Sourcing and compliance.
We find you the right products // no matter how odd, obscure, or obsessively specific they may be.
If it exists, we’ll find it. If it doesn’t, we’ll make it.
We have an international network of vendors through which we source all of our products. If you're in the US or Canada or UK, our domestic vendors can get your goods quickly. If you're not in a rush, our overseas manufacturing partners can source, or create, pretty much anything...for budget friendly prices. Whatever your circumstances, you get the best products on your terms, at your price point.
Encyclopedic product knowledge:
When our vendors speak, we listen. They're in and out of our offices every week, so that we're informed on what's now, what's next, what's practical, and what's economical. We use that knowledge to find an intersection between our clients' needs and our vendors' products. We have a knack for anticipating what works and what doesn't.
360° of safety
We're not sitting on the sidelines when it comes to safety, in fact we're helping to set the bar higher. As active members of the Quality Certification Alliance's Distributor Advocacy Council and the Product Responsibility Action Group (PRAG), we assume a prominent role in educating our own industry on compliance best practices, and advising on the future of industry safety measures. All of this means that you're getting the safest products and highest standards from the company that's leading the charge.
Safe, responsible overseas sourcing:
We only source from manufacturers who have strong, documented fair labor practices in place. As part of that agreement, our overseas manufacturers must abide by our Code of Conduct. Our global sourcing and compliance director manages these relationships. The safety side is important as well. You're attaching your reputation to a product, and we want you to be confident that those products are in compliance with all applicable laws.
Every budget deserves quality products:
We don't want you to compromise on your priorities. Our vendor network gives us an abundance of choice, which means we can find the products you want within your budget. Beyond price, we have other ways to help reduce your cost, so we can still preserve your quest for quality and affordable products.
Practicing what we preach:
We want to have the most enviable best practices in the industry. Our job is to push the envelope, always demanding more from ourselves and our partners. So, when we set out to enact change, we face it head on. That's how our environmental policies were drafted. We wanted to be sustainable, and those policies keep us accountable to that vision. It's also how our Code of Conduct was created. We wanted more accountability from our vendors, and that document does the trick. The only way to grow is the challenge your current processes, disrupt what isn’t working, and adapt and evolve.
