Together, supplyFORCE and E.B. Horsman & Son are revolutionizing the supply industry. Our partnership combines the efficiency of B2B e-commerce with the strengths of traditional local distribution and adds national contract and uniform pricing capabilities to create the most robust combination of products and services for the MRO market. Backed by North America’s largest distribution network of 300 independent distributors with 2,500 stocking locations, supplyFORCE’s unique clicks-and-mortar solution enables customers to manage local and national procurement requirements more efficiently through integrated supply while maintaining the benefits delivered by local independent distributors. The supplyFORCE network has the power to deliver e-catalogue content and supplies, in electrical, industrial, plumbing/PVF and power-transmission/bearings verticals, and up-to-the-minute industry and new-product information to help procurement professionals work better and more efficiently.
While most e-commerce supply-chain models threaten the local distributor, supplyFORCE leverages the vital on-the-ground inventory and service capability of its world-class distribution network. Customers benefit from integrated supply procurement coupled with reliable local delivery and technical support from local distributors. No other supply-chain solution can match this end-to-end capability. Manufacturers benefit from direct access to an expanded customer audience. Distributors benefit from the harnessed power of the Internet and the ability to service national and local customers without making a costly investment in technology and e-commerce infrastructure. The supplyFORCE network is built on the foundation of Affiliated Distributors, the nation’s leading buying and marketing group, which has achieved more than $20 billion in total industrial and constructions-supply sales. Leveraging its lengthy history with manufacturers and independent distributors, supplyForce meets customer needs than any new dot-com outlet can.
Only supplyFORCE and E.B. Horsman & Son offer the efficiency of online purchasing along with the personal service, support and prompt delivery of a local supplier. Through our partnership, we have the power to deliver products and technical assistance while redirecting costly operations dollars to your bottom line.
