The Recreation Vehicle Dealers Association (RVDA) of Canada announced a new partnership with Acklands-Grainger (AGI) to provide members with a new national member benefit program.
Acklands-Grainger is Canada’s largest distributor of industrial, safety and fastener products.
With 170 branch locations and five distribution centers across Canada, customer needs can be easily met, RVDA of Canada stated in a news release. Acklands-Grainger provides a broad array of products in very competitive prices in the following maintenance, repair and operations (MRO) categories.
RVDA of Canada has negotiated on behalf of its members two levels of pricing: customer specific pricing and catalog discount. The customer specific pricing focuses on core high volume items. Acklands-Grainger has developed this preliminary list in consultation with RVDA of Canada’s Program Development committee.
Items will continue to be added to this level of pricing as collective purchase volumes increase. Any items purchased in large volumes or frequency will also be added to benefit the overall program. The catalog discounts are items that are not captured under customer specific pricing and are eligible for a 10% discount. Inventory at each branch location is tailored specifically to the local market.
To view a complete list of products available, browse the catalog online at www.acklandsgrainger.com or visit a local branch.
Once an account is set up, items that qualify for the two discount levels mentioned above will be viewable. By setting up an account, inventory management solutions and customized billing processes can be implemented right away. Inventory management solutions include: vendor managed inventory, bar coding, on-site service and automated dispensing.
To sign up for an account and start taking advantage of the convenience of one-stop shopping and competitive pricing, complete the credit application form and forward to the completed application to Acklands-Grainger head office by fax at (905) 731-8151.
