Strategic partnership – Select Winsupply showrooms join Luxury Products Group
Aurora, Ohio — As part of their commitment to drive sales, select Winsupply showroom locations have reached an agreement with Luxury Products Group, the nation’s most award-winning decorative showroom buying group.
From the beginning, Winsupply has embraced a philosophy based on helping capable, hard-working people achieve their dreams. They do this by enabling aspiring entrepreneurs to own and operate their own wholesale distribution businesses. Winsupply refers to this as “The Spirit of Opportunity,” and it is a motivating factor when it comes to every business decision.
Luxury Products Group is dedicated to helping its member showrooms improve the luxury experience for their customers. Jeff MacDowell, Executive Director, noted, “The mission of LPG is to provide our members a competitive advantage financially and professionally, with select products that define luxury in their marketplace. We also want to provide a solid partnership that is equally advantageous to our suppliers. There is an amazing comfort level that LPG members have in discussing ideas and practices with each other. It’s a powerful thing in business when you can learn from your peers and vendors around the country.”
“We are looking forward to the resources and products provided through Luxury Products Group for our showrooms,” said Amy Souders, marketing manager, plumbing – finished goods, for Winsupply Inc. “We believe our showrooms will also benefit from the sharing of expertise among LPG members.”
As MacDowell shared, “LPG supports independent showrooms and since Winsupply locations operate under independent ownership, we believe they will be a very good fit for LPG. I am excited to meet with and work with the Winsupply team. Everyone is engaged and excited to learn more. This will be a game changer for both organizations!”
“Given the longstanding relationship between Imark electric with Winsupply, I am thrilled to deepen the relationship by adding LPG to the portfolio,” said Bob Smith, President of Imark group.
LPG will assist these Winsupply locations by improving their financial performance with rebates, providing greater marketing capabilities, developing training plans and sharing best practices. The Winsupply showroom teams will benefit from the enhanced training, marketing and networking opportunities provided by LPG.
Luxury Products Group was created in 2009 by the members of Omni Corporate Services Ltd., Inc., as the avenue for members to network with like-minded people sharing ideas and challenges to expand their showroom businesses, as well as an opportunity to buy and sell products from a variety of showroom-oriented vendors worldwide. LPG is now a vertical under the IMARK Plumbing Division.
