Redistributors of America (RDA) and Advantage Marketing Associates (AMA) announced that their respective organizations have agreed to merge.

The combined organization would represent the largest group of wholesalers across North America, with 18 independent redistributors operating out of 28 Distribution Centers strategically located throughout Canada and the U.S.

“This merger delivers a host of benefits to both our distributor customer base and our vendor partners”, stated Wayne Littlefield, Forman Inc., Chairman of RDA. “We proudly define our compelling working style by…’Delivering the Independent Difference’ coupled with our operating pledge…’There’s no better way to buy’ in a most dramatic and genuine fashion with this merger”, Chuck Wuttke, CSB Industries, President of Advantage, added.

“This consolidation of independent redistributors brings a stimulating new dimension to the supply channel”, Wuttke further offered. “We bring our ‘owner-operator…hands-on-style’ of operations that creates a defining difference in how we go to the marketplace,” Wuttke remarked.

RDA and Advantage believe that the combined strength and acumen of this collaboration will provide an array of welcome opportunities and values to the supply channel.
