Preferred Building Products and KaneSterling: Past, Present & Future Partners in Success
ERIE, Pennsylvania - April 30, 2012 – The recipe for customer satisfaction in the architectural metal products industry is simple: one part innovative product offering and one part knowledgeable representative.
Proof of this formula’s past - and inevitable future - success, lies within Illinois-based Preferred Building Products’ (PBP) longstanding, 18-year partnership with architectural railing and security screens manufacturer, KaneSterling.
“While many architectural products companies are struggling with standard, commodity products, KaneSterling is innovative and willing to customize their products to meet job-specific requirements,” said Preferred Building Products Owner and President, Wayne Orsan. “The greatest benefit to representing KaneSterling is the quality of products that we can offer the customer.”
Likewise, KaneSterling Director of Sales, Vince Tutino, discussed the value of employing a veteran architectural products representative such as Wayne Orsan.
“Preferred Building Products has been a consistent performer in representing the KaneSterling brands. Through the years, Wayne has demonstrated a great understanding of the Chicago area market, and a focus on customer service that is a model of professionalism,” Tutino said.
Headquartered in Geneva, Illinois, Preferred Building Products has been proudly representing Kane Screens and Sterling Dula manufactured goods for nearly two decades. In April 1994, just three months subsequent to Preferred Building Products’ grand opening, Wayne Orsan and Kane Screens teamed up to offer window security products to potential customers in the Northern Illinois area. Shortly after Kane Manufacturing’s acquisition of Sterling Dula Aluminum Railings in the early 2000’s, Orsan made the bold - yet worthwhile - decision to withdraw involvement from aluminum windows in an effort to focus additional time on KaneSterling products. Together, the KaneSterling group and PBP established a common goal: to offer the highest quality products with the best value to the customer.
An experienced member of the AEC community, Wayne Orsan has developed a trained eye when identifying new market segments for various KaneSterling products.
“Colleges, universities and hospitals are always looking to improve the security levels of their facilities, since they have a responsibility to provide a safe environment for the residents and/or patients.”
Orsan also presented some surprising news regarding the railing division of his business and warns owners of the hazards of investing in lower-quality railing products.
“We have completed a number of large railing replacement projects over the past few years. While many of these were to replace deteriorated steel railings, several of these projects were to replace aluminum railings manufactured by other companies, that were less than five years old,” said Orsan. “This is where choosing a quality product by KaneSterling up front can eliminate costly replacement in the future.”
Today, Preferred Building Products continues to represent KaneSterling products such as Sterling Dula Aluminum Railings, Kane Security Screens, living wall system Eco Screen by Kane and Hurri-Kane Storm Barriers. PBP provides service to customers in Northern Illinois including Chicago, and Southern Wisconsin including Milwaukee and Madison.
