"'It's all about service with us here at Premium,' that is the way the sales team concludes most conversations, especially when I am asking for some special attention to an order.  Over the years, we have developed a close working relationship.  I feel comfortable that Premium not only sells me products, but also has a firm understanding about exactly what I manufacture.  I also use Premium's knowledge to look at other materials that might be available on the market; Premium will provide information to assist me even if they do not carry that item.  It is not only the products or the excellent service, but the people I look forward to working with each time I call."
