Editor's note: The following is a conversations between MCS' Gina Cali and New Tech Machinery's Account Manager, Hayley Bohmer. You can listen to the interview or read the transcript below.
Gina Cali: Hi Haley, thanks for joining MetalCoffeeShop for the influencer question of the month, and this question for November is what are some of the things to consider when incorporating gutters into sales?
Haley Bohmer: Right, so thank you for having me by the way. When I first read this question I looked at it from a manufacturing point of view because that's where I come from. So my first thought was how existing companies or how a new company can start to sell gutter, which I think is relatively the same. But, excuse me, what you would do is first see what's prevalent in your area. We offer different sizes and they're typically based on where in the country you're located. And once you have that information you can work towards seeing what kind of machine would be right for you if you're going to make your own gutters.
So for instance maybe in Arizona you're not going to see six inch gutter machines just because it doesn't rain that much there, they don't need that bigger size, they would opt for a five inch size as an example. And then other than that there have been some new developments since COVID. We have noticed that a lot of roofing companies have added gutter to their repertoire and this has stemmed from a shortage of gutter installers. So the people that they used to call to hang gutter for them are no longer available, or they're not in business, or they don't have enough staff and they have decided to purchase their own machine and take it in house. And that's just some of what I thought of when I read this question.
Gina Cali: That sounds great Haley, and that's a unique perspective that we haven't had from the other influencers so we appreciate that, especially coming from the manufacturing perspective. And thank you so much for coming on to Influencers. Yeah, go ahead.
Haley Bohmer: Can I add one more thing? If anybody is interested in researching getting their own gutter machine, on our website, newtechmachinery.com, we have a whole section and you can click right on the machine that you're looking at, the Mach II, and it will take you to all the specs, the available options, everything you could possibly want to learn about starting a gutter business, buying our gutter machine, where to get accessories, and it even talks about our competitors.
Gina Cali: That's a tremendous resource, thank you for adding that, that will definitely be helpful on the site and for the readers. Thank you so much Haley.
Haley Bohmer: Thank you Gina, it was great to talk to you.
Gina Cali: Likewise.
