What can Columbia Forest Products do for the Building Materials Distributor?
A distributor desires several important aspects from a supplier, most importantly,
a true "partnership". A partner provides both the goods and services that will enable
the distributor to grow and change as the business climate changes. They need to
have both trust and confidence in the supplier.
