There is a Price and There is a Cost
When it comes to choosing which vendor you are going to use for a job, are you just buying on price? Please don't. There is a price, and an ultimate end cost for every job you do. Price vs. Cost The price of a competitor might be below ours, but when you add up all of the actual costs to receive and install the material, is there really a cost savings? If you chose the lowest price, you may deal with late delivery, poor quality or incorrect parts and a lack of or delayed communication. If you choose the lowest price, you will get what you pay for. Risk vs. Reward It might seem like a risk to purchase from a supplier that isn't the "lowest price." The rewards are greater than the risk. Albina will provide you with a "fair price" and we will provide you with a better quality product. We will provide you the correct parts the first time. We will provide on-time delivery. Our trained, experienced staff will provide unmatched service and communication related to every aspect of your project. Albina Co., Inc. Steel Bending Experts
