Buying Group Benefits
Leverage the power of the IBC buying group to build your business
IBC carefully selects Independent Distributors to participate in its buying group based on proven business results, technological savvy and the ability to meet end user needs. Our number one goal in supporting our buying group is to drive increased profits for IBC Independent Distributors and Preferred Suppliers. We are continuously investing in new technology and sales and marketing initiatives to meet and exceed that goal.
Independent Distributors in the IBC network benefit from the opportunity to buy and sell many product categories at exceptional discounts through IBC’s buying program, earning an annual rebate on purchase dollars along with other growth incentives.
When Independent Distributors partner with IBC, they take advantage of a wide variety of benefits including:
- Deep discounts on products through our Preferred Supplier network
- Access to top-quality brands and services across multiple product verticals
- Opportunities to exchange inventory with other in-network distributors through IBC’s MemberMarket™
- Access to cutting-edge technology to streamline business processes, improve sales tracking and enhance productivity
- Proactive sales support to increase existing business and attract new customers
- Limited geographic overlap to reduce direct competition among members
- Opportunities to collaborate with other non-competing distributors in the buying group
- Peer-to-peer business building opportunities through IBC’s annual National Meeting
- Participation in our Minority Contract program to extend minority credits to end users
- Participation in our National Contract program to serve end users interested in national sourcing and vendor consolidation
The combined power of our buying group makes IBC an attractive alternative to national “big box” distributors and manufacturers. Distributors who enroll in our buying group know they are joining a dynamic collaboration of innovative, like-minded business owners committed to business success, sustainability and service.
