Take a tour of the Mansfield Plumbing facility in Perrysville, Ohio and the scope of the operation is mind-boggling. Coley Herrin and his associates at Plumbing Distributors (PDI) out of Lawrenceville, Georgia recently experienced the impressive team at Mansfield creating sanitaryware products.
“The thing that impressed me the most about the plant tour was how hard the people work and how committed they are to doing a good job,” says Herrin, president and COO of Plumbing Distributors. “We’ve been selling Mansfield products since 1992. Seeing their facility strengthens my feeling that this is a good company to do business with on a day-to-day basis.
“The biggest reason for PDI to sell Mansfield products is the people who work for Mansfield. We have a great relationship with a large number of people within Mansfield and their local rep in Georgia. I’m a true believer that you don’t buy from companies, you buy from people.”
Herrin extends that philosophy to his customers, explaining that his company’s business mix encompasses plumbers, remodelers, builders and consumers. “We have never met a customer we didn’t like,” says Herrin.
According to Herrin, the bottom line for him is that Mansfield has a great brand. “Mansfield has a well known and trusted brand,” says Herrin. “Customers have high expectations when they buy Mansfield products … and Mansfield delivers.”
