Why Work With Us
Hear From Our Clients and Partners
After 60 years in business you know who to sell to and who not to sell to. Word gets around fast in our industry. You know who is honest. You know who has integrity. You know who has reliability. Most of all you know who is going to pay. This is also why we go to the national ISRI meetings to meet our consumers and vendors face to face. You can get a real feel for somebody just by looking and talking to them. I met the specialists from Tungco at a national ISRI meeting. Boy am I glad we did.

One of the many reasons why I prefer to do business with Tungco is how smoothly the entire transaction progress is: From the initial contact with the procurement staff, through transportation, sortation, settlement, and payment – everything just runs like a well-oiled machine. Since we are a small, family-owned business, the administrative time savings is of great value to us. Their staff is always professional, friendly and knowledgeable. I would highly recommend Tungco to anyone for their Tungsten Carbide needs.
It has been an enormous pleasure and privilege to work with Tungco these past several years. The entire team is filled with honorable and intelligent staff.

TUNGCO is a first class operation. They do exactly what they say they will do. There is never a need to check on them. The system flows smoothly from when you receive the quote till you receive a check. All their prices are very competitive on your products that you want to move and you can guarantee that your payment will be sent to you. Our company has worked with others many years ago. Since AMAMCO found out about TUNGCO we teamed up together and it has been very beneficial for the both of us. We have worked together for many years and will continue in the future.
Tungco was referred to us by someone we have a lot of respect for in our industry. We had been struggling with fair pricing and timely payment from other companies. We knew it was the perfect fit when all of the issues went away, but in addition, they willingly offer to go over and above the “norm”. We really value long-term relationships with vendors who are great people, fun to be around and most of all strive for an exceptional customer experience! We are so pleased that they are a part of our team!

I have been a member of the Tungco team since March of 2014. Last fall I completed a CPE course entitled Best Practices for Getting Paid Faster (Invoicing Best Practices). I was impressed with the relevance it had to not only our company’s accounts receivable, but to all companies.
