The Legendary John Heltzel Retires after 40 Years!

Posted by Scotchman Industries on Mar 30, 2019 11:41:16 AM

Well, it’s official – John Heltzel retired and left us after 40 years of employment at Scotchman. It is different around here now without John sitting at his desk... a little bit lonely even. Thursday afternoon we shut off the phones and celebrated John, his 40 years of service here, and his retirement, but yesterday it was real because his chair sat vacant. John has been a friendly face and an extremely knowledgable & important asset to our customer service department for over 35 years -- He will definitely be missed around here!

Scotchman Sales Team: Real People Ready to Help with Your Metal Fabrication Equipment Needs

Posted by Scotchman Industries on Jan 29, 2018 2:40:38 PM

Every business claims to have excellent customer service, but we all know this claim isn't always the truth. 

In today’s world, it has become harder to find a real person to speak with on the phone, let alone see them face to face. All too often, when trying to navigate through an automated phone system it can become a long and drawn out process. When you’re provided with a long list of options to choose from, with many of these options leading you to a voice mail box anyway or directing you to a website.

This form of “service” is rarely helpful, and usually quite frustrating. Luckily for you, Scotchman Industries believes in the human connection and highly values open communication. Which is why we ALWAYS have someone answering our phone during office hours.

At Scotchman, our business is building ironworkers and cold saws, but our company was also founded on the principle of providing well-built machinery to help our customers find efficient solutions for their shop needs.
