ADMC — American Distribution & Manufacturing Company — was founded in 1936. Today, it’s one of the larger pet products distributors in the country, with 7 cross-dock facilities and 3 distribution centers delivering to 18 states. It’s also a family owned and operated company that so many retailers trust for its dependability, range of products and down-home way of doing business. Despite these old fashioned values, ADMC has invested heavily in 21st century technology, helping retailers to get an ever-increasing mix of products delivered safely, quickly and efficiently to their door. Here are 5 reasons why ADMC has earned its reputation as one of the country’s leading pet products distributors:
1. Product Selection
As consumer preferences change and new products come to market, ADMC has the experience to adapt quickly to market changes. Most recently, the company installed a 400,000 cubic foot, state-of-the-art freezer to carry more raw, frozen and gently cooked brands and products. It’s an example of ADMC’s continual reinvestment in the business to give customers the best products and services available.
2. Industry Standard Fill Rates
With over 18,000 SKUs and 500 brands, ADMC is dedicated to meeting customer demand and keeping store owners satisfied. ADMC gives retailer partners a competitive retail advantage by consistently providing industry-leading fill rates making sure the product retailers want is available and can be delivered quickly.
3. Automated Logistics
ADMC has invested heavily in logistics to make sure retailers get what they want when they want it. With three distribution centers in 18 states, delivering in a timely manner is strategic to customer satisfaction. The family launched American Logistics Services, an independently operated trucking company, in 2000 to better control these services. ALS offers next day delivery throughout the central United States and schedules weekly returns pickups so non-revenue generating product doesn’t take up a store’s valuable storage space.
At ADMC, customers always come first. It’s been the company’s guiding principle since its founding. Whether it’s help with a plan-o-gram or a special delivery, ADMC customers receive the most exceptional support and service in the industry. The company continually reinvests in its business to guarantee the best products and the highest level of customer care. It’s this integrity and dedication to its customers and product partners that make ADMC a leader in the industry today.
5. Four Generations & 85+ Years of Experience
It’s amazing but true: ADMC is a fourth-generation family-owned and operated company — a rarity in today’s business world. Founded by Tony Duclos, Sr. in 1936, he was soon joined by his sons and today, grand-children and great-grand-children. As the pet products industry continues to expand exponentially, they continue this passion of fairness, reinvestment in the business and a dedication to the customers they serve.
