Are there really any good reasons to purchase from a distributor rather than straight from the manufacturer? The short answer: Yes.
Distributors and manufacturers are very different but equally important. Manufacturers develop specific products and spend a lot of time on research and development. They are able to focus on what they do and try to be the best at it. Distributors however focus more on the end-user. We have the ability to work with the long standing relationships that we have built with the manufacturers to help customers find the right application rather than an option that only meets basic needs. Presenting multiple options not only allows our customers to find the best fit, it also saves them the time of having to contact, request information, and schedule meetings with multiple vendors. In addition, we purchase at discounted prices in bulk and hold it until our customers are ready to take the product on their floors. With our just in time delivery options, customers do not have to waste valuable space holding months worth of inventory.
Below are some of the manufacturers that we have partnered with over the past decade to present our customers with the best of the best.
