Industrial Mill & Maintenance Supply Sheds Cutting-Tool-Only Identity And Promotes Full-line Offering...With Astounding Results!

Rivet|MRO developed the theme FROM THE SPINDLE to SUPPLIES to SAFETY to help Industrial Mill & Maintenance Supply dispel the impression that they only sold cutting tools.

The box, which leveraged co-op marketing funds from multiple suppliers to amplify its impact, generated incredible results:

  • 20 new customers

  • $175,000+ in new business

  • And more than a 35:1 Return on Investment!

The box was used to break into new accounts and was also leveraged as a hyper-effective cross-selling tool. IMM reps delivered the boxes both in-person and via mail/UPS.

Summer Samples Score Sizzling Sales!

“Our summer product sample boxes dramatically out-performed our expectations. In the first month after we delivered the boxes, Niagara bottled water saw a 456% spike in sales. Sqwincher was up more than 20%. And Pickle juice saw a 480% increase—and we would have sold more if we’d had access to more inventory!”

Additionally, we agreed to stock two new radians products and we launched them via the sample box. We sold more than 550 units and are still taking orders. In the first month our return on investment has exceeded 20:1.

Mid-State used the boxes for both cross-selling existing customers and as door-openers for prospects. They worked great for both!
