Sales are vital for many industries as it like a backbone of the company. As companies are reaching to a higher level in obtaining and producing more sales there will be more competitors exist to challenge the company sales performance. There will be more competitors entered in the same industries. Based on that reasons, this research has been conducted with purpose to examine the relationship between competitive factors and the sales. Competitive factors is the main topic of this study because it is the crucial factors needed to be considered as it will lead to competitive advantage to a company. The selected company for this study is Tractors Malaysia because it was well established heavy construction equipment manufacturer and can be a good example for this research.
