September 3, 2013 – You’ve heard the rumours, and now IMARK Canada is officially open for business and accepting member applications. FYI, IMARK Group is a member owned/governed North American electrical and lighting distribution industry marketing group.
“The founding members of IMARK Canada greatly value IMARK Group’s cooperative business model, and the transparency of our business practices for member/owners and our supplier partners,” said IMARK group president and CEO Bob Smith. “They believe, as we do, that leading independent electrical and lighting distributors throughout Canada should have a choice when it comes to the marketing group that is the best fit for their company.”
IMARK Group says that, in the months leading up to the initial launch of IMARK Canada, Jerry Knight (vice-president of supplier relations) had been introducing IMARK Canada to the leading manufacturers in the Canadian distribution and lighting market.
“We are focused on building a line card of premier manufacturers for the members of IMARK Canada,” said Knight. “Work continues, but we are gratified by the response we have received.”
