Vendors / Acquisition Overview
Today’s product manufacture and supply chain is driven by world economies, markets, prices, demands, and competition. Mom-and-pop businesses have been engulfed by multi-national conglomerates bent on controlling market share worldwide. Everywhere…local consumers buy foreign product with local dollars from big box stores who send profits to corporate offices little interested in the community who bought their wares. Meanwhile, multi-generational families feel the economic sting in homegrown industry, housing, and costs of living.
Who Is A Vendor?
Vendors are those companies or firms poised somewhere between manufacture and supply. They represent those who either produce, market, broker, or retail products of all types all over the world to all demographics at varied price levels. Traditionally…large vendors distribute through dealer networks. Small vendors distribute what they secure from purchasing groups. Over the past few years, global vendors are by-passing their own established distribution structures to sell large-volume consumers…direct. Either way, vendors are a essential to the supply and demand equation.
As product manufacturers further dominate supply line flow, customer size and demand keeps pace. Every day…large actively-growing well-capitalized companies probe for direct purchase arrangements with world class vendors in their quest to cut costs. As large companies and vendors connect…local business decline and close due to lost sales. Personal service, seasoned experience, and in-house inventory are replaced by overnight air as smaller dealers disappear forcing all to buy from long-distant warehouses lacking local representation or product support.
