What is a Buying Group?

Combined purchasing power leads to growth

Imagine coming together with like-minded distributors to combine your purchasing power for greater business growth. That’s what a buying group enables you to do.

As an independent distributor, you likely buy products in smaller quantities and do not receive the pricing incentives that larger, national distributors receive. By joining The Edge Group and combining your purchasing power with other independent distributors, you gain access to special pricing and improved terms similar to those received by national distributors. The end result? Lower cost of goods and increased margins.

Why We’re Here

To help make distribution better

We help make distribution better for both distributors and manufacturers in the low-voltage electronics industry. As a distributor, you have a voice and a platform to share your thoughts and work closely with top-tier manufacturers. As a manufacturer, you have the opportunity to retain most of your existing sales to middle market distributors in an efficient and cost-effective way. That’s a win-win.
