We have established relationships with regional builders and developers helping them navigate through choices where price and availability is key to a project. In many cases our distributors ask us to provide a value engineered solution to a project. As the factory representative we know where to turn, saving time and money. We negotiate with our manufacturer partners to achieve favorable pricing and coordinate inventory availability, often months or more than a year into the future so you have one less headache. After our product gets on the spec we work with distribution to facilitate procurement in the most efficient way possible.
We disagree with claims that the showroom channel is dying, we believe it will survive and some are thriving as they evolve to be more efficient businesses. Wise showrooms should partner with key vendors that makes increased margins possible, are easy to do business with and support their business. Equally, rep's that invest their time and money in partnership with showrooms add value worthy of further investments. For 30 years we have created unique visual environments that enhance sales, while also providing inventory support programs as styles change.
