Manufacturers Representatives servicing the Great Lakes region in industrial manufacturing for three decades.

Being in the purchasing arena for manufacturing for 20+ years,  I was never very keen on manufacturer's representatives in the past.  I didn't see the value that they could bring, until I started working with F.R. Burger & Associates. Brian Burger knows materials and manufacturing concepts, he has an excellent book of principal manufacturers that can satisfy almost any manufactured component; with particular specialties in high tolerance, highly engineered components for industrial applications. Brian really works for his clients; helping to negotiate pricing, delivery, and always willing to step in to resolve quality concerns. I feel like he is looking out for my best interest as a client, not the manufacturer he represents. I highly recommend F.R. Burger & Associates.
