During the summer of 1973 I took my first job in the fastener industry. My how time flies! Over the years I have witnessed some incredible changes in how buyers or purchasing agents conduct relations with their suppliers.
When I began making sales calls account managers would make normal visitations by “showing up” at an appointed day and time. It was not unusual for me to sit in a customer’s lobby for hours. While there, I visited with my peers, or more importantly, my competitors. We had a lot of time on our hands. We told each other jokes, shared newspapers, and we went to lunch and dinner with each other. We were a band of brothers.
