our story has been more than three decades in the making and is an ongoing team collaboration. we are proud of our history and passionate about applying our supply chain knowledge to help manufacturers.
created a reputation
1987: In an effort to provide manufacturers with increased value, RGB grew our developing expertise in the distribution and application of cutting tools, coolants, and lubricants.
Through the 1990's RGB continued its focus on abrasives and cutting tools distribution, adding new customers and expanded geographic reach across Pennsylvania, Maryland, Ohio, Virginia, and West Virginia.
2000: We installed our first industrial vending machines, choosing Autocrib as our partner from the start. Working hard within an evolving business landscape, we embarked on a period of focused change, adding new skill sets to our team and bringing to market new approaches in integrated supply to help develop solutions for manufacturers.
partnership with Affiliated Distributors
2005: RGB's integrated supply model required that we supply a broader range of indirect materials to increase our service capabilities, we partnered with Affiliated Distributors (A-D), a $20 billion plus North American buying collaborative. A-D has provided cost-competitive access to suppliers of safety, MRO, welding, and janitorial supplies to name only a few primary categories.
With our expanded service offerings and product category support, we began to partner with clients in new geographic markets including Indiana, Missouri, New York, and Wisconsin.
We are in the business of developing long-term partnerships with industry-leading manufacturers. We've collaborated with some clients for more than 15 years. We feel that the length of these relationships is a reflection of our commitment to value-added services, information transparency, and our passion for bringing supply chain efficiencies to manufacturing.
