TriMega’s Platinum Partner Program was established more than 5 years ago, and includes ACCO Brands, Enterprise Group, Newell Rubbermaid, Global and now Supplies Network.

“TriMega is pleased to announce Supplies Network as our first distribution partner named to our long standing, and very successful Platinum Partner Program. Throughout the years, Supplies Network has consistently demonstrated their ability to drive needed efficiencies and value in the critical imaging supplies category. Their model is built specifically to help our members better compete in this highly competitive category and their new position in our Platinum Partner Program will go a long way to help our members maximize their results in today’s marketplace,”stated Charlie Cleary, President of TriMega.

TriMega Members benefit from Supplies Network’s highly efficient drop-ship capabilities, low cost delivery model, and unique marketing programs aimed at customer acquisition and retention.
