TPGTEX is an experienced labeling and solutions provider of all aspects of AutomaticIdentification and Data Collection (AIDC). With over 20 years experience in the Hazardous, Industrial and Commercial Labeling business, their client list includes both large corporations and small companies alike.
Orit and Robert have been working together – running their business for 7 years now. They have 4 kids and work from their home offices. They have 2 offices at home.
The Pennington’s met in another place ( a company that is no longer in business). He was the boss and she was a help desk technician. It is the second marriage for both of them.
Like most couples that work together the Pennington’s basically spend 24 hours a day; 7 days a week together and neither one of them would have it any other way. After 7 years they still love what they do, love each other more every day and they are doing well in our small business.
Orit and Robert run their business with three distinct philosophies in mind:
1. The clients needs come first: TPGTEX is committed to focusing on the clients needs. They will only recommend solutions that fit a business’ budget, timeframe and requirements. Over the years they have saved thousands of dollars for their customers by insuring that they only get the barcode and labeling software, scanners and labels they actually needed.
2. Education and Training: The Pennington’s strongly believe in educating their customers, empowering them to solve basic problems on their own, without the need to call for support every time they experience a problem. The company’s training is customized to the skill level and knowledge of each customer and each user.
3. Implementation: Implementation should be easy and not a complicated process. TPGTEX strongly believes that there is no “One-Size-Fits-All”, an approach so common in the labeling industry. The company prepares the ground work with the customer, so when the time comes to install – the client company is ready.
