2017 STAFDA Directory Media Kit
The Distribution Channel's One-Stop-Shop for Building Market Share
— In Print and Online
As fast as technology is working to change the way the world does business, some facts are truly carved in stone — Distributors won't buy from vendors they don't trust and they can't sell what they can't find.
The distribution channel is founded on three timeless principles: quality products, prompt delivery and knowledgeable, trustworthy, relationship-based service.
The STAFDA Member Directory is the construction supply industry's only source of reputable distributors, suppliers (and their valuable rep agency partners) who are dedicated to serving the industry via distribution.
From single-store operations to giants with hundreds of stores, STAFDA Member Distributors have dedicated their entire lives to building long-term relationships with the leading contractors in their markets — and those distributors have become industry and market leaders in the process. If you want your products to be represented by the best sales forces in the world, look no further than STAFDA.
The proof is in the numbers; the average STAFDA Distributor Member sells $13.2 million in goods and services every year.
