O'Connor Sales, Inc.

What is a Manufacturer's Rep?

It's a sales organization, a free agent who generally handles product lines for numerous companies of a certain industry,  segment and/or region. Manufacturer's Reps can increase your company's sales while giving you the freedom to focus on other areas of your business. Manufacturer's reps can be your company's first step into a bigger market. Sometimes, business owners take the position that no one can sell their product better than they can. Don't limit yourself with this type of thinking. Your enthusiasm and knowledge can be contagious and working with the right team can make your business that much more successful.
