Independent merchant buying group IBC has acquired its 200th member in only five short years.
John Brett from IBC said: “We are absolutely delighted that 200 like-minded, forward-thinking and progressive independent merchants have supported our idea. It proves how robust the independent merchant sector is and how well set it is for the upturn in the economy.
“We’d also like to add our sincere thanks to all of our approved suppliers who have supported us from where we were to where we are now. Our aim is to carry on delivering value to our supply chain partners through profitable product mix, new business and innovation, and 2014 is the year of our inaugural supplier of the year awards to further thank and support their efforts.”
Mr Brett continued: “Helping to develop our members’ businesses with a suite of business development tools is IBC’s key goal in the short term, allowing our members to concentrate on maximising their performance in the strengthening marketplace.
“IBC is committed to the future of the independent merchant market and feel that it has never been in better health, and fit for the future.”
