AFFLINK Celebrates 50th Anniversary
AFFLINK recently marked its 50th year of business.
The company was launched in 1973 as a buying group network of independent jan/san distributors. Over the next five decades, AFFLINK has grown to provide products and services to a variety of industry sectors, including packaging, healthcare, hospitality, and government. The organization now boasts nearly 600 distributor-members across the United States.
“We are now the largest and most diverse network of distributors in the country,” Michael Wilson, AFFLINK senior vice president of business development, said. “Much of this growth is due to our sales and marketing support (for our members), ongoing sales training and education, and due to our size, the ability to negotiate rebates and product discounts for our members.”
Tuscaloosa, AL-based AFFLINK provides an array of sales and marketing solutions to more than 300 distributors and 200 supplier organizations of jan/san, packaging, safety, and office products. For more information, visit www.afflink.com.
