3 Pillars of Customer Commitment
M-C’s dedicated team of engineers are continuously researching and testing state-of-the-art ideas to build the world’s best operating grain dryers. Many in-house technological developments, such as remote dryer monitoring (M-C Trax), and research and development projects working with industrial non-profit organizations like the Propane Education Resource Council (PERC), led to the development of a new fuel efficient dryer line, like M-C’s Trilogy Series grain dryer line. These are just a couple examples of M-C’s forward thinking that are meeting the needs of producers worldwide. M-C’s focus on research and development and field testing give M-C valuable feedback from actual producers using the equipment for the grain they are harvesting. Customers can have confidence that these innovative products are proven performers before they ever hit the commercial market.
We are the grain dryer experts with our energies focused on manufacturing grain dryers. M-C has some of the most loyal dealers and long time customers in the industry. This comes from a dedicated team of employees who consistently focus on developing a highly trained independent dealer network and who focus on building the highest quality constructed grain dryer in the industry at a reasonable price. We are the “Grain Dryer Experts.”
M-C’s quality-driven production teams are dedicated to fulfilling the needs of producers and commercial operations by building long lasting equipment that is easy to operate. Research, development, and testing is the hallmark of every M-C product – ensuring all equipment meets the high standards of quality and dependability established by our founder, B.C. “Matt” Mathews.
The Competitive Edge
Listening to farmers and commercial operators from the U.S. and around the world has given Mathews Company (M-C) a competitive edge in manufacturing. “Make it easy to operate, make it safe and make it last” has been a long time belief by our founder, B.C. “Matt” Mathews, and is still the priority today.
The expanded testing program of new products puts dryers onto farms throughout the Midwest. M-C’s engineering staff visit the sites, conduct tests and gather data from the machines, as well as talk one on one with the producers to get their opinions on how the dryer runs; is it not only living up to expectations, but exceeding their expectations. They provide valuable insight on things we can improve on the machine before releasing the new dryers on a commercial-wide basis. M-C’s research and development testing is quickly becoming the attribute that sets us apart in the industry.
We are not trying to do it all, but rather, we focus on building the best grain dryer in the industry, period. We take pride in the fact that many of our customers have purchased multiple dryers from us over the years. With decades of production and distribution, there are literally thousands of M-C Dryers in operation around the world, many dryers 20+ years old and still operating. This long time history of focusing on grain dryers, coupled with the knowledge gained from customer feedback, gives Mathews Company insight into the grain dryer business to which few others can compare.
Factory Trained Dealers
Annual Sales Training Program
Dealers also attend yearly sales training that introduces them to new M-C products and provides them the detailed information and the tools they need in order to effectively match the right product for a prospective customer’s operation. M-C dealers work closely with their regional sales manager to keep on top of the latest developments and available sales programs.
For nearly 60 years, we have been growing our business with the help of dedicated independent authorized dealerships that reach both domestic and global grain producers and commercial elevators.
Mathews Company is dedicated to helping dealers confidently sell and service M-C products. Each year, M-C provides dealers an intense technical training program called M-C University. Dealers choose classes based on three different curriculum levels that include: Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced levels of dryer service. Classes cover every aspect of grain dryer service from the basic “How Grain Dries” to advanced hands-on troubleshooting scenarios performed at M-C’s own R&D training farm. The recent redesign and expansion of this program has proven to be very beneficial to the customer who benefits by having a very knowledgeable local dealer who can provide needed service during the critical harvest season.
The Mark of Excellence Dealer Program is a select group of proven service-oriented and motivated M-C Dealers. The Mark of Excellence Program has a rigorous qualification program that dealers must complete each year in order to receive M-C’s highest dealer designation. Prospective customers and current customers can feel confident that they are working with reputable dealers that have the expertise and training to sell and service M-C grain dryers, and who have gone above and beyond, time and again for their customers.
