We Work With You

At E&M, customers are not a number or a name hidden in a file until the next problem or billing cycle comes along. We form relationships with our customers, not just business arrangements. We listen to you, ask you questions and respect your answers. We will work with you to get through the challenges that confront your business and ours..

Your E&M sales representative or store manager is your link to the resources of the corporation. Our sales people and store managers have access to all levels of the corporation, and so do you
