Count On Us for Your Industrial & Safety Supply Needs

By the late 1950s, our retail location was changing. Tiemann recognized the industrial supply as a market that it wanted to emphasize and began actively soliciting those customers. By 1970, as a result of this approach, over 90% of our sales had moved from retail to industrial supply, including industrial safety supply.

Now, we are a general line industrial distributor, and we carry a full line of products for the maintenance, repair, and operations segment of the market. Our major product categories include:

• Cutting Tools
• Abrasives
• Safety Products
• Industrial Coatings & Equipment
• Material Handling
• Hand Tools
• Power Tools
• Machine Tools
• Janitorial Supplies
• Miscellaneous MRO Supplies

Solutions You Can Trust

Because of our high level of service and our focus on the industrial segment of the market, Tiemann's sales have grown over 50 times since the early 1970s. We are well regarded in the industry for our dedication to quality and timely service. Customer inquiries, no matter how small or detailed and complex, are answered efficiently on the phone or in the field by knowledgeable representatives. These representatives are able to suggest the best product solutions and provide appropriate supporting evidence to insure complete satisfaction on the job.

Tiemann is an active participant in SupplyFORCE, a network of more than 300 independent distributors with an excess of 2500 stocking locations throughout North America. SupplyFORCE permits customers to manage both local and national procurement requirements through an integrated supply system, while maintaining the benefits delivered by local, independent distributors. This participation of the company in SupplyFORCE gains access to national accounts it would otherwise not be able to service.

Tiemann also is a member of Affiliated Distributors (A-D), an organization headquartered in King of Prussia, Pennsylvania. A-D provides marketing expertise and also negotiates with large suppliers to obtain the most competitive pricing, terms and rebates on behalf of its distributors.

Tiemann is ISO Certified. Such certification is especially valuable in dealing with the larger, national accounts. We have also installed a state-of-the-art computer system driven by Prelude software that integrates the complete order entry, inventory control and accounting operations.

Company Strengths

Far and away, the most important strength of our company is its name and excellent reputation with, you, our customers. Through dedication and personal skills, the founders established relationships that have endured, and been nurtured by the subsequent owners, for over 85 years. Management believes that these relationships have been preserved through the company's constant attention to serving its customers and delivering its products better than any competitor in the marketplace.

Our state-of-the-art system allows us to integrate its inventory, ordering, billing, and shipping operations. This system permits close monitoring of product movement and procurement. In addition, it enables direct communication, or e-procurement, with customers through electronic data exchange (EDI) to reduce the cost of ordering and expedite deliveries for such customers.

Tiemann's real strength lies with its highly trained and experienced sales staff, including safety and cutting tool specialists that can solve customer problems, whether they involve new applications or modifications to existing procedures and products. All these strengths are coupled with superior products from well-known manufacturers that guarantee total performance.
