Derby Building Products, the parent company of the Tando brand of products, introduced the Tando Dealer Express program, to make Tando products easier to buy and sell for dealers. With Tando Dealer Express, Tando products are ordered through the distributor, but shipped directly to the dealer to keep orders moving.
“We launched Tando Express in 2019 as a way to better serve our partners. This year, we refocused the program into Tando Dealer Express with the objective to make transacting business even easier for our dealers given current market conditions,” Derby CEO Ralph Bruno said in a news release. “Tando Dealer Express can help supplement and bridge any product gaps while inventory dollars are tight. This will allow our distributors and dealers to capture revenue and ensure that no orders are left behind.”
Bruno said the program was developed using feedback from distributor and dealer partners and the program is designed to ensure dealers get what they need during the pandemic, especially for installers in the middle of a job. Dealers can purchase a wide variety of Tando products through Tando Dealer Express with location delivery within two weeks.
Product accessories such as J-Channel, Vinyl Corners, and Starter Strip will be available in shorter lengths to allow for economical shipping via parcel post. Tando said stocking dealers will receive pricing advantages over non-stocking dealers through Tando Dealer Express.
Tando said to participate in the program, dealers and lumberyards should contact their Tando distributor to place a Tando Dealer Express order.
