Urner Barry Today and Tomorrow
In many ways, the old adage, the more things change, the more they stay the same, applies to Urner Barry's company mission today. The company does not depend on just the mail service to deliver information to clients, though that is still important. Internet, facsimiles and satellites are also utilized to communicate directly to clients.
Reporters can no longer limit their research to visiting the markets in lower Manhattan between Fourteenth and Canal Streets. Daily contact is now maintained by telephone, facsimile, and computer with buyers and sellers in major marketing areas across the country and throughout the world.
What has not changed over the years is a dedication to the principle of absolute objectivity as reporters formulate daily price quotations or market conditions. They must know and trust their information sources just as their predecessors Benjamin Urner and Frank Barry did more than a century ago.
Who gives Urner Barry the right as well as the responsibility of quoting the market each day? According to President Paul B. Brown, Jr., that answer is quite simple "It's our clients! Over the years, we have earned their trust. We will never let them down."
