The Billionaire’s Guide On DIS-TRAN Steel’s Alliance Partners That Will Get You Rich.

Okay, maybe not RICH but Powerlinx[1] recently conducted a study and the results concluded that approximately 66 percent of senior level executives believe that the main benefit of business alliances are increased revenue. I would include the benefit of reduced overall cost of doing business. The study conducted by Powerlinx also revealed that “strategic partnerships are increasingly becoming a vital element of businesses’ corporate growth strategies with executives setting aside 20 percent of their assets or more to developing and maintaining partnerships.” DIS-TRAN Steel offers Value Added Services for its Alliance Partners. We believe in clearly communicating with you during each step of the project and are dedicated to delivering top quality solutions and service. Communication is a vital part of managing production space schedules, project management, and shipping details for all of our customers.  Since DIS-TRAN Steel believes in the importance of communication, each of our Alliance Partners are assigned a personal “go-to” Alliance Coordinator whose main job will be to provide a seamless operation and allow you to relax and feel confident that the job will be completed. 


John Beshears, an Assistant Professor of Business Administration at Harvard Business school says that "When you see an alliance over here, and a solo firm over there, there's a good reason for that. That's because the alliance is probably particularly good for the investment projects it is pursuing, and the solo firm is probably particularly good for its projects."[3] Beshears is a firm believer that alliances are more efficient than solo firms. He goes on to add that "What that suggests to me is that the members of an alliance were able to learn something from their past experience and contribute that to achieve a better outcome.”[4] When choosing to partner with DIS-TRAN, let there be no doubt that you will receive the best possible delivery date, as well as the highest quality product and experience. Alliance Coordinators are committed to working around the clock each day in order to promptly answer emails and phone calls. Being loyal and committed to the relationship we built is essential for Alliance Coordinators. We are here for you and we are on your side.[5]

When becoming an Alliance Partner, you will experience many benefits: 

  • Ability to lock in production space ahead of time
  • Improved lead times
  • Real time scheduling and product tracking
  • Alliance Coordinator acting as your customer advocate
  • Potential for economies of scale
  • Lower TCO (total cost of ownership)

Make the decision today to take advantage of the capabilities provided by partnering with DIS-TRAN Steel. Our plant capacity is suitable for any size project needed, large or small. Schedules can also be expedited for small or medium projects if necessary when lead times are critical.[6] Have you decided what you want out of your partnership?

5 Reasons Why You Should Consider an Alliance Partnership

Posted by Brooke Barone on Mar 19, 2013 9:05:00 AM

Being a VIP, no matter the situation, is always a good feeling. Not only is it a feeling of importance and status, but it comes with perks that improve your overall experience. Getting to skip a line at a concert, getting the best seats in the house or experiencing top-notch service in a business venture are all aspects of being a VIP.

So what are some of the perks of being an Alliance Partner?

Well, for starters every detail of your project from start to finish is communicated directly to you, service is tailored to deliver top quality solutions and your needs are anticipated beforehand. Communication and information flow is enhanced by having a personal “go-to” Alliance Coordinator who provides a seamless operation, enabling you to relax and know that the job will get done, no matter the situation at hand.

Alliance Coordinators work with their partners on a day-to-day basis, even answering emails or phone calls at 10 p.m. on a Saturday night. It’s not just their job that they are doing; it’s being loyal to a relationship they built. They get to know you on a personal level and understand your needs and wants. They’re on your side, fighting to get you the best possible delivery date, paired with the highest quality product and experience. They are your customer advocate.

What to look for in an Alliance Partner?

You want to make sure the partner you choose has the knowledge, experience and longevity in the industry to meet your requirements as well as agreed upon lead times. Their capacity is also an important factor, along with their ability to have open communication both ways.

5 Reasons Why You Should Become an Alliance Partner

  1. You have the ability to lock in production space ahead of time.
  2. Improved lead times since there’s no need to issue a quote or approve pricing.
  3. Terms and conditions are already in place and no need to evaluate bids.
  4. A familiarity is developed and the Engineering staff can design specific standards for structures that are the most efficient and cost effective.
  5. You have a customer advocate dedicated to you and all your project needs.

Pricing for partnerships is negotiated and can be a combination of firm pricing, structure type pricing or estimated price per pound with final price known when the design is complete.
