Mabscott Supply Company
The IWDC for our company is arguably the most critical vendor for a variety of reasons.  Much like many other industries, the gas and welding landscape continues to evolve with the emergence of large distributors with regional and national footprints.  With the IWDC sourcing products, it aides our company with leveling the playing field in my opinion.   By leveraging the collective buying power of the IWDC membership, it allows our company to stand toe-to-toe on price with national competitors.  And once the “price hurdle” is removed, it allows us to demonstrate our true value as a committed supplier to our customers.
 
The IWDC is truly a “one stop shop” for most of our welding and associated product needs.  The diverse assortment of quality products with a significant inventory at the Indianapolis IWDC warehouse allows us to spend more time focused on our customers and less time on sourcing products from a variety of places.  The IWDC is our go-to vendor.  Another aspect of being an IWDC member that we value is the use of the PAR profitability reports.  We have found these to be very valuable and key to helping us improve our overall operations.
 
I feel the IWDC is a key and necessary component to operating a business in a highly competitive, commoditized marketplace.  Although we are all independent business, the IWDC represents a collective strength in numbers, with a level of cooperation and collaboration that is unmatched in our industry.
 
A cooperative to me means that in cooperating and collaborating with one other, we leverage the synergies of the respective members for our Mutual Benefit.   We most certainly are achieving this mission within the IWDC.
