INTERMARKET Celebró su 20 Aniversario en Gráficas de las Américas 2007

El Impresor Internacional 29 años

Cuando hablamos de distribuidores de Artes Gráficas, lo primero que viene a nuestras mentes son distribuidores de materiales y algunos proveedores de soluciones. El secreto del éxito en una industria tan competitiva es la habilidad de aconsejar, entregar, y dar servicio a clientes meticulosos que enfrentan también demasiada competencia. Gran parte del éxito de las empresas pequeñas, medianas y alguna que otra de gran tamaño, depende de su relación con sus proveedores. Generalmente, el equipo correcto y los consumibles apropiados pueden hacer crecer o destruir a una empresa. Un buen proveedor es un amigo digno de confianza que se interesa por el éxito de la empresa tanto como el dueño, ya que crecerán juntos.

Intermarket se inició hace 20 años en una cocina y ahí decidieron hacer un negocio: la atmósfera acogedora de la cocina les proporcionaba el café que los mantenía despiertos durante horas y horas en lo que diseñaban el nuevo negocio. Desde el inicio la meta de Intermarket fue satisfacer los requerimientos de sus clientes. Su mercado abarcaba Latino America y el Caribe, una vasta región de más de 25 mercados y más de 40 mil impresores, diferentes usos horarios y áreas de difícil acceso. Imaginen las políticas de entrega, créditos y pagos que una compañía debe implementar para poder dar servicio a un mercado así.
