Power Transmission Association Releases Purchasing Report

December 19, 2003—The Power Transmission Distributors Association's (PTDA) latest report claims that U.S. and Canadian end users consider the product quality/reliability to be the most important factor in their purchasing decisions.

American end users participated in a study conducted by the Reed Research Group. Canadian surveys were conducted through Plant magazine.

According to Reed's press release, on-time delivery was considered the most important factor in choosing between power transmission vendors in the U.S.

Product knowledge and follow through were also rated highly. Among U.S. buyers, 47% based decisions on price. The same held true for 50% of Canadian buyers.

Other results are available for purchase by end users in the U.S. for $49.95 to PTDA members and $349.00 to non-members. Canadian results are available only to PTDA members for free by visiting the PTDA website.
