Distribution is a complex alternative to buying direct, but in that complexity are many tactical and logistical advantages. Ultimately, a distributor will work to get you the best value for your building product needs.

Lower risk, increased buying power

When you work with a distributor, you’re working with a broad partnership with leading manufacturers. Distributors come with substantial buying power not often found when dealing direct. Distributors offer flexibility and decreased risk when making purchasing deals. With no commitment or minimum purchase requirement, you can benefit from a significant amount of storage space without needing to tie up additional yard space to store your products. With 24/7 access to a vast network, distributors can often get you the product you need with a quick turnaround.
