Becoming a TMI dealer is a three-step process.
First, an interview between the prospective dealer and TMI personnel (generally a TMI National Accounts Manager and a member of the Senior Management Team) takes place at the dealer's place of business. A number of pertinent topics are discussed here, some of which include markets requested and served, products represented, technology capabilities, company philosophies relating to sales and management, project management capabilities, staffing, cultures, and styles of doing business.

The next step in the process of becoming a TMI dealer is the exchange of financial information and references. TMI will provide complete disclosure of current financial information, including balance sheet and profit/loss statements, insurance, and bonding information. The prospective dealer will be required to provide the same information to TMI.
The third step is a conference between TMI personnel and dealer personnel at the TMI Factory. Much more than a simple interview or meeting, this step includes facility tours, introductions to specific teams that the dealer will be working with, jobsite tours, company lunch, and tours of the surrounding area and attractions, such as Medora and the Theodore Roosevelt National Park. In essence, this is a two to three day experience of the entire TMI culture.
If all steps are completed satisfactorily, and each side agrees to proceed with the relationship, business can begin. TMI will then establish the dealer, supply all necessary forms, sales samples and product samples, and will schedule training sessions at the dealer's business. The dealer is then ready to go.
