TUSCALOOSA, Ala. — AFFLINK, a global leader in supply chain management for more than 35 years, announces that 11 new distributorships in both the U.S. and in Canada, have joined the organization since the beginning of 2014.
This is one of the biggest jumps in membership in the organization's history.
According to AFFLNK President and CEO Dennis Riffer, a big reason for this jump in membership is the fact that "more and more distributors today understand the need to shift [from] their traditional marketing strategies and seek out new training programs, new tools, and innovative technologies to help them compete and win against new competitors and changing market forces."
The companies that have joined the AFFLINK family since January, 2014 include the following:
- Advanced Supply Company
- Atlantic Dominion
- Atlantic Packaging Products
- C & S Cleaning Supply, LLC
- Capital Supply Company
- Complete Supply
- Fox Distributing
- IDI Independent Distributors Inc.
- Myers Supply Co.
- Odorite Company of Baltimore
- Progressive Plastics and Packaging
Riffer also says that another reason for the organization's uptick in new members is its proprietary sales process called eLev8.Â®
Developed by AFFLINK's internal technology team, this web-based process allows distributors to help their customers make fact-based decision, reduce operating costs, improve efficiencies, as well as achieve their Green and sustainability goals.
It has also allowed AFFLINK members to "tap into new opportunities with not only current customers but new customers," says Brian Peters, President of Peter's Supply, Elmira, NY. and an AFFLINK member. "The eLev8 process is allowing our distributors to stay ahead of the curve in servicing their clients and attracting new customers."
