D&H Distributing revealed a series of new initiatives for its 2018 fiscal year, which kicked off May 1.
Investments planned by the tech distributor include:
*Improved logistics: D&H is enhancing its capabilities in logistics, inventory management, forecasting and e-commerce support in order to provide optimal services in a demanding retail marketplace.
*Increased Customer Breadth: The distributor will increase support and funding for its manufacturer partners.
*Added sales personnel: D&H will “dramatically” increase its sales staff.
*New Canadian Distribution Center: A new warehouse in Vancouver, British Columbia, will open, joinin D&H Canada’s HQ in Brampton, Ontario. The new center is intended to speed delivery, as well as expand logistical services within the western end of the country.
*Enhanced “work/life balance”: As a private, family-owned company celebrating its 99th anniversary, D&H said it maintains an extraordinary focus on work/life balance, offering a long list of internal events and activities meant to strengthen its team and engender a family atmosphere. Activities include “softball slams,” family picnics and movie nights, and “D&H Cares” co-owner charity events. In addition, multiple fun co-owner events are planned each month to celebrate D&H’s “Centennial Countdown” year.
“Just as we’ve grown business with partners in the past years, D&H is laser-focused on adding incremental revenue for dozens of key vendors,” said Michael Schwab, co-president at D&H. “The goal is to generate increased opportunities for our customers, and we intend to double-down on those investments. We’re looking to add dozens of strategic, complementary manufacturers to expand our customers’ revenues and breadth of offering.”
