About our services:
Connecting fun and innovative products to Northwest retailers.
Experience. Insight. Innovation.
As manufacturer’s representatives we are here to serve you. Our years of experience are our greatest asset. We will help you navigate potentially buying from 30+ individual product lines. Knowing who you are and the consumers you serve helps to streamline the product selection process. We will partner with you to grow your business. As always, there is no fee for our service. We are contracted by the manufacturers we represent.
Placing your orders with your representative whenever possible enables them to manage the territory and to avoid over selling the same brand regionally. We are involved in maintaining the integrity of the industry and are dedicated to the growth and success of the independent retailer. Please, take advantage of all the services a rep has to offer.
