Midwest Sales & Marketing Inc. prides itself on representing manufacturers that are leaders in their field.  The Hartland, Wis.-based Midwest Sales represents high-quality manufacturers such as Delta Faucet Company, Uponor, Insinkerator, Triangle Tube, US Boiler and Fluidmaster.  “We feel our manufacturers have led in innovation, that’s why we have partnered with them,” Matt Rodamer, who is the owner and president of Midwest Sales, comments.

Midwest Sales & Marketing was founded in 2000 by three individuals involved in the industry for decades. The wealth of business knowledge the original partners had gave Midwest Sales a solid foundation to grow on. Midwest Sales continues to represent a full line of HVAC and Plumbing manufacturers in the Midwest.

The Blue Ocean Strategy, first described in an October 2004 issue of Harvard Business Review and later expanded upon in a book of the same name, compares markets to two kinds of “oceans.” “Red oceans” are all of the markets now in existence, which are overcrowded with similar and commodity products, leaving companies to compete mainly based on price.

Conversely, the “blue ocean” is a wide-open market space with new and unique products and services untouched by competition. “We truly buy into this idea,” says Jeff Young, director of engineered services and sales for Manchester, N.H.-based manufacturer’s representative J&K Sales Associates. “When we take on a product line, we are looking for something that separates us from the rest. We’re looking for something technologically advanced and above and beyond what’s currently on the market.

By Eric Slack

Tracing its legacy back to 1957, Tim Morales & Associates is an offshoot of the then-Nashville-based J.H. Morales Sales Co. Tim Morales & Associates covers the Gulf Coast states of Alabama, Mississippi and Louisiana, as well as the Florida Panhandle. From headquarters in Mobile, Ala., the company is an independent sales agency focused on the wholesale plumbing and industrial distribution channels.

“I believe we are among the hardest-working agencies out there,” President Tim Morales says. “We always try and shoot straight with our customers and clients.”
