The Edge Group is a distributor-owned buying and marketing group serving the datacom, security, low voltage, electronic MRO, and electronic OEM industries. With corporate offices based in Houston, Texas, we have a membership of 100 independent distributors and have cultivated strategic partnerships with leading industry manufacturers that have more than 200 product lines.
A buying group consists of similar independent businesses who come together to leverage their combined purchasing power. Because independent distributors typically buy products in smaller quantities, they do not receive the pricing incentives that larger, national distributors receive. By joining The Edge Group and combining their purchasing power, independent distributors now have access to special pricing and improved terms similar to those received by national distributors. The end result? Lower cost of goods and increased margins.
