Omni Services, Inc. Receives IDCO 2021 Outstanding Member Award
We are proud to announce that Omni Services, Inc. has earned the Outstanding Member Award from the Industrial Distributor Cooperative (IDCO) for 2021. The award recognizes Omni Services as a top member of the cooperative, founded in 1993 to increase purchasing power among independent, family-owned distributors serving the hose and connectors industry. Now with over seventy members, IDCO is at the leading edge of the fluid conveyance industry, and it is a tremendous honor to be recognized as an outstanding member of the group.
In the face of unprecedented material shortages and supply chain issues, Omni Services utilized the extensive IDCO network to give our customers the best product quality and service possible. Buying from IDCO-approved suppliers allows Omni to widen the breadth of our product catalog and services to new and existing customers. In 2021, Omni Services bought from nearly forty IDCO-approved suppliers, increasing our IDCO purchases by 44% over the last year. This dramatic growth exemplifies Omni’s commitment to constantly improving our customer offering.
Omni’s Chief Financial Officer, Karen Brandvold, was on hand to accept the award at last week’s 2022 IDCO Expo along with a team of Omni employees. Brandvold writes,
“We are honored to be recognized as an Outstanding IDCO member and proud to be a part of the IDCO organization, which is dedicated to helping family-owned independent distributors grow and survive in today’s competitive market. The success of independent distributors ensures customers have continued access to a broad array of products and services. We look forward to growing along with IDCO in the future.”
Omni Services has been a member of IDCO since 2018.
The Independent Distributors Cooperative, or IDCO, was formed in 1993 with the purpose of leveling the playing field for industrial distributors in the face of large corporate distributors, or ‘big box’ distributors, attempting to monopolize the industry.
