Icon Machine Tool, Inc. is owned by Jeff Hall (western Washington) and Shane Stufflebean (western Missouri) and was founded in July 2001. Prior to the inception of Icon, Jeff and Shane worked with another TRUMPF distributor for five years. Icon Machine Tool, Inc. provides new and used equipment to the metal fabrication industry, including the automotive, agriculture, construction, and aerospace industries. Icon began by covering the states of Missouri, Arkansas, Kansas, Oklahoma, and southern Illinois. Icon’s business plan focuses solely on the fabrication industry. With that in mind, Icon built relationships with only the best suppliers of fabrication machine tools such as TRUMPF (beginning in 2003), Peddinghaus, Marvel Saws, TECHNI Waterjet, Scotchman, Ercolina, and others.
After a few years of incredible growth, Icon was approached by TRUMPF to expand into the Chicago and Iowa markets. Icon enthusiastically accepted TRUMPF’s offer and all of our manufacturers also expanded Icon’s territory. Today, the Chicago market is one of Icon’s top growth areas.
In late 2013, Icon and TRUMPF expanded their partnership to include the Pacific Northwest. Icon Machine Tool is now the exclusive TRUMPF representative in the states of Washington, Oregon, and Idaho.
How has Icon been so successful?
“We understand our customers’ world” says Jeff Hall, Principal of Icon Machine Tool. “Not only do we understand the capabilities of our equipment, we understand why our customers need a particular machine or feature. We believe our job is half finished when we get the purchase order from a customer. With lasers, for example, we help our customers with all aspects of their purchase, from machine layout, setting up training, talking with gas suppliers, to helping their sales team sell the new technology to their customers. Our customer’s success is our success. Our goal is to make our customers as competitive as they can be.”
In addition, Icon Machine Tool holds several educational events each year, including factory tours of TRUMPF in both Farmington, CT and Germany. When new technology arrives on the market, such as the Fiber delivered lasers, Icon offers local technical seminars (“Lunch and Learn” events) so customers can quickly get up to speed when they are considering a new technology.
Icon has received numerous prestigious sales awards from TRUMPF (only two are awarded each year) in 2005, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2012, and 2013, 2014, including “#1 Distributor in North America in 2008 and 2013”.
Each of our sales engineers has received training and earned the TruRep Certification from TRUMPF’s machine tools group. Icon sales engineers have also received training and certification from the TRUMPF TruMark group.
We look forward to the opportunity to learn more about your business so we can help you grow and become more competitive in the future. We also look forward to making new friends and building customer relationships in the Pacific Northwest.
