Relationships + Respect = Equipment Triangle
AEMP coined the phrase Equipment Triangle in 1995. It is the cornerstone of the association’s philosophy towards the continuing relationship between the End User, Distributor, and OEM/Supplier in the life cycle of a piece of heavy equipment or product. The Equipment Triangle Philosophy serves to remind us that in this multi-tiered relationship everyone is entitled to receive the respect they deserve, and all transactions are to be win-win for all concerned. Together with AEMPs Standards of Ethical Conduct, it creates a level playing field for all side of the triangle. This means:
From the end user’s perspective the Equipment Triangle represents the OEM/distributor product support programs that enable the end user to achieve the highest possible availability at the Slowest life cycle cost.
From the distributor’s perspective the Equipment Triangle represents the opportunity for a sustained business relationship, differentiating themselves through problem solving and value added product support services, ensuring that customers achieve the highest possible availability at the lowest life cycle cost.
From the OEM/Supplier’s perspective the Equipment Triangle relationship rests upon a foundation of trust and mutual respect for each party’s proprietary information. In such a relationship, open and honest communications gives the OEM a unique opportunity to understand the end-user’s needs and thus develop products and support programs that are best suited to meet those needs, thereby gaining or strengthening competitive advantage for all three sides of the triangle.
