ST. LOUIS, MISSOURI
As a part of its ongoing global growth initiatives, EFC has expanded to Frankfurt, Germany. EFC currently operates in Toronto (Canada), Querétaro (Mexico), Seoul (Korea), and Shanghai (China) in addition to several U.S. markets. The move enhances EFC’s ability to provide customers in these markets with unparalleled service and support where they operate.
EFC, a leading distributor of engineered fasteners for numerous industries, has the ability to provide unfailing local support in all markets. This is a service that is truly unique in the fastener industry. “We have operations in 6 different countries around the globe, with dedicated outside sales engineers in each of those regions; this gives us a global footprint with local coverage and support for the customers in their respective regions,” says Matt Dudenhoeffer, CEO & President, EFC International.
These local, dedicated sales engineers have extensive knowledge of a given market. They have expertise in market competition, trends, threats, and concerns. This affords them the ability to provide customized solutions and to build exceptional customer support through face-to-face customer relationships. In an increasingly global industry, these unique, robust relationships strengthen the value of EFC’s overall global presence and ability to service our customers.
“Developing new supply partners within various targeted regions is also part of our strategy to best service customers from within the region, as well as to expand our product offerings and enhance our sourcing capabilities,” Matt Dudenhoeffer, CEO.
The relationships that result from strategic expansion allow EFC to form alliances around the world. This global reach not only leads to synergy, as new relationships and suppliers are continually added but also mitigates risks posed by economic volatility, supply chain issues, and environmental or governmental regulation.
