Kondex Survey Reveals
Company & Product Strengths

Areas of Improvement Being Targeted

Recently Kondex sent out an e-survey asking customers, “How are we doing at serving your needs?” Using 12 specific questions focused on critical areas of our performance, we found that overall, customers are happy with our products and service.

The goal of the survey, though, was to identify any areas needing improvement…and we found a few!  We’re dedicated to making those improvements and have addressed a few key areas already.

We’d like to thank you all for responding – we appreciate your time and effort. Your input helps us continue to provide the best quality products with incredible service!

Here’s a look at the initial survey results. For statements 1 through 10, we asked you to identify how strongly you agree or disagree; question 11 asked you how likely you are to recommend us to a friend.

  • 97% “strongly agree” or “agree”


2: “We receive timely and appropriate responses to Request For Quotes (RFQ's) from Kondex.”

  • 96% “strongly agree” or “agree”

The comments we received in this last question show that our customers want things fast – we understand that! This is our greatest area of opportunity and you can believe that we’re making the right changes for improvements in this area.

A few things we’ve done already:

  • Hired additional resources in Customer Service, Engineering & Metallurgy. This will help us respond in the most timely way to your needs and requests, expedite quotes more quickly and take on more capacity in our Metallurgy Lab
  • Instituted an on-going Continuous Improvement Program to remove costs from our products
  • We are working more closely with customer’s forecasts to ensure your demands are met
