What Is a Distributor?

Promotional Supply Chain

Quite often the team at MOBO is asked, “Where do you get your products from?” This diagram may help clarify our role in bringing goods to market.

Well, our role is that of a distributor, and as such, we have the ability to work with more than 4,000 suppliers. With 30 years of experience though, we have established preferred relationships with many of them, primarily because the quality of their merchandise meets our high standards and they stand behind their products, as we do. We also choose preferred suppliers because of the specific brands they carry – brands that are known throughout the world, such as:

  • Under Armour
  • Stormtech
  • Helly Hansen
  • Carhartt
  • Adidas
  • Ogio

As a distributor in the promotional products and branded apparel industry, we are a little unique in that we provide solutions to corporations, charities, associations and retailers for their marketing and branding programs. We also provide those same solutions to teams, schools, family reunions, church groups, and individuals.

Normally, a distributor that is not in our business is selling directly to a retailer, who in turn sells to the consumer. What makes us unique is that we alter the goods by way of embellishment or decorating to reflect your company’s brand or your team colours.

We are placing and receiving orders from our preferred suppliers twice a week. Because of this, it makes it very easy for us to order in samples for you. Our marketing consultants are happy to work with you in finding the perfect selection of items that match your objectives for buying them in the first place. We want to maximize every marketing dollar you spend for the greatest impact.
