H Style Gridwall unit: Western Rugged Tools can provide a stand-alone metal grid wall display unit. The display unit occupies a space 4’x4′ and requires a space of 6’x6′ in order to allow customer access. This unit is ideal for showcasing power tool line and for merchandising clamp line or power tool accessory line. The advantages of our display unit include:
- Greater attention and focus to Western Rugged line.
- Clean and professional display of full line of products.
- Ability to take power tools out of package, which increases sales as customers are able to feel the product. This also deters customers from opening multiple packages.
Western Rugged Tools believes the addition of the H style grid wall unit is a sign of commitment to the line from the dealer. As a result Western Rugged Tools assists the dealer with this investment by subsidizing the cost of the unit and by assisting in the setup of the unit. Western Rugged Tools will pay for all signage on the unit and the retailer pays for all hardware. Our sales rep will also assist in the initial setup and display of the unit. The total cost to the dealer is generally $450 for this unit.
In store signage: If a dealer is interested in committing a section of their shelving to Western Rugged product then Western Rugged Tools will assist in marketing the area by committing Western Rugged signage. This signage generally identifies the product lines to be carried in the dedicated area. This type of program is dealt with case-by-case and must receive prior authorization from Sunjeev prior to commitment to customer.
