Greetings from Prochem
Posted by Lee_Pettengell (Lee_Pettengell), 30 January 2004Hello to all at this forum.
Some of you will know me and some will not, the reason for joining this forum is because some forum members believe that companies such as Prochem and Chemspec are complacent and disregard these carpet cleaning boards, as an employee of Prochem I would like you all to know that we read these boards with great interest, whilst logging on to this site I was asked to accept the term and conditions this states that "This forum should not be used as a medium to promote your own products" I will abide by these conditions but I ask you board members do other known companies on this site abide by these rules!!!!
If anybody does wish to contact me regarding anything please email me.
These forums are a very good idea as long as the conditions are kept too.

mmmm well not all of em noooooooo haha.
Personally i dont think its a bad thing that companys promote there own products. At least if we have a query about a certain chemical etc etc we can ask them staright from the horses mouth.
Instead of relying on hearsay from others.

Mark dont you think that these companies will give a biased opinion unlike a user who will give it to you straight.

Nice to have you participating...perhaps you will join a debate or two in future.
I think what is meant is that the out and out 'hard sell' is not what these boards are all about but I do agree with Mark that so much information is available from the suppliers, such as Prochem, relating to the Industry in general.
This information is always welcome.
I look at it this way...if Lee were to post some technical information and sign himself as an employee of Prochem then that is acceptable (Subliminal) advertising
I think we can all live with that...
I would hope that all the suppliers read the comments as they can glean information as to the needs of the industry and possible supply that need....that's the essence of good business practice isn't it?

It was I who made that statement re complacency which I gladly retract in respect of Prochem. You got to admit my post did strike a nerve with your company at least. I totally agree with Mark & Derek (input and feedback then input, without it we are dead)
Sorry Phil I agree to a point with you, but donít some cc promote one machine against another. I know I do HWE be it t/m or portable, but I will always keep an open mind be it cleaning agents or machines and have a demo then make a judgement decision can this agent/machine make me more money!
Keep all forums open too all, then you get educated.

Ps any freebies going?
Posted by Lee_Pettengell (Lee_Pettengell), 31 January 2004Dear Len
I wouldnt have said your post struck a nerve, the larger companies in this industry are always accused of ignoring these forums, at the last NCCA exhibition I was asked why Prochem never went to the local carpet cleaners days out (Sunny days out) the reason is that we are never invited. Prochem would happily attend these events, it is a good chance for people to see new equipment such as the Peak and Everest TMs.
Posted by Glynn (Glynn), 31 January 2004What do you mean ? Prochem DID come to our sunny day out ! as did Chemspec and Hydramaster.
Posted by Lee_Pettengell (Lee_Pettengell), 31 January 2004That was about 2 years ago Glynn.
Posted by Glynn (Glynn), 31 January 2004No it wasn't
