What do we call service?  3-day turn times!!

I was talking to a potential customer and I asked him what type of turn-around times he was getting from one of the biggest labs in the Twin Cities area.  He stated "10 to 15 days.  And I had to pay a rush charge to get my gages back in 5 days."  That's NOT what we call service.  You'll never pay a rush charge for what we do everyday - 3-day turn times!!  It's your gage and you're waiting for it, so we turn it around quickly - that's service!!     John Moorhouse, President
