Famous Ground Strap

Today, let’s discuss “Almost Famous” Ground Strap Quotes that didn’t quite make it. 

You may not have realized how prevalent of a role that Ground Straps have played in movies over the years. 

However, when it came time for filming, many lines changed prior to final cut. 

Unfortunately, in most cases Ground Straps were cut out of numerous classic movies. 

For example, are you familiar with this line: “Ground Straps? We ain’t got no Ground Straps! We don’t need no Ground Straps!”

~The Treasure of the Sierra Madre, 1948

For some unknown reason they changed the lines to say “badges” instead of Ground Straps

Obviously this is deeply disappointing and we are not exactly sure why these lines were changed. 

Well, as they say in the movies, the rest is history (at least it seems like they say that). 

In reality, we have an extensive list of our favorite movies……..that originally were meant to include Famous Ground Strap Quotes which unfortunately changed. 

A little Trivia for you…..can you name the movie from the quotes below….(which were all SUPPOSED to say “Ground Straps“)?

This past year has been extremely exciting for our company. Falconer Electronics recently joined the eCommerce party going on at Amazon.  

Why did we join the party? 

Due to popular demand from our eCommerce store, we decided to take the plunge and place our Ground Straps on Amazon.

However, to take a step back, let’s take a look at the path we took leading up to adding our Ground Straps on Amazon. 

In particular, demonstrating how a custom manufacturer converts a proprietary process into a proprietary product. 

Proprietary Process into a Proprietary Product 

Ground Strap Names

As a custom Ground Strap and Wire Harness Manufacturer since 1985, launching a proprietary product line stepped outside our typical course of business. 

We found out first hand, when an “old school” manufacturer tackles change by embracing new technology, dynamic results follow. 

In this case, converting our proprietary process of manufacturing ground straps into a proprietary product line, created a new focus for our company. 

Especially since offering our Ground Straps on the Falconer Electronics website opened new doors that we had no idea existed. 

First, we took a product that we manufacturer thousands upon thousands for OEM’s (original equipment manufacturers). 

It just made perfect sense to turn this proprietary process into a proprietary product. 

Everything was in place. 

For example, we had the tools, equipment and resources.

Additionally, our team possesses the experience, skills and knowledge. 

Furthermore, solid relationships with vendors certainly helps with pricing and product availability. 

Most importantly, all systems exist to continue scaling production on our Braided Ground Straps. 

As a result, Amazon seemed like the next logical step.

Amazon.

What is the first thing that comes to mind when you hear the word Amazon? 

Twenty years ago, you might have said a mighty river. A rain forest. Possibly, a natural wonder of the world. 

Today, your first thoughts when you hear the word Amazon most likely include convenience, an endless selection, free shipping and of course, a smiling box at your door step. 

With that in mind, the gargantuan success of Amazon.com might also make it a natural wonder of the world. Just by the sheer size of the company and the enormously high level of success. 

Consider this: According to Statista, Amazon surpasses 2 billion clicks per month. Yes, BILLION! 

That is insane!

Amazon serves as an incredible American entrepreneurial success story from its humble beginnings when it launched as one of the first eCommerce bookstores to the behemoth it is today. 

With $.51 of every eCommerce dollar going to Amazon, it made perfect sense (and cents) for us to create a presence on Amazon. 

We launched our Amazon store with 24 different types of Braided Ground Straps. 

The variety includes a mixture of 1/4″ and 1/2″ connectors: 

4″, 8″, 12″, 20″ 

  • Tinned Copper
  • 10 Gauge AWG
  • 53 Amps
  • Flat Width 1/2″

4″, 8″, 12″ 20″ 

  • Tinned Copper
  • 14 Gauge AWG
  • 32 Amps
  • Flat Width 1/4″

Benefits of Ground Straps from Falconer Electronics include: 

  • Made in USA 
  • Tinned copper 
  • Solder dipped ends 
  • Heavy Duty 
  • Manufacturing Ground Straps Since 1985

Ever deal with the Dreaded RFQ process? 

The RFQ (request for quote) process takes years off one’s life. At least, it sure seem like it. 

For example, let’s say you are working on a new product design. 

On paper, you have everything perfected. 

You go through the checklist: Designs are complete. Drawings finished. All parts identified. Bill of materials created.

So now you just need prices. 

Time to submit a request for quote.

You turn to trusted Google hoping to find a vendor eager to partner with you on this exciting project. 

You submit your RFQ to several potential suppliers and then……..Crickets. 

As a result, you now find yourself playing the Dreaded RFQ waiting game. 

Dreaded RFQ

Ahh…..the dreaded RFQ. 

To sum up, the dreaded RFQ process can be described as cumbersome and stressful. 

Speaking with professionals in purchasing, they will tell you one of the biggest sources of frustration lies with waiting for a response to a request for quote.  

Waiting for the dreaded RFQ wastes time and resources as well as hurts profits. 

Wouldn’t it be wonderful for those of you in new product development if you could receive a quote immediately?

It’s not that the vendor doesn’t want to get an accurate quote in your hands as quickly as possible. 

Especially with small manufacturers. They simply lack the necessary resources to do so, such as technology, staff and most importantly time. 

The Instant Ground Strap QuoteBuilder 

One U.S. manufacturer dedicated to eliminating the dreaded RFQ process took a big step towards accomplishing that exact goal. 

Who says an “old-school” manufacturer can’t create their own cutting edge software program? Well, Falconer Electronics, the industry leader in custom Ground Straps did just that. 

Serving as a Ground Strap and Wire Harness Manufacturer since 1985, Falconer Electronics produces thousands upon thousands of ground straps. 

To make life much easier for their customers, the company decided to create their own proprietary software: The Instant Ground Strap QuoteBuilder

The software allows you to customize your own ground strap. Literally within seconds. 

Then receive your quote sent directly to your email inbox instantly. 

In addition, you can immediately place an order for your newly created custom Ground Strap within the Falconer Electronics eCommerce store.

Roger Hall, founder and President of Falconer Electronics shares the powerful results with this new program, “The Instant Ground Strap QuoteBuilder consistently opens new doors. It allows our company to engage with customers 24/7 while eliminating the constraint of waiting for the RFQ.” 

Eliminating the Dreaded RFQ process allows Falconer Electronics to connect with companies that otherwise would have never become customers.

Hall explains “Since launching our Ground Strap QuoteBuilder, a wide range of customers have utilized this helpful tool including numerous Fortune 500 companies, OEM’s, mid-tier manufacturers, job shops and much more.”

“These opportunities simply passed us by prior to creating this program. As an American manufacturer, the Instant Ground Strap QuoteBuilder delivers a healthy competitive advantage for Falconer Electronics.”
