At the helm of many distribution companies, we find entrepreneurs who have a deep understanding of customer needs, and founded their company to provide superior sales and service. It is your ability to remain flexible, scalable, and responsive to your customers that keeps you on top in a competitive and ever-changing industry.

With over 400,000 distributors in the US, and an increasing number of manufacturers and big retailers by-passing distributors, you must differentiate and customize your services to ensure your growth. Rising customer expectations often found in BtoC businesses - more choice, better quality, lower prices, and faster delivery times, have edged into BtoB world. These expectations and your ability to respond determine the success of your company.

By investing in technology, systems and people, distribution companies can remain ahead of their competitors. Summer Street has helped companies drive innovation and technology integration making operations run more efficiently and with improved visibility. We have helped companies implement strategic pricing initiatives, improve inventory management systems, build robust sales teams, strengthen supply chain management, and initiate global sourcing all to make sure your company stays on top.
