Distribution Management and Supplies Network Reposition for Growth and Expansion
Saint Louis, Missouri – January 6, 2014 – Distribution Management (DM) announces a realignment of its wholesale distribution branch, Supplies Network, under its umbrella to better position the companies for future growth and new ventures. DM has provided the operational infrastructure for Supplies Network since its launch in 1992. Specializing in the business printing and imaging space, Supplies Network has grown to become a leader in imaging supplies, equipment and Managed Print Services, offering products from over 80 brands including Hewlett-Packard, Brother, Canon, Dell, Lexmark and Xerox.
DM has enabled much of Supplies Network’s success by providing world-class technology and distribution capabilities creating differentiation in a challenging marketplace. Seeking to fuel growth through diversification, the company launched DM Fulfillment in 2012 offering fulfillment and distribution services to small and medium-sized businesses.
Effective January 2014, Supplies Network will be recognized as a division of Distribution Management, along with its sister company DM Fulfillment. This realignment is the result of added focus by company management, led by CEO Sean Fleming, to fully utilize the company’s core competencies, strengths and growth-focused culture to aggressively expand within current markets and new potential markets.
“Since its founding in 1972, Distribution Management has built a highly effective and efficient fulfillment and distribution company,” said Sean Fleming, CEO. “We intend to leverage the decades of work and evolution in developing highly effective technologies, operations, and a national distribution footprint. DM is positioned to capitalize on and continue to add value to the print and office products industry, but also provide a launching pad to many new ventures. Distribution Management, as our front and center brand moving forward, represents a commitment to the markets we are in today through Supplies Network and DM Fulfillment, while also signaling a commitment to expand into new markets and channels.”
