The IBC/Manufacturer Partnership

Unique business-building advantages for premier manufacturers

As a powerful buying group, IBC manufacturers join a network of leading Independent Distributors whose broad portfolio of products reach end users throughout the United States, parts of Mexico and the Caribbean. The IBC network creates opportunities for manufacturer partners to grow annually by targeting sales efforts to distributors and end users who are part of this integrated buying group.

When manufacturers join our network, they become Preferred Suppliers. IBC Independent Distributors are encouraged to collaborate with and purchase from IBC Preferred Suppliers. The strength of our supplier network is part of what makes it possible for IBC to drive the success of our National and Minority Account platforms. At IBC’s Annual National Meeting, Preferred Suppliers find a cost-effective way to connect with senior management from our distributor network, creating opportunities to work together and grow business.

Working across multiple verticals and industries

IBC looks for manufacturers of high quality, top-tier products in a variety of product verticals including industrial supply, bearings and power transmission, and safety supply to participate in our buying group. Through IBC’s network of Independent Distributors, products and services are provided to end users across multiple industries: automotive, aerospace, agriculture, food and beverage, general machining, medical, and more.

IBC offers manufacturers in our buying group:

  • Continuous business growth
  • Strategic sales support based on your company’s product lines
  • End user national and regional contracts
  • Cutting-edge technology
  • The advantages of working with a Minority Business Enterprise (MBE)
  • Minimal product category overlap
  • If you are open to a select channel management strategy, value working with Independent Distributors, and prefer a dynamic, honest partnership, we’d like to talk to you about joining our distinct group of IBC Preferred Suppliers.
