What to Look for in a Spray Foam Equipment Distributor

By Kevin Malone

If you are in the market for new spray foam equipment, you are already aware of how much financial planning it takes to make a smart purchase. Choosing a spray foam equipment distributor with the right credentials and customer service is critical to protect you from hiccups that can disrupt your business.

A bad return policy or absence of a warranty for new equipment can be detrimental financially if you get stuck with a piece of faulty equipment. It is essential to find a reputable, honest, and knowledgeable distributor that can serve your practical business needs. Here is what to look for in a spray foam equipment distributor.

A Good Reputation

Look for online reviews and feedback from theBBB on how good the distributor is before forming a relationship. Since sprayfoam equipment is expensive, it is important to buy from an entity that isstable and stands by its promises. Be wary of new websites that have a shorthistory or places that cannot give you references. When you read reviews, checkfor verified loyal customers who have been thrilled with the service provided.

The BBB website should have 0 complaints or all resolved complaints with thorough explanations for how the customer was served.  The longer the business has been in operation, the better too. A new company is not as stable as one that has been in operation for over a decade. This information is easily found on the BBB website and is helpful when deciding how good the business is. Also, look for a rating of A+, like we do at Intech Equipment and Supply.


Buy from a spray foam distributor that will beable to disclose to you if you really need the equipment in question, or ifthere is a more economical option to suit your budget. Dishonest companies willpick an unnecessarily expensive product to make a quick profit, but good distributorswill guide you through the buying process with step-by-step questions aboutyour needs.

For example, if you are an entry-level residential contractor, there is no need for a PMC PHX-55 quite yet. You can save money by getting a well-performing entry-level machine like the Graco Reactor E-20 and spend less, which will match your income. Also, if there is vital equipment that can serve your needs the same way as a new item, a good company will present these options to you.

Industry Knowledge

When you purchase spray foam equipment,working with a distributor with a solid knowledge of the industry is vital. Ifthe distributor does not have staff that can answer your crucial questionsabout what to buy, then walk the other way. Getting the right spray foam equipmentis crucial in this industry where your specific applications can succeeddepending on what type of rig you customize.

don't follow bad advice and get a custom rigthat lacks the production volume you need to for an average day, but insteadtalk to someone whose boots have been on the ground on a spray foam work site.At Intech Equipment and Supply, we are here for you, and we have many people onour team who can tell you what they would use first-hand for your specificspray foam needs.

Speedy Service

Lastly, it can be frustrating to wait for yourequipment when the time is ticking. Maybe you needed to start a projectyesterday or your main proportioner stopped working mid-project. Can you wait 7days or longer for a new machine to arrive? Imagine the loss of time and moneydue to this kind of situation. But if you choose a distributor that haswarehouses around the country, you can get your desperately needed equipment in1 to 2 days, and sometimes even the same day with rushed shipping!
