Which Came First? The MagnumDisk or the Egg?

Posted by Justin Brandt on May 31, 2016 2:48:21 PM

When it comes to pressure control disks, there’s only one name trusted around the world for superior wellbore isolation: MagnumDisk™. But what you don’t know is the interesting story behind the design of the MagnumDisk™. When our President/CEO Lynn Frazier was a young boy, his father called him to the chicken coop one evening to gather eggs. His father handed him an egg and placed it in his hand vertically, he told him to squeeze it as hard as he could to see if he could break it, Lynn cupped the egg in his hand and squeezed as hard as he possibly could, but the egg wouldn't break. The egg’s unique shape gives it tremendous strength despite its thin shell. Eggs are similar in shape to a three-dimensional arch, one of the strongest architectural forms. 

Fast-forward to 1997, like all Magnum products, Lynn was presented with a challenge to develop a specific solution to a customer’s problem. At this time, all existing differential tools had a thick flat glass as a barrier and were very difficult to break. The customer needed a barrier as thin as possible, but as strong as possible to be able to hold back enormous pressures. During the design phase, Lynn reflected back on that moment with his dad in the chicken coup and created the one of a kind design for the product we now call the MagnumDisk™. If you look at the shape of a ceramic disk, the top of the disk is almost identical to that of an egg.

In July of 1999, Lynn was issued his first patent for the MagnumDisk™ and it continues to be one of the most popular Magnum products because of its simplicity, reliability and cost effectiveness. See for yourself.

The Value of Customer Intimacy in a down Market

Posted by Lizzie Tave on Feb 29, 2016 4:24:58 PM

As the oil and gas industry continues to experience a downturn, companies are faced with the difficult task of finding ways to stand out from the crowd. As prices and products become more closely aligned throughout the market, it becomes increasingly more difficult to differentiate your products from the competition. Thus, customer intimacy has now become vital to the success of any company in a volatile market. Here are a few of the biggest benefits:

  1. Innovation through Collaboration

When you develop close relationships with your customers, they can offer you a wealth of knowledge about what type of products they need. You have the ability to innovate together with your customer based on what challenges you can overcome for them. Collaborating with your customers allows you to address each of their individual needs and tackle their specific challenges with innovative, designed for purpose solutions.

  1. Customer Loyalty

When you continuously offer reliable products or services that are suited specifically to your customer’s needs, it most often leads to a strong sense of loyalty to your brand. Because of positive prior experiences, your customers will come to you first when in need of a new product or service, and they will boost your reputation as they speak highly of you to others in the industry.

  1. Sustainable Source of Revenue

As you increase and improve your customer relationships, those customers will turn into returning customers and begin to provide a steady source of income for your business. You can start to rely on those customers to continue purchasing your products, as they rely on you to continue offering successful products and solutions.

The benefits of close customer relationships are interconnected; when you collaborate with your customers to fulfill a specific need, they will most often become loyal customers, which creates a reliable source of revenue for your company. Customer intimacy is a long-term commitment that requires time and money spent fostering relationships, but the reward for your company could mean the difference between falling behind in an ordinary crowd and standing out as a unique and trusted brand that always has the best interests of the customer in mind. At Magnum, our first step to build customer intimacy is to “make our customer the hero.” We want to make certain that when our customers use our products, they can feel confident that they are using a solution fit for the job – one that ensures their success. When you do that, the benefits for both consumer and supplier are endless.
