Highlighting the new products, support and services that are required for a new breed of customers.
Dewitt, NY: As a part of its continued effort to educate the gases and welding industry on the most relevant best practices, the Third Quarter 2010 issue of Welding& Gases Today features an article from Rick Kowey, executive vice president and chief marketing officer for Matheson, Inc. (Basking Ridge, NJ). The article is called "Emerging Markets," and it focuses on the new products, support and services that are required for a new breed of customers.
According to Kowey, The pervasiveness of industrial and scientific gases throughout the energy, environmental, medical, biotechnology, chemical and manufacturing sectors affords the unprecedented opportunity for industrial gas companies and distributors to participate in a variety of new growth segments. It has become necessary to evaluate current competencies and make dramatic moves to add to current technology and service platforms in order to accommodate the dynamic needs of these markets.
Kowey goes on to explain that recognizing that time-to-market requirements are accelerating and that it is no longer financially feasible to domicile all necessary research and development resources to address diverse market needs, industrial gas companies should seriously consider open and collaborative innovation with both small and large technology partners. Partnerships among gas companies, technology partners and independent distributors can provide the full range of products and services to support customers.
