Our Partners’ Successes Are IBC’s
Increasing profitability through innovation and collaboration
At IBC, we live by a business ethic and approach that is efficient, honest and dependable. Our customer-centric network of Independent Distributors, manufacturers, and end user customers enjoy increased profitability and efficiency. IBC accomplishes these objectives using robust, Lean Six Sigma driven account management, marketing, sales, and technology platforms.
IBC integrates evolving technologies to maintain a seamless platform to engage our buying group stakeholders and customers. These initiatives offer our customers efficiencies in how they run their businesses, track sales data, report cost savings, and measure their progress toward goals.
Uniting Independent Distributors and manufacturers
Serving as a central hub for our network, IBC leverages the individual strengths of each buying group member to drive overall business success. Participation in our network enables our Independent Distributors to collaborate across geographic regions and supply verticals to compete with “big box” distribution companies. IBC’s network is comprised of local and family-owned businesses dedicated to personalized service and superior technical expertise, with a passion for distributing quality products to end user customers.
Product manufacturers who join the IBC buying group are considered our Preferred Suppliers. IBC supports Preferred Suppliers to build business with our Independent Distributors and end user customers through targeted advertising and marketing programs that extend their market reach and visibility.
Increasing end user productivity and profitability
Through our National and Minority Account platforms, IBC leverages the combined strengths of our Independent Distributors and Preferred Suppliers to serve the needs of end user customers looking to consolidate supply purchases on a regional or national level. IBC helps end users achieve overall reductions in their total cost of ownership (TCO) and improve plant operations. Strategic sourcing, integrated supply and e-business technologies provide dependable contract management support, competitive cost savings and vendor consolidation. IBC provides supply coverage throughout North America via collaborations with our network of solution-focused, local Independent Distributors. It is IBC’s unique business model that offers each end user the best of both worlds; the technical strength of independents with a national “big box” feel.
With unparalleled service and solutions for our customers, IBC has earned its reputation as a trustworthy leader in the world of industrial distribution and integrated supply.
