selling them?” That’s a million dollar question.

“Mr. PM, I should also point out that once you stock these items in this size, in black, a big customer will call and ask for that item in red.  The request for ‘unique’ or non-stocked items is going to be your top challenge.” Now that is a key piece of information.  And with The Distribution of hook and loop fasteners, this is not only the challenge but also one the best opportunities.

Once you force this evaluation process to focus down stream, the real important factors are exposed.  For example, how is your prospective supplier going to help you service those ‘non-stocked’ or ‘NIC’ items? Do they manufacture or are they merely reselling these items to you?  How quickly can they turn around your customer’s request? Are they geographically desirable? Do they offer drop-shipments and in a confidential manner? Are their products UL rated and are they ISO Certified?

Conclusion
Yes, ask your standard supplier evaluation questions about the sale and product opportunity, profitability, specs and support. But when it comes to this niche of hook and loop fasteners for cord, cable and hose management, failing to ask the three questions I have offered today causes problems for your customers, your buyers and your customer service department.  A truly qualified hook and loop fastener manufacturer, can ensure you are positioned to succeed and for years to come.

Speedtech INTRODUCES NEW Speedwrap® Brand Cinch Straps with End Grommets

 

 

Racine, Wisconsin – September 5th, 2013Speedtech International Inc., the manufacturer of SPEEDWRAP® brand hook and loop cable management products and wholesaler of VELCRO® brand fasteners, introduces SPEEDWRAP® brand cinch straps with end grommets.

Speedtech’s new line of SPEEDWRAP® Brand cinch straps with end grommets are similar to SPEEDWRAP®, ‘Standard Cinch Straps’ and similar to VELCRO® brand VELSTRAPS®, in that they feature a ‘tip’ of hook material sewn or welded to a fixed length of loop material, with a buckle at its end.   Two of the most popular examples of fixed length, hook and loop cinch straps are SPEEDWRAP® brand Cinch Straps and the VELCRO® brand VELSTRAP®.

The new addition to the SPEEDWRAP® family of cinch straps builds upon the popular SPEEDWRAP® brand ‘standard cinching strap design’ with the addition of a brass grommet located just past the plastic buckle, at the end of the strap.  The brass grommet is recommended for use with a #12 or M5 screw. 

The new family of mountable SPEEDWRAP® brand hook and loop cinch straps are gentle on wires and fiber, reusable and allow users to mount the cinch straps (including the objects or wires fastened within them) to almost any surface.  Steve Pope, Vice President of Speedtech International, the manufacturer of SPEEDWRAP® fasteners explains, “One of the most popular applications for our end grommet style cinching straps are data centers. A data center may have 1,000 cabinets, all screwed to side rails on racks.  Our grommet-style cinch straps are mounted to these rails during the cabinet installation. After the cabinets are built and the racks are installed, integrators use our SPEEDWRAP® Cinch Straps to route, mount and organize all the wires, power cords and cables in the closet. Aside from just cleaning up these tight ‘rack-n-stack’, managing all that wiring, fiber and power cords in a tighter fashion, actually helps improve air flow in the closet!”

Installers and corporations spend millions of dollars on data centers and each individual cabinet can have several hundred cables. For example, a typical cabinet might have 85 power cords, not to mention all the CAT-6, fiber or SMTP cables. With the increase in investment in these data centers and with so many cables, the demand for mountable hook and loop fastening solutions has also grown- especially higher quality ones.  Steve Pope comments, “After investing in expensive data centers, Corporations, installers and integrators are not going to ‘skimp’ when it comes to quality cable management solutions.  Instead, integrators want the highest quality cord and cable management solutions.  When it comes to quality hook and loop cinch straps, SPEEDWRAP® brand cinch straps and the VELCRO® brand VELSTRAP® are among the best.” 

The SPEEDWRAP® brand of hook and loop products are considered the ‘industrial grade’ fastener line and a brand of choice for integrators.  Speedtech’s, SPEEDWRAP® cinch straps with end grommets are made in the USA at Speedtech’s ISO 9001:2008 Certified factory located in Racine, Wisconsin. The new SPEEDWRAP® brand cinch straps with end grommets have a peel rating of 2 PIW and a shear value of 14 PSI, have an average tensile rating of 50lbs, are made of nylon, feature a plastic ring and brass grommet. These new mountable hook and loop cinch straps are reusable, come standard in .75” and 1” widths, are available in a variety of lengths and come standard in black. Other sizes and colors are available by special order.

While there are numerous hook and loop fastener styles, fewer fastener solutions are designed to help mount those wire or cable bundles to a surface exist.

Press Release #2:

Speedtech International Inc.
Delivers Hook and Loop Fastening Solutions

Speedtech International Inc. has an innovative new product: an infinitely adjustable hook and loop fastening solution.

The Speedwrap® U-BUNDLE/U-BUCKLE KIT™ is ideal for covering a wide variety of applications in which a customer needs to route, organize or bundle their cables and wires or larger objects, but they don’t want to inventory several different sized Cinch Straps.

In addition to its flexible sizing, the U-BUNDLE/U-BUCKLE KIT™  features a unique self-engaging fastening system with both hook and loop on the same surface.  While consumers are just getting accustomed to back-to-back hook and loop cable ties where the hook material is bonded to the loop material, back-to-back, the U-BUNDLE/U-BUCKLE KIT™ is a simple, yet highly innovative solution.

Speedtech International’s lead designer, Chris Karnowski explains why this fastening solution was designed.

“By utilizing a hook loop tape where the hook & loop is on the same side, it adheres to itself. You can wrap the hook loop tape around an object, insert it through the buckle, then pull the slack towards you for a cinching and secure hold.  No sew or welds to deal with, fully adjustable throughout its entire length. The value of the U-BUNDLE/U-BUCKLE KIT™ is you can create a wide variety of strap lengths to fit your specific application,” said Karnowski.

Sold on a user friendly 15 foot “roll” configuration, the consumer simply measures the required length of material and cuts it to length.  As a third step, the user inserts the hook and loop strap through one of the included buckles, cinching the strap down and then laps the strap onto itself for a secure hold.

Some of Speedtech’s Maintenance Repair and Operations (MRO) Distributors, like McMaster-Carr Supply Company, add to why the product fills a void in the hook and loop fastening category. Marketed as a single component closure system, it offers a truly unique alternative to traditional two component hook and loop closures.

McMaster-Carr is supplying the U-BUNDLE/U-BUCKLE KIT™ which includes fifteen feet per roll and ten buckles. The fastening solution reduces customer inventory by covering a wide range of applications.

In addition to these benefits, users can create other straps from this kit which are easy to use and reuse and are soft against cables, wires and CAT-5 cabling.  The U-BUNDLE/U-BUCKLE KIT™ is an environmentally friendly product since there is no waste and it can be reused time after time.
