Industrial Manufacturers’ Representative Agency

Finding great sales reps is not an easy task. And if your best rep leaves, your pipeline could dry up while you hire and onboard a replacement.

As an industrial manufacturer, outsourcing your sales function to a manufacturers’ rep agency makes sense.

Successful manufacturers know:

  • Hiring an independent rep agency can be more cost-efficient than hiring and managing an inhouse sales force.

  • Independent rep agencies bring existing, sought-after industry relationships to the table.

  • Having access to a full complement of expert sales reps without the HR headaches can save an enormous amount of time and effort.

Durrie Sales is an industrial manufacturers’ representative agency that specializes in manufacturers of cutting tools, fasteners and accessories for the industrial manufacturing industry.

For industrial manufacturers seeking a trusted partner to build pipelines and grow revenue, Durrie Sales brings more than 80 years of industry expertise and relationships plus an unwavering commitment to quality service.

Your success is our purpose.
