Both the groups use Flagstar Cos Inc high performance adhesives while the business is not just included in the production of these adhesives but also markets them to these customer groups. We would be focusing on the customers of instant adhesives for this analysis because the market for the latter has a lower potential for Flagstar Cos Inc compared to that of immediate adhesives.
The total market for immediate adhesives is roughly 890,000 in the United States in 1978 which covers both client groups which have actually been determined earlier.If we look at a breakdown of Flagstar Cos Inc potential market or client groups, we can see that the business sells to OEMs (Original Devices Makers), Do-it-Yourself consumers, repair and overhauling business (MRO) and manufacturers handling items made of leather, wood, metal and plastic.

Nevertheless, the customer is not price sensitive or brand mindful so launching a low priced dispenser under Flagstar Cos Inc name is not a recommended choice.
Flagstar Cos Inc is not just a maker of adhesives but takes pleasure in market management in the instantaneous adhesive industry. The company has its own experienced and competent sales force which includes value to sales by training the company's network of 250 distributors for helping with the sale of adhesives.
Core proficiencies are not restricted to adhesive production just as Flagstar Cos Inc also focuses on making adhesive giving equipment to facilitate making use of its products. This dual production method gives Flagstar Cos Inc an edge over competitors since none of the rivals of giving devices makes immediate adhesives. Furthermore, none of these competitors sells straight to the customer either and utilizes suppliers for connecting to clients. While we are looking at the strengths of Flagstar Cos Inc, it is necessary to highlight the business's weaknesses also.
The business's sales personnel is competent in training distributors, the truth remains that the sales team is not trained in selling devices so there is a possibility of relying greatly on suppliers when promoting adhesive devices. It should likewise be noted that the distributors are revealing reluctance when it comes to offering devices that requires servicing which increases the difficulties of offering equipment under a specific brand name.

There is another possible risk which could reduce Flagstar Cos Inc earnings if Case Study Help is released under the company's trademark name. The truth that $175000 has actually been spent in promoting SuperBonder suggests that it is not a good time for introducing a dispenser which can highlight the reality that SuperBonder can get logged and Case Study Help is the anti-clogging solution for the immediate adhesive.
Additionally, if we take a look at the marketplace in general, the adhesives market does not show brand name orientation or cost consciousness which gives us two additional factors for not releasing a low priced item under the business's brand name.
