WHY CHOOSE THE NETWORK
At Automotive Distribution Network (The Network), we take pride in knowing that we don't just sign people up to join our group. Part of our business development strategy is focusing on direct, "one-on-one"
communication when engaging with prospective and existing members. We have a saying, "We don't just send the pamphlets... we send the people." Each of our divisions ensures that
every member has their individual business needs addressed. By spending considerable time reviewing our programs, we can advise members on which services can enhance their
individual, long-term success.
The Network uses combined purchases of all members to negotiate and maintain competitive programs for the entire membership. This combined with industry leading inventory modeling tools allows The Network to have the best position in creating effective programs which offers the greatest potential for savings.
