To be a pioneer service provider is not an easy mission. To be the entity that fulfils its role as the first entry point for quality and trustworthy partnership requires considerable effort, patience/consistency, and efficiency. Consider it an easy target in many industrial and trading fields, but not in the field of petrochemicals distribution or plastics industry.
Over 3 decades, the GAP Gulf Group "GAP Polymers" could establish and build a prime plastics and petrochemicals distributing company. GAP Polymers is managed by a professional and experienced team who are focused on customers' satisfaction. It was a vision and still to be a pioneer service provider, but it is not easy or spontaneous to reach this goal. It needs a well-crafted strategy, time, and much more challenging work.
Let's go back to the most important question: Why do producers need distributors? or Why do you as a supplier have to deal with reliable plastic resin distributors such as GAP Polymers?
“Polymer distributors can take care of distribution services, they have a workforce, vans, trucks, so transporting the goods to wherever will be guranteed” stated by GAP Polymers expert, Mr. Hossam Shehata.
He added that the producers cannot reach all parts of the world by themselves; they can only access major points unlike polymers distributors. They know exactly how to reach a variety of markets.
Furthermore, Distributors can handle all financial problems. Distributors can help you save money that can be pumped back to many fields such as marketing and sales. The distributors also can manage cultural needs on the ground as they have the homeland they deal with so they can easily market new grades.
Based on all the reasons above, the process for the selection of the best polymer distributor would appear to be extremely important and difficult. That’s why you have to choose the distributor who can manage the whole process in a very professional way.
Besides the well structured strategy and vision, here are the 5 reasons that makes GAP Polymers comes on the top of your choices:
