SWOT before you set that goal! Last month I wrote a column on measurements, and we discussed how important they were especially when treading through difficult times. Good times cover a multitude of sins, and in the intoxication of success we can, many times, find ourselves unhitching from the guideposts that got us there in the first place. There is nothing sexy about forecasting and planning. Many of us are high spirited horses and would rather adopt the “damn the torpedoes, full speed ahead” mentality, than to slog through the tedious duty of crunching the numbers, setting a hard target, and strategizing a way to get there. As discussed last month, there are three steps to measuring and managing your departments to optimum performance. The first is assessment. You have to know what is, if you want to know what can be. Now that we have discussed the tools and methods to ascertain your position on the map, we can move on to the second step, which consists of proper goal setting. The third step is to develop action plans and initiatives to move you toward those goals. Using these three steps to chart the course answers the three questions that all of your managers and most of your employees instinctively want to know: Where are we? (Addressed)

Where are we going? (Goalsetting) How are we going to get there? (Action plans and initiatives) Goalsetting How do you set goals in your dealership? Do you have a repeatable proven formula? Does the formula change when the marketplace changes? Does it address your competitors? Does it address your staffing? Is it based on mathematics, or on gut feelings? Who decides if it’s right? What adjustments can you make if you are not going to achieve the goals? English aphorist Ashleigh Brilliant once said: “To be sure of hitting the target, shoot first, and call whatever you hit the target.” This quote is certainly meant to be a tongue in cheek assessment of the goalsetting process, but I have observed that in the absence of a well-defined strategic plan, dealers many times move the target in front of the results, instead of moving the results to meet the target. Let’s talk about starting the goalsetting process by first assessing the environment and infrastructure in which you operate. Everyone would love to double their sales! But before you can forecast such a lofty goal, you have to answer two important questions. The first is: Do we have the marketplace to meet that goal? Is there enough business available to meet that goal, and what is the likelihood that we will be successful in garnering enough of it to meet the objective? The second question is: Do we have the infrastructure to meet that goal? The best laid war plan falls flat without adequate ammunition, boots on the ground, and support mechanisms in place that can handle the extra load. I always recommend to everyone that is developing any type of meaningful goal setting endeavor, that they start the process by doing a SWOT analysis. For the uninitiated…. SWOT, is the acronym for the following: • Strengths • Weaknesses • Opportunities • Threats Why is this important? Simply because the process tends to draw you and your team from “theory” to “reality.” A SWOT analysis demands detail. Policies, data and actions need to be specified. Strengths – This defines your dealerships value proposition to the marketplace. As your dealership evolves, this value will evolve. It’s vitally important to do this at least every year (if not semi-annually). Did you add a new line? Are there warranty opportunities you may have this year that you did not have last year? What is the status of your training, and knowledge base of your road crew? Have you entered new markets? Did you invest in new tools? Do you have access to new parts? These are all questions that help build your profile of strength. Understanding your

Aftermarket strengths will help you identify the right opportunities later in the process. Weaknesses – What are we doing now that we need to stop doing? These items may be easier to ascertain, because they are normally accompanied by pain! It’s amazing however how dealers tend to not want to recognize where they are failing. Some of this is driven by long standing (and inefficient) practices. Other times it’s a matter of pride, not wanting to rock the boat, or trying to be “all things to all people.” If you set aside time however to have an honest chat with your people; and allow every operation, department and process to be put on the table (without reprisal), you will be amazed at how much of the closet you can clean out. This is painful…but it’s liberating! Opportunities – Now that you have identified your value proposition, and have decided what markets, or policies that you want to eliminate, you are ready to assess your opportunities. I think of assessing opportunities in three ways: Markets, targets and competitive advantages Markets - These are industries or groups of customers for which you have identified strengths that match well with customer needs. Make a hierarchy of customer markets to attack, based on your newly revised profile of strengths, and use this list to develop your plan to bring on new business. Targets – The problem I see with most target customer lists is that they are too long. You cannot target 25 customers. Customer targeting is not a shotgun proposition. On the contrary it takes a sniper rifle mentality. I will speak more about target customers when I cover strategic planning next month. Let me say for now, however, that your target list (per territory) should consist of no more than two entries. Competitive advantages – Sometimes your greatest opportunities is coming in behind one of your competitor’s failures. It’s important to have a sense of market intelligence within the dealership. Whether the competitive failure is on time delivery, parts pricing, parts stock or unreliable repairs, we need to be ready to illustrate how our strengths can better service the customer, and draft a plan to purposefully target these opportunities. Threats - Threats come in many forms, some are controllable and others are not. The one thing that threats have in common is this: They are not reality! They could happen, but it’s not inevitable that they will happen! This needs to be the guiding posture to this conversation. How can talking about existential threats help our cause? Simple. It addresses the 900 lb. gorilla in the room. It’s impossible to prepare for a threat that is not defined. Once defined, it’s easier to mitigate. The action plans we will talk about next month can and should be influenced by these threats. To give you one small example: Our dealership operates in the once parched Central Valley of California. Starting in 2012, a shortfall of precipitation left our state in the tenuous position of not having enough water. Between the environmental lobby, and our notorious governor, water resources in our state have been the subject of much conversation and consternation since this time. Farming interest were being sidelined by stronger and more politically powerful operatives. It’s rumored that Mark Twain famously said “Whiskey is for drinking; water is for fighting over.” 14

Aftermarket Whether properly attributed to Mr. Twain or not, truer words were never spoken. Since our inception, our business future, customer base and growth potential had always been tied to a strong agricultural marketplace. If water was not allocated to farmers, crops would go unplanted and orchards and vineyards across our valley would wither and die. Our fate was tethered to the success or failure of our farming customers. As a dealership, could we affect the water outcome? Unlikely. We could however hedge this threat by changing tactics. If orchards die, their only remaining value is in the standing wood. Prior to this time we had always focused our activities on selling and servicing “rolling” equipment. Power equipment was a business and market that we chose not to participate it. The threat of dying orchards, however, had a hand in changing that plan. We became power equipment dealers for two major brands that year. Adding chainsaws to our equipment lineup not only added an appropriate accoutrement to our farm equipment offering, it also put us in a position to address an eminent threat with the equipment needed to meet the possible challenge at hand. In the final analysis, a SWOT assessment helps you lay the groundwork for setting your final goals and strategic plans. It helps identify your tools, your talents and how they can both be applied to the marketplace. It pinpoints specific accounts that are important in meeting your revenue and profitability objectives. It addresses both competitive and


environmental threats and allows you to do some provisional planning. Alltech Battery Chargers ...

Bottom Line Garry Bartecki

Looking forward I don’t know about you but I find today’s financial markets quite confusing, which makes it the tougher trying to plan for the future. Quite frankly, I still suggest keeping planning strategies close to the vest because the “markets” could move either way for any number of reasons and thus impact your business either way. How quickly things change today has me shortening up the planning process into quarters, not years. I suggest that dealers should prepare a preliminary annual plan, but then spend more time on a detailed plan for next quarter, thus providing more flexibility to make changes as necessary. Not only is this quarterly process more flexible, it also forces you to take a hard look at the upcoming three months, probably a lot harder than you would have if you only have an annual plan. As an example of what is going on, let me relate an experience I recently had with a banker representing one of the major banks financing construction and material handling equipment. This banker attended the AED convention in January and said that he was booked solid for three full days and that every person he saw was very upbeat and enthusiastic. With 25 years’ experience in the equipment finance business he said he never experienced anything like it. Taking this a step further I would suggest this same exuberance shall carry over into the material handling business if, in fact, manufacturing is brought back to this country along with upgrades being made in the distribution/warehousing business. All in all a lot of people are expecting growth in 201718. That’s a good thing. Speaking of confusing, the talk about tax changes are enough to drive you to drink. Even the most experienced tax people I work with are shaking their heads about how all of this will work. Companies will still be required to report using GAAP, but it appears for tax purposes companies will be more on a cash basis (when you pay for it you write it off and when you collect it you it record as income). Keeping that in mind in the next paragraph they say LIFO will be retained, which is hard to understand if you write off your purchases when you buy them. In other words, this is no inventory to attach LIFO to. If you think what I just covered is confusing, just think about the border or territory tax. If you bring items in from out of the country to sell in the US you pay tax on it. If you send goods out of the country you don’t pay tax on them. Many dealers may not be directly involved with international trade but what about your customers and suppliers. How will this impact your business….something to think about. Add in talk about interest rate hikes, which are sure to come, and their impact on the dollar and we could be right back where we started since a stronger dollar will make imports cheaper and exports more expensive. Isn’t that just the opposite of the border tax impact discussed in the previous paragraph…..more to think about. And, as I mentioned in a previous column, many companies in the equipment distribution and rental business 22

April 2017

are taking steps to extend the useful life of their assets which in turn reduces Cap X purchases and softens any interest rate hike while increasing cash flow. If you didn’t see that column you can look up last month’s column on MHW’s website and look it over. As usual, comments are appreciated. After thinking about all these events scheduled to take place sometime in 2017, I go back to reaffirm my suggestion about adopting a quarterly planning process because as of today there are too many balls in the air to contend with to only have one plan that is probably 10 months old. One more thing for this month. As I was reviewing my accounting publications I came across an article titled “Figuring out transfer pricing: How to set terms of negotiation between departments.” Sounded kind of interesting even though transfer pricing usually has to do with tax planning… pushing profits to low tax environments. But in this case the discussion covered more than taxes by discussing the competing interests in the same company which if not balanced properly can have a negative impact on the company as a whole. I don’t know about you but this certainly sounds like every lift truck dealer I know where the parts and service departments sell to the sales and rental departments. So, what did we learn from the article: We know that department heads are often compensated based on departmental profit. Thus, we understand there is a conflict of interest regarding internal charges. And if pricing agreements can’t be put in place, it is possible the results may not be good for the business as a whole. Management has to be able to convince department heads that they can determine performance levels even if internal pricing is distorted. Management needs to explain reasoning for distorting internal pricing and basically get “buy-in” from the department head. Costing conflicts can be resolved by comparing the market price versus the internal price. When it comes down to labor and parts pricing it should be somewhat easy to determine the true cost and rate to use for best customers (which are basically your sales and rental departments). When part of a department head’s compensation is based on firm-level performance there may be a greater alignment between the department head and the company. Food for thought.

I annoy phone scammers This is hilarious, but maddening at the same time. I listened to a brief call with a guy trying to pull a computer scam on me. I love getting these calls since I get great joy out of screwing with them. This guy was obviously not cut out for this type of work. Out of all the calls I’ve played over the years, this may have been the funniest. It’s also maddening that this crap is still going on. Obviously, some people must be falling for it, since they still do it. Some are quite clever and sophisticated in their tactics. It’s maddening because every one of these calls contaminates the waters we all work in. Anyone who has been burned by a scam call becomes slightly more skeptical when they receive their next call from someone they don’t know. Which could be you. My approach is to play along with these sleazebags. Ask questions. See how far you can go with them without actually giving them personal information, and certainly not any financial or payment info. Waste their time. (It could be argued you are wasting yours. Personally, I look at is my entertainment time.) Piss them off. Lead them on to think they have a deal. If possible, see if you can earn enough

trust to get a phone number to call them back or have them email you something. There are ways to track down these idiots. I’ve had the email accounts of scammers closed down by contacting their provider and informing them of what’s going on. These low-lifes are criminals. And they are indirectly affecting your ability to have more success in your profession. What are your thoughts?

Hamilton Caster has mastered the key to longevity in business - a combination of innovation and consistency. This year, the Ohio-based manufacturer of casters, wheels, carts and trailers marks 110 years in business. Certain aspects of the operation remain the same as when it was founded in 1907. The business is located in Hamilton, Ohio with a decided focus on its roots in American manufacturing, the fourth generation of the founder’s descendants are heading up the company, and an emphasis on hard work and the manufacture of quality products continues. However, today there is a decidedly major focus on engineering as the company has been awarded three patents in the past two years. “My great-grandfather started the business out of his garage selling shoe rack casters,” said Mark Lippert, vice president of marketing, of founder John A. Weigel. In the following generation, Hamilton president Ralph Lippert wrote - “The history of this business could be summed up in just two words: hard work.” Currently, Mark Lippert and three other family members are in the fourth generation of company leaders, all having worked for the business for at least 20 years. “We do have a family atmosphere. It’s a fairly open environment, open culture,” Lippert said, explaining that this approach has helped provide stability and a low turnover rate.

After a start in the shoe rack caster business, Hamilton Caster eventually migrated to heavy industrial and large caster production during World War II. The changes the war necessitated proved helpful to the business, and the company has remained in the heavy caster sector ever since. A couple of years ago Hamilton designed and built four Colossus Casters with each caster rated for 100,000 lbs. “We play in the very high end of the industrial marketplace, our sweet spot is 1,000 pounds per caster and up. We also sell quite a few medium duty casters,” said Lippert, noting products seen at retailers like Lowes or Home Depot. Today, Hamilton Caster features two separate divisions; caster and wheel, and cart and trailer. Lean manufacturing is a key component of company operations, with a focus on constant, continuous improvement. “Lean is pervasive throughout our corporate culture” said Lippert, who said Hamilton Caster employs a lean manager to help achieve goals similar to the original Toyota lean manufacturing model. All of Hamilton Caster’s operation remains in Hamilton, and Lippert stressed the company’s commitment to American manufacturing. Dave Lippert, Hamilton Caster’s president, recently co-authored a book on the subject - “Bringing Jobs Back to the USA: Rebuilding America’s Manufacturing Through Reshoring.” Recently the company began leasing an additional 20,000 square feet of space off site to manufacture industrial trailers for hauling up to 50 tons. Hamilton Caster also has a history of innovative business practices. Long before Amazon’s two-day shipping guarantee became famous, Hamilton was employing a quick ship service. “My father came up with that plan in 1967 as a way to create a win-win situation to appease customers who wanted products sooner and to stabilize production flow,” Mark Lippert said. “When we didn’t have immediate customer orders, we could build orders for stock.” The program continues to this day, now offering sameday shipping on standard products, or about 85 percent of the Hamilton line. It is something customers have come to rely on. “I would say 75 or 80 percent are counting on that fast service,” said Lippert, noting supplying to maintenance or repair operations as a large segment in need of this kind of service. As delivery times shorten and other standards become more demanding, Hamilton Caster has shifted with them. The business is working on the installation of a new powder paint system. Hamilton’s entire forged steel product line will be powder painted starting this summer – and a website rebuild is in the works. “We will be publishing product test data on our website,” said Lippert, who added it will allow users to look up a caster, determine start-up force, maintenance force, load distribution or footprint. He said this will be a first in the industry. In the coming years, Lippert said Hamilton will continue to focus on the practices that have helped build a successful 110-year track record, while also growing in new ways.

Succession planning: It’s bigger on the inside Doctor Who is run like a business. On other scripted TV shows, when the actors age out of their roles or audiences get sick of looking at them, the show is cancelled. On Doctor Who, the producers simply replace the actors with new ones, as a company would swap out managers who retire (or are, uh, “asked” to retire). The ingenious story device that allows for actor replacement on DW is called regeneration, a trick in which a mortally wounded Doctor can regenerate his body into a healthy new one with a different face, voice and personality. It worked great in 1966 when star William Hartnell had to leave the series unexpectedly to be replaced by Patrick Troughton, and it will work great in December of this year when current Doctor Peter Capaldi takes his final bow. Indeed, fans of the long-running British television series learned this week that Capaldi, the twelfth person to play the iconic part (as a series regular), is making way for a new actor to step into the TARDIS, the Doctor’s temperamental time machine that appears as a 1960s-era police phone box yet sports an infinitely vast interior. “It’s bigger on the inside!” his passengers exclaim when stepping on board the first time, the Doctor Who equivalent of the Star Wars franchise’s recurring line, “I’ve got a bad feeling about this.” Per the show, the Doctor is a renegade alien from the planet Gallifrey, which means his ability to regenerate requires no explanation. The actor who plays him (or her, if the BBC decides to go in that direction this time) has no such skill. So you can bet the BBC keeps a short list of potential replacement performers under lock and key, monitors each actor’s availability, and keeps a hotline open to their respective talent agencies. That’s another way Doctor Who is like a business … at least a well-run business with a succession plan in place, data available on

top performers, and developmental programs to prepare the next generation of leaders for growing market share and improving profit margins. The premise of Doctor Who has the 2000-year-old Time Lord travelling through space and time alongside his latest companion (typically a young, attractive woman. Go figure) and relying on his exceptional wits to overcome all manner of nefarious aliens and malevolent robots. The Doctor has had occasion to take a companion billions of years into the future, when Earth is either a charred cinder or gone entirely. Which generally leaves the companion despondent and questioning the meaning of life, understandably to us but not to the Doctor, who struggles to understand human emotion. Now picture yourself taking a time machine into the future. Not billions of years but, say, 20. Not to see if intelligent alligators rule the universe (yet) but to see how your company is faring in a 2037 business environment. Perhaps there are two futures: an inspiring one that results from having implemented a meaningful succession program with good data analytics at its core, and another, far bleaker one that results from having put off the development of a succession plan because it seemed unimportant in the moment. Don’t worry! These are the shadows of things that may be, not the shadows of things that will … oops, wrong British time-travel story.

Sovella is now Treston Inc. Treston has been a European leader in workspace design since the late 1960s. In 2011, Sovella Group was acquired by Treston Group and the two companies joined forces. Since then, the North American branch, located in Canton, GA, has operated under the Sovella name. However, just as our customers seek to improve their work place efficiency, we also aim to operate more efficiently for our customers. Uniting under the Treston name will now allow us to provide the same high-quality products the industry has come to expect, with increased speed and flexibility. The over-all company structure will not change. However, operating under the Treston name, along with the new QuickShip product line, Treston will provide current and future customers with a faster lead time, and stronger customer support. The official change began January 1, 2017.

NEW Storage systems that save electricity Rising electricity costs and diminishing resources are creating a demand for energyefficient solutions in every industry. Logistics and distribution are no exception. For this reason, the sawing and storage specialist KASTO has developed an innovative energy recovery and storage concept for its automatic bar stock and sheet metal storage systems. It makes it possible to convert surplus kinetic energy into electricity and store it temporarily for later use as needed. This cuts operating and investment costs, and it reduces CO2 emissions. Energy recovery is now available as an option with all KASTO storage systems. The electric circuits for the drive shafts of the operating gantry crane (OGC) are connected through a DC link. Surplus kinetic energy, such as that produced in braking of the OGC or lowering of lifting gear, can be converted into electricity and fed back into the grid.

New aluminum torque limiting knurled knobs from J.W. Winco J.W. Winco, Inc., supplier of standard industrial machine components, announced it now offers GN 3663 aluminum torque limiting knurled knobs with steel threaded stud. The RoHS compliant torque limiting knobs are used when manually applied torque is to be limited. When turned clockwise, the torque mechanical system of the knurled knob triggers an "overengagement" as soon as the specified torque is reached. When tightening, this insures that maximum permissible torque is not exceeded. When turned counter-clockwise, loosening the knob mechanism, the mechanical system locks so that the torque is not limited. Torque necessary for release will always be transmitted properly. After removal of cover and loosening of the countersunk screw, insert with threaded stud can be dismantled, in addition, versions with inch size threaded are available upon request.

Pallet transfer cart moves pallets easily Verti-Lift introduces a heavy-duty transfer cart quickly and ergonomically moves pallets and other heavy components (up to 4000 capacity) within production environments. This custom-designed solution includes a gravity roller conveyor, a pallet retaining bar to secure the load during transport, and a manual foot-actuated “locking/docking arm” for convenient hands-free operation. The cart is fitted with heavy-duty swivel casters which allow movement in all directions, to easily maneuver it into proper position, and stand up to heavy loads. A hitch and pin arrangement for towing is included so that multiple units can be used together. This cart technology is ideal for moving wood, plastic and aluminum pallets, as well as shipping containers, equipment skids, component frames & bases, production equipment and more.

New Holland manufactures 250,000th skid steer loader New Holland Construction began skid steer manufacturing 45 years ago in its facility in Grand Island, NE. Skid Steer manufacturing eventually moved to Bellville, PA, and finally to a plant in Wichita, KS in 2002, where it is today. “We’re excited to celebrate New Holland’s milestone of assembling its 250,000th skid steer loader and its long and ongoing commitment to providing quality skid steer loader equipment,” said Bret Lieberman, Vice President of New Holland Agriculture North America. The L35, New Holland’s first skid steer loader, pioneered the use of a longer wheelbase for a smooth, steady ride for operator comfort and safety. New Holland also introduced ROPS/FOPS and boom lockouts for operator safety. Up until that safety innovation, all skid steer loaders were open-top designs, preventing the operator from being protected from falling material, loader arm pinch points, or machine rollover.

Replace fluorescent industrial lighting with energy-efficient LED lighting High efficiency, reliability and longer life span have triggered the rapid growth in LED lighting demand over conventional fluorescent technologies. However, the perceived high cost of replacing fluorescent luminaires has inhibited some industrial facilities from switching over their fluorescent luminaires to next generation LED, despite the potential for more than 50% reduction in energy expense. To help provide a simpler, more costeffective path from traditional fluorescent lighting to energy-saving LED, Appleton, a trusted Emerson brand, is pleased to announce the new FELED Series of non-metallic, explosion-proof linear LED luminaires engineered for harsh and hazardous industrial locations.

These new kits are designed for hard-to-treat spills, including formaldehyde, bodily fluids, mercury and battery acid. “Our Specialty Spill Kit line was created to align with the spill response needs of our customers,” says Courtney Bohman, global product manager for Brady SPC. “Based on customer requests and feedback, we developed this line with individualized solutions for the top four most common difficult spills that require unique components.” The contents of each of the four kits are provided in a re-usable, 6.5-gallon screw-top bucket that meets Department of Transportation (DOT) requirements.

Kardex Remstar bin handling solution designed for speed The new Kardex Remstar LR 35 is designed for fast retrieval making it the perfect fit for spare part and MRO inventory handling, which can be expensive. According to the Pareto principle, 80 percent of a company’s revenue is generated with just 20 percent of its inventory. In contrast to fast movers, medium and slow moving goods (often spare parts or MRO inventory) comprise a high percentage of process, storage, and picking costs. This is why it is essential for them to be stored efficiently, and available as quickly as possible when needed. The LR 35 Vertical Buffer Module is an innovative solution for cost-effective spare parts inventory management.
