EDCO created a new distribution network specifically for independent rental businesses.
“Independent rental customers have been the backbone of EDCO's success since (our) first show in 1958,” said EDCO Vice President of Operations Jason Stanczyk. “The best way to show our appreciation for independent rental's warmth is to help them be more successful, and make more money with EDCO products. To do this, we have changed our sales model from direct sales to independent rental, to distribution.
“We’ve partnered with three fantastic companies, MidStates Distribution Inc., or some customers may know them as Construction Product Sales; Big Eight Supply and Tool, also known as Trinity Equipment Solutions; and MTA Distributors, a long time ARA member. All have years of EDCO product experience either by representing our products or distributing them on a smaller scale. This is a unique, educated, partnership that gives independent rental well over 100 years combined experience in the industry.”
Stanczyk says EDCO’s customers can look forward to:
- Enhanced logistics with EDCO inventory now strategically located within your region
- Lower shipping costs and pick up options
- Expert application diagnosis and technical advice
- Local access to trained representatives who teach the profitability of EDCO products
- The same high level of support from EDCO online, over the phone, and in person
- The same pricing structure as before
For 60 years, EDCO has shipped from its single, Frederick, MD, location. The new partners put EDCO machines and accessories closer to shared rental customers.
“Midstates is stocking EDCO in both Chicago and Minnesota. Big Eight Supply and Tool has EDCO in Dallas. MTA stocks us in Nashville,” said Stanczyk. “At no point ever before has this much EDCO been readily available. Because of these companies, lead times will be less, meaning shared customers will get product when they want it.”
The new network's support benefits are available to rental with no immediate hange in pricing structures.
"Prices are the same has it was before distribution," said Stanczyk. "Moving forward, we will all work together to figure out fair pricing throughout the country.
