Jobst Inc Your Solutions ProviderA sales agency is a service organization. Unlike a manufacturer of products, we concentrate solely on building and maintaining relationships and the distribution of information to our customers. Our agency prospers when the relationships with principals and customers are sound, and the information and capabilities of each principal are applied to the needs of the customer. Jobst Incorporated commits its energy to finding and working with proven principals. The relationships must be long-term (many of our principals have been with us for more than 30 years) and rest on highly ethical and professional business practices. Honesty, mutual dependability, and reliability in service, product quality, and delivery are the key components to our successful sales effort. We are members of MANA (Manufacturers’ Agents National Association) and abide by their Code of Ethics. We are members of SPE (Society of Plastic Engineers) and the Rubber Division - ACS. Our customer is the real key to a successful agency. Each of our customers has specific needs. We provide the attention and service our customer needs through diligent service.
