Fullarton Group,
a promo buying group.

We're not like the other promo groups.

See what we mean!

 

What is the Fullarton Group?

The Fullarton Group is a Member-driven buying group. We are driven to enable independent promotional product distributors and their best suppliers in the sector to jointly outperform the market and stay ahead of their competitors.

 

Fullarton’s model is simple as it is specifically designed to enhance your business (and profits), not change it.  Members always negotiate their own best price (like they do now) and rebates are earned above your own negotiated best price.  

 

Why don’t we negotiate price? 

Simply put, it does not work. In other models where price is negotiated, the biggest Members subsidized the smaller Members. 

Fullarton's Solution

In Fullarton’s model, everyone wins. Members trade purchase volumes to Group Supplier Partners in exchange for rebates and potentially better terms. Since rebates are plateau driven, the more each Member buys the larger each Member’s financial return is.  Members only earn rebates if they purchase from Fullarton Suppliers, and since Members vote in which Suppliers they want in Fullarton, there’s huge value in buying through the Group’s Suppliers. Plus, Members are not locked into a long-term commitment and can choose to leave at any time.

Built by Buying Group Experts

Fullarton has been established by and is managed by Buying Group Services Inc. (BGS). Their team of dedicated buying group experts has, collectively, over 100 years of buying group and purchasing co-operative experience and are recognized as world-leading experts in buying groups. Fullarton’s business model has been modelled after other very successful buying groups started and managed by Buying Group Services. The story behind these other buying groups are very similar to Fullarton’s, a few independents seeking a solution that would allow them to purchase directly from their suppliers and receive competitive pricing. Today, these group's provide a sustainable environment for independents and provide over 3,000 jobs across the county.
