Hamilton Building Supply is introducing a subscription-based membership benefits program, HBS SELECT, for contractors and remodelers. The program will be offered to all Hamilton Building Supply customers. Contractors subscribing to the program will receive year-end rebates on all purchases, free delivery with no order minimums, free stock returns, and extended payment terms on a flexible basis. The program will go live on January 1, 2020.

“We designed HBS SELECTTM as a program to support the businesses that contractors run on a daily basis” John Perna, president of Hamilton Building Supply, said in a public statement. “Given the competitive nature of our industry, it’s become increasingly challenging for contractors to generate healthy profits. Our company wants to aide our pro customers in the success of their businesses.”

According to Hamilton Building Supply, the primary benefit of HBS SELECTTM is the tiered year-end rebate. A percentage of every dollar spent with Hamilton Building Supply will be paid back to members at the end of the year and the rebate percentage increases as certain purchase levels are met.

While customers who are not in the HBS SELECTTM program will pay nominal delivery and stock return fees, subscribers to the program will have those fees waived.

“Delivery is a critical, yet expensive aspect of any business model,” Perna said. “Well-known companies in other industries differentiate their delivery and return programs based on customer commitment, and we’re ready to offer a similar program for the lumber and building materials industry.”

Perna joined Hamilton Building Supply as president in August, replacing Keith Coleman, who now serves as chairman and co-owner of the dealer.
