The SEEMAC Model
SEEMAC is so much more than a distributor. We’re wood experts. In addition to quality wood products, we provide services, inventory management, and integrated solutions that solve your challenges, save you money, and exceed your expectations.
|Sales People||Wood experts with extensive knowledge of customers’ processes and mills' capabilities.||Wood generalists due to breadth of wood and non-wood products offered.|
|Products Offered||Specific products chosen and engineered to precisely fit each customer’s unique needs.||Generic products designed to fit as many customers’ end uses as possible.|
|Customer Size||Small to large customers.||Small- to medium-sized customers.|
Targeted Facilities Inventory is tailored specifically to meet customer needs. Stored in “virtual” warehouses, near customer plant to reduce costs.
|Metro facilities. Typically in major metro areas. Inventory stored in warehouses to serve multiple customers from one location, not always near customer. Distributor owns/leases warehouses, forklifts, trucks, and employees. All these things increase the final price.|
|Overhead||Low overhead. SEEMAC has no fixed costs such as warehouse facilities, property, shipping personnel, or equipment.||Substantial overhead. Many fixed assets (see above) force distributors to have higher prices.|
|Pricing||Lowest possible pricing. Many factors keep SEEMAC pricing low—from low overhead to sales/inventory management efficiencies, to our volume purchasing power.||Higher pricing. In addition to prices driven up because of overhead, customers of distributors tend to be smaller. This means they can’t buy full truckloads and therefore pay higher prices for materials.|
