TriMega and The United Group (TUG) Join Forces!

TUG_Logo_7.1.18TriMega is pleased to announce a new affiliation with The United Group (TUG), a sales and marketing organization for Jan/San, Packaging, Foodservice and Safety product manufacturers and distributors.  This affiliation will provide immediate access for TriMega dealers to purchase directly though TUG’s breadth of 200+ preferred jan/san suppliers for your industrial, safety and foodservice needs.  These opportunities are effective July 1, 2018 for TriMega dealers.
The United Group® (TUG) is a 100% Member-owned, national sales and marketing organization for independent B2B distributors, and maintains secure purchasing agreements with more than 200 elite industry manufacturers and service companies. TUG is dedicated to promoting strong relationships among Members and Suppliers for increased profitability for all.

How this works…
  • TUG’s preferred suppliers will acknowledge TriMega dealers as affiliate members of TUG and will offer the same rebates and pricing structure enjoyed by 400+ TUG members today.  Orders that you place through a TUG preferred supplier will be invoiced directly to you, and you will pay the supplier directly based on their individual invoice terms. 
  • TUG vendor purchases will not flow through TriMega’s centralized billing program, so you will need to create an account with each TUG supplier that you choose to do business with.  Your TriMega membership number is required for all TUG vendor purchases in order for them to report your sales and rebates back to TUG each quarter. 
  • TUG will, in turn, report your purchases to TriMega and your rebates will flow directly back to you along with all your TriMega central bill supplier rebates each quarter.
