“Everything generally ships the same day. In our industry I need everything yesterday. They’ve always been able to accommodate me in a timely manner.” — Todd Sayles, General Manager

Vaprox discovers better controls at much better prices with c3

When Todd Sayles, General Manager of Vaprox, first joined the company, they were already using c3controls. “Tom Hinkel, the founder and managing member of the company and an enthusiast for research who spends many sleepless nights always looking for better parts at better prices for our product designs, probably discovered c3controls,” Sayles stated.

Before using c3controls, the products they were using in their Vapor Control Solutions had a lot of issues and often had to be replaced out in the field. Vaprox found that c3controls offered an extensive line of products with superior performance at a better price — many of which Vaprox has since used on every piece of equipment they manufacture. Now, with the exception of the temperature monitoring modules and transformers, everything in a Vaprox control panel are c3 products.

"It's almost a one stop shop as far as circuit breakers, pilot devices, relays, contactors, starters, and terminal blocks are concerned.” — Todd Sayles, General Manager

Customer first attitude from c3controls works for Vaprox

Vaprox appreciates the direct manufacturer relationship they have with c3controls. They expressed that it has been a bonus knowing that everyone at c3 — whether in sales or manufacturing — will always respond promptly and address their concerns immediately.

They also know that when Vaprox designs a new product application, c3controls will do the research to see where c3 products might fit into that new application. The Vaprox product development team knows that if the need arises, c3 is even willing to start manufacturing a custom product specifically for them.

“c3 has provided a plethora of products. Everything fits in our control panel perfectly. It’s a no-brainer.” — Todd Sayles, General Manager

Ease of purchasing and follow-up support

The company is also very satisfied with the ordering process offered by c3controls. Todd currently keeps a list of everything that Vaprox buys from c3controls on his wall for quick reference. He will generally just send an email when he needs to place an order and always gets a quick response. When faced with fast lead times, he has found that he can call c3controls’ customer service department and they will ship anywhere in the United States — usually the same day.

Vaprox is also confident that if they ever receive the wrong part, c3controls will have the correct part delivered to them in a matter of 24 hours with just one phone call. Todd recounted a time when he had ordered the wrong part and c3 sent him an RMA immediately. He returned the wrong part — and before c3 received it, Todd had already received the new part.

“I feel like c3controls cares about their customers and about their products. They care about getting products out to me when I need them and they never fail me.” — Todd Sayles, General Manager

Vaprox relies on the c3 lifetime warranty

Vaprox values the ability to build the c3controls lifetime warranty into their own products. Although they haven’t had a c3 product fail, Vaprox equipment is exposed to adverse conditions in the oil fields in the middle of the desert with dust, dirt, and heavy equipment machinery — so knowing they can offer replacement of the controls is a unique advantage they are able to pass on to their clients.

Vaprox is also pleased with the advantage pricing c3controls offers — which is a buying partnership that can save them up to 40%.

“In the last four years they haven’t let me down one time. I think they take care of their customers and care about getting product shipped in a timely manner.” — Todd Sayles, General Manager

Vaprox would recommend c3 — to anyone but their competition

Sayles said Vaprox would definitely recommend c3controls to other companies — but not to their competition due to the extremely competitive nature of their business. He stated that if there was a company in another field he felt could benefit from using c3controls products, he would definitely recommend them.
