The problem with evolution is that it’s always evolving…

rosuvastatin generic price еnhance I’m sitting here inside today, partially because I’ve got a lot going on with Archteva, and partially because it’s hotter than blue hades outside and it just rained, meaning that this afternoon’s planned bike ride is going to either not happen or it’ll be a pedaling sauna. Neither outcome are good in my book.

By now most of you know that I’ve moved on to the next phase in my career by selling Energy Control to the staff. My guys are an amazing team and it had always been the plan to let them take over management of the company, but an opportunity came up that I simply couldn’t let get away.

Reatec is the number one selling fusion product in the entire world, due in most part to the simple fact that Sangetsu is a purely design driven company with quality involved at every step of their internal processes. Sangetsu make myriad interior finish products, from flooring, fabrics, acoustical treatments, glass films and many, many more. All of their products are leaders in their industry within their international markets.

The market here in the United States still doesn’t fully understand the value and integration points of fusion finishes, so the management at Sangetsu approached me about helping lead the way within the american design community. I simply couldn’t say no, so I’ve been involved with Sangetsu at some level for the last year. During that time, there has been a lot of action to align our efforts with the american market. First and foremost, we have acquired Koroseal Interior Products to give us sales, logistical and marketing support on a scale in keeping with size of Sangetsu’s plans. That transition is now substantially complete.

But I’m still here at Archteva, creating those highly unusual architectural elements and projects that you’ve come to know over the years. Please feel free to reach out anytime!

It’s design show time in the Big Apple

Six years ago, Archteva started attending the International Contemporary Furniture Fair in NYC, because we consulted on a design project on behalf of 3M. In two weeks our team will be returning, to see this year’s newest design trends. Let us know if you’re going to make it out to the show.

Facepalm…

Today I had a huge “facepalm” moment when I was contacted by a 30 year veteran installer of one of the products that I represent…one with which I have significant personal experience in installations.

His problem was that he had a design client that wanted the product installed in a situation that was, frankly, impossible. It simply is a bad fit for the product and there is no way that it will be a successful outcome. We both know that the designer will be unhappy…with the installation, with the installer and with the product. He was hoping that I’d have a miraculous solution to his quandary. Sadly, I let him know that there simply wasn’t anything that I could do to help.

How did this happen? Simple. That product’s manufacturer has taught it’s entire salesforce to sell benefits that are simply not real. The designer wants to believe the manufacturer’s rep…because she wants the result that she has been led to believe that the product can achieve. Sadly, she discounts my installer friend’s experience…because the “manufacturer said it was ok”. Nevermind that the installer has vast experience with the product and the manufacturer’s rep has none.

Designers…consult experienced installers when making finish decisions. Don’t believe everything a commission-paid sales rep tells you. Build your circle with trusted, experienced reps that care as much about you and your personal success as they do about their paycheck…because without your success, their longterm success is doomed.

Rant over.

Seeyond!

Many of our clients know our product offerings and love the versatility of Lumicor, the amazing transformations of Finish Fusion and the timeless beauty of Okite Quartz, but our wonderfully odd offering, Seeyond, is currently getting the most discussion. Seeyond can’t easily be described…it simply has to be seen. Here’s a quick picture of a Seeyond installation. Check out more of the amazing system at Seeyond.com
