Benefits to our Members:

A competitive advantage

Instant access to more than 400 suppliers – leading manufacturers with great brands and huge ranges to choose from. Sourcing high-quality products for your customers is quick and easy, even when they’re looking for highly specialised tools and equipment.

Backed by our collective buying power, members can always offer very competitive prices. And have access to exclusive product offers, providing another way to keep customers happy – and to attract new ones.

More Sales – creating time to sell more

As every business knows, time is money – and being a member can save significant amounts of both. We offer full back-office support that simplifies and streamlines the admin, leaving more time to focus on selling to customers.

Members can buy from as many suppliers as they like and have just one invoice to deal with. So, members make a single payment to us.  Members can also track and view their account online, as well as gain access to many other time saving tools within the dedicated members area of our website.

Strategic support

Being part of the group is about much more than looking after your customers day to day. We help our members think ahead, to find new ways to build and improve their business.

You’ll gain exclusive insights through our business intelligence, market analysis and product information. We also help our members to use technology more effectively – especially in the development of digital options for choosing and buying products that many customers now expect.

Having an evolving strategy is vital to any business. We support our members in this by leveraging both member & supplier networks and look to develop continuous improvements in pricing, trading solutions, credit facilities, reward programs and much more.

An extended team

The beauty of joining our group is you’re never alone. No matter what size of business, we provide a range of services that can be used as an extension to their business. This includes support with ongoing sales development, creating opportunities to become a key account, servicing large scale end users, provision of VMI solutions, contract negotiations, and providing access to marketing services and product specialists.

We also put members in touch with trusted providers of business services, such as printing, recycling, phone and internet contracts, and can offer continuous business support in the area of training and development through our partnership with Action Coach, offering the Training Academy.

Throughout the year we also create opportunities to network. Our TMB event, is one of the most highly regarded trade shows in the industry. The Show is an ideal platform for Suppliers to meet the decision makers within the combined membership and to take advantage of exclusive show only deals. It has become an event that is eagerly awaited by suppliers and members alike and we at Troy are very pleased that it is a must for our suppliers to be represented at our event. The event is not just a Trade Show; it is a place where orders are taken, business relationships prosper, friendships are cemented; all in just one day.
