The value of an independent manufacturer’s sales agency

The team is always stronger than the sum of its parts. An independent agency combines the capabilities and careers of multiple professionals to work for you. The team leverages each other’s technical knowledge, applications experience, relationships, and business insights to offer more than any single territory manager. A sales agency offloads the “hidden costs” of managing and supporting a field sales force like leadership/management, coaching & development, Human Resources & Benefits, I.T. tools and support, and territory expense budgets. An independent agency sells a solution of complementary products making it streamlined for customers and manufacturers to do business.

Design Assistance

TPG is a resource throughout the life cycle of your design.  Early in the design phase, we bring application support and general information on the technologies we offer.


As the designs are finalized, we are the interface to manufacturer’s engineering and production departments to assure products are supplied to your specifications and on time.

Supply Chain Management

Later, as a valued supplier, we help you manage your supply chain issues including lead times, pricing and product updates or changes.
