PRIMUS VALUE-ADDED SERVICESSite-Kittingsaves you time, money andpounding headachesRob Menees, Primus Regional Sales ManagerIt’s 2:47 p.m. on a Tuesday afternoon andyou have called back to your warehouseguy three times in the past 25 minutes,asking him, “Did the ice bridge show up?”But that is only after you went throughthe exact same exercise at 10:36 a.m.asking about the status of the whereaboutsof angle adapters and buss barsfrom a different vendor. Scenario sound familiar? Has thishappened to you? Odds are it has.THE FACTSIt’s tempting to get an ice bridge from onesupplier, because it is $25 cheaper thangetting from another guy. It also lookedpromising because that box of angleadapters saved you $0.50 per box fromone vendor and the buss bars… you gotthem from the same place, “just because.”Project management can often be difficultenough on its own without having toadd complications of material supply intothe mix. That’s where Primus comes in.We’re experts at what we do, you are expertsat what you do.Can we promise you we will alwaysbe less expensive than the next guy onevery item? No, we cannot; I’d venture toguess no one can legitimately make thatclaim – but you will find Primus to bevery competitive. And price… ah…price… the price of the materials up frontis just a small part of the picture.THE BENEFITSSite kitting is where Primus excels, andbegins to make your life easier. Havingcompetitive prices across the board, youwill find that after it is all said and done,higher on some and lower on others (fromother competitors) it will average out, andyou will have the benefit of one tidy package,from one place, all ready to be pickedup by a crew and taken to a job site.It goes beyond just site kitting. Insimplistic terms, it is what you are visualizing.All materials required for one site,placed in boxes, stacked on a pallet, steelbundled, all shipped together. We will kit,bundle, label and ship complete productkits directly to your site; one pallet, onedelivery, one less headache.You will find Primus sales people tobe consistent with the expression, “A salesperson should have two ears and onemouth.” We listen to what you say, andwhat you want. Special labeling requests,pack specific parts in a certain way, labelson all boxes or just the skid, whatever youwant, is what we will do.We can process multiple site ordersfor you and we can bundle a few sites togetheron one pallet (keeping the materialsseparated or course), or we can have eachorder to its own pallet. It can be as complexas you want it to be, or as simple, it isyour choice. We are here to help.Let Primus site kit your projects foryou while you enjoy savings by not havingto UPS, FEDEX and freight materials infrom multiple vendors, where the unitprice savings you initially saved quicklyevaporate in the shipping costs.And trust me… your warehouseworker will thank you for not bird-dogginghim six times throughout the day askingwhere is this and where is that! Yourcrews will thank you for being able to rollin, pick up a pallet of materials and a bundleof steel and to the job site they can go.Be sure to ask your Primus representativenext time you are speaking to him orher about special needs you might have, orpackaging ideas that can make your lifeeasier and your jobs more streamlined.Remember…two ears, one mouth -we’re here to listen to what you want andto ask questions to make sure it is doneright.7

Aluminum Ladder Tray ComponentsAndrew SolutionsAndrew Solution’s new Aluminum Ladder Tray series offersan esthetically pleasing solution for concealing multipleruns of coaxial cable in roof-top applications and is nowavailable at Primus. A full line of 4" depth straight sections, 45°and 90° bends, t sections, and covers in 12", 18", and 24" widthsare available. Some of Andrew Solution’s new Aluminum LadderTray series design improvements include utilizing a “hat rung”that provides a better cable bearing surface than the “flattened toptube rung” that is frequently seen.The increased surface area on the rung allows for less indentationof the coaxial cables being run. Andrew’s “hat rungs” arealso welded to the side channels of the ladder tray components toprovide remarkable support unlike most trays that use rivets orswedge locking rungs. They also use a “flange-in” orientation ofthe structural “C” channel siderail allowing for a smaller overallwidth of cable ladder. • Welded designFeatures:This smaller overall width • Greater cable bearing surfaceallows the company’s cable • Flange-in orientationladder series to be used in • Nema Class 12Atighter applications.
