Founded in 1975, ABM unites independent wholesale 2-step distributors and enhances performance and profitability through its collective buying power and shared best practices. Distributor members enjoy larger and more frequent rebates as a result of ABM's national footprint and global sourcing options. The Allied Supplier Group values national distribution opportunities without the politics and difficulties typically associated with selling through national distributors. It is the objective of the ABM members to be not only the best supplier to their customers but the best customer to their suppliers.
