Email Reposting Gone Wild


In our continuing series of reposting our broadcast emails...
 (that you can SIGN UP FOR HERE) (please do) (this way you won't have to come to the blog to read them)

.. here is the latest 3rd party issue of Merrow Email Edition Four:

One think I particularly liked about this issue was that it focused on one of the reasons we've been so successful in the Textile Finishing space and it gives a nice directed shout out to our OEM partners.

The relationship with OEMs is often tricky - and at Merrow we've decided that the most productive way to define our own value to to include as much information about the implementation options as possible - and then do what we do well and publish it online.

For instance
  •  Pugi has a completely Battry Powered Industrial Sewing Table. It's pretty cool - just plug it in at night and roll it around the factory during the day. It's like the Prius of Sewing Tables. 
  • Monti and Pugi both offer very different but effective Tubular Knit Seaming Solutions. This is a tough problem and both companies have done a bang-up job solving it. 
  • We have a new cutting solution for the automatic seaming of fabrics courtesy of Birch. We should name it the 'intimidator' ... picture a circular cutting blade attached to the front of the Merrow machine running down the railway on it's own. Happy Halloween! 
And did i already mention that you would have seen this if you'd signed up for our email?

-For years Merrow has worked to develop solutions with great companies. Our 3rd party equipment providers (or OEM) are among the most sophisticated and capable in the industry. They create tremendous value for customers by simplifying the sewing process. Examples of some recent developments are the Battery Powered stations, the rail based rotary cutting blades with optical controls and automated tubular knit seaming!

 Sewing Machine Agent 767911"Merrow builds a great sewing machine, and combined with all of the OEM equipment from their partners - Merrow offers an unbeatable solution for anyone who is considering the cost of sewing. I've been able to automate half of the plants i work with and each one is saving money after the install. We sew their fabric well, and we simplify the way they do it. No one offers solutions like the Merrow OEM partners."

VIDEO:



In 2008 Merrow began selling a factory refurbished model of its industry standard M-3U. These Sewing Machines are hand built on Merrow's assembly line in Fall River,MA and include less than 6% reconditioned parts. They are effectively new sewing machines: tested and sewn off after assembly with the same rigorous standards Merrow uses for all sewing machines built in Fall River, MA. The Refurbished M-3U carries the same warranty as all new machines. It is provided by Merrow: 'to reduce the overall cost of owning and operating Merrow Sewing Machines without compromising performance'. Please call Merrow if you have any questions or concerns about the refurbished line of machines.

New reseller login for pricing and marketing content


We've spent the past couple of months asking our resellers (agents) what we could do to improve how we marketed and presented Merrow products to the world. The answer was generally -- 'GET US INFORMATION ... '

So we're starting with the place to get that information:



The agent dashboard is a place for Merrow agents to see pricing, product information and download marketing material. We have a slew of new content that we'll be rolling out first in the reseller section and then by email announcement.

As always please send an email to nate@merrow.com if you have any questions (or would like a login)

Merrow Continuous Processing


the Continuous Processing newsletter goes out

here's a screen shot ...

We've been working this month on the re-release of our nine styles of sewing machines dedicated to the joining fabric together in a continuous process.

Over the years we've been gathering information from customers about the hundreds of material types that Merrow Machines are sewing, and with the help of dozens of agents and end-users, we've standardized Merrow's 70 and 72 class line to address the most common material types.

Note that almost all of these machines have been available as custom orders in the past - the difference is that now we will keep them in stock and start new custom builds FROM each of these baselines.

We hope you enjoy the new content, please let us know if we've missed something important!
