Manufacturer. Distributor. Buyer. End-User.
The Manufacturer’s job is to provide Distributors with the best options for their Buyer’s branded uniform program. That includes garments and information on best practices for planning the program. Distributors ask their Buyers important questions at the start of every project to understand it thoroughly. Below are some questions distributors may ask.
- Who will be wearing the uniforms? Describe job function(s)?
- Where will they be wearing their uniforms?
- What does the company/group/organization do?
- Have they provided any reference or inspiration materials?
- What type of uniform program are they interested in? In-Stock, Semi-Custom or Fully Custom?
- How many uniforms are needed in each category? Will there be repeat orders?
- What is the delivery deadline?
- Where will the finished uniforms be delivered?
- What is the budget for the project?
- Are there any specials considerations that we must be aware of?
Distributors are Advocates for the Buyer
In this business model the phrase “Middle Man” doesn’t carry the usual negative connotation. Distributors advocate for Buyers and communicate with the Manufacturer for them which helps everyone involved plan production more efficiently. A thorough distributor who takes time to ask all of the important questions is well-equipped to develop the best uniform program to suit their client’s needs. They also avoid unnecessary steps that waste time and money. And by working hand-in-hand with the manufacturer, they guarantees their buyer good prices, reliable timelines and accurate quantities. Most of all—peace of mind.
