    ThyssenKrupp Access phases out manufacturing in U.S.

    Last updated 4 years ago

    Important Operations Announcement

    ThyssenKrupp Access recently announced changes to its U.S. operations—changes that will fundamentally impact your role as a ThyssenKrupp Access dealer. Starting August 22, 2012, manufacturing of ThyssenKrupp Access products will be phased out during the next 60–90 days, with administration and other corporate services concluding by the end of 2012.

    These changes were brought about by a combination of slow economy, sluggish sales, and lingering manufacturing issues.

    Understandably, the question likely on your mind is: What will this mean for my business?

    We've worked to develop a strategy to assist our dealers with the phase-out and will keep you informed of any developments over the coming months. What the changes mean for you immediately include the following:

    1. ThyssenKrupp Access will continue to manufacture and deliver on current and backlogged orders for the next several months.
    2. We strongly urge you to get your final orders in by August 23, 2012 so that we may manage our backlog and have adequate staffing accordingly.
    3. Understandably lead times may fluctuate due to this difficult announcement.
    4. We will continue to honor warranty and parts commitments associated with all accepted orders and are currently identifying the best solution to administer this going forward.
    5. As it becomes available, additional information will come directly from ThyssenKrupp Access or through your Regional Sales Manager, including instructions regarding payment for current and backlogged orders and new accepted orders and your discontinuation of use of ThyssenKrupp Access’s sales literature and promotional materials.


    Finally, let us thank you for your efforts in representing the ThyssenKrupp Access brand. While the closure is unfortunate, indeed, we cannot overstate the value you and other dealers brought—and continue to bring—to our company and your customers.

    Please feel free to contact your Regional Sales Manager with any specific questions, or you may contact either of us directly at (816) 767-5422. We will continue to serve you as best we can through the closure.

    Be Who You Are!

    Be who you are! This statement applies to your personal life and professional life. We all know people who pretend to be something they are not, and most of the time they are not much fun to be around and we try to avoid them. Businesses, just like people, tend to be better liked when they are who they are, through and through. A business that tries to be something it is not is perceived in much the same way; avoidance. Know what you do, how you do it and then do it. Don’t try to be all things to all people, because you can’t, and you will not be the best that you can be. “Be Who You Are and Be Proud of That”.

    When you buy from a mom or pop business,
    you are not helping a CEO buy a third vacation home.

    You are helping a little girl get dance lessons,
    a little boy get his team jersey,
    a mom or dad put food on the table,
    a family pay a mortgage, or a student pay for college.

    Our customers are our shareholders and they
    are the ones we strive to make happy.

    Thank you for supporting small businesses!
