Orgill 2015 Spring Dealer Market

Over 200 Castle members and staff along with an additional 100 Canadian Independent retailers formed the largest Canadian contingent to ever attend the Orgill Dealer Market in Orlando, Florida. The Orgill Spring Market dominated the Orange County Convention Center once again this year with an incredible one-million square feet of exhibit show space and over 3,400 dealers from around the globe.

Castle dealers gathered to see the latest and greatest that Orgill has to offer and take advantage of Pallet Buys, Truckload Sales, Coupon Specials and Door Buster deals. Orgill has become the Independent’s “One-Stop Hardware Solution” and continues to expand their Canadian offering with over 65,000 Canadian compliant sku’s. The 2015 Spring Market included three model-stores and over 1,000 vendor exhibits representing endless hardware and building product categories. Ron Beal; President of Orgill is very optimistic about their Canadian opportunity and maintains that vendors are motivated more than ever to do what it takes to become part of Orgill’s Canadian growth.

Orgill’s commitment to the Canadian Independent as a leading edge hardware solution continues to solidify with a dedicated dealer network, growing Canadian Distribution Centre and commitment to a bilingual offering. Having a distribution centre on Canadian soil has helped bridge the gap and provides Canadian Independents with nationwide single source procurement. James Jones; Castle Vice President, National Marketing who attended the Spring Market had this to say. “I was very impressed in Orlando by how much the Orgill Canadian team has expanded and to see firsthand just how committed they are to the support of their Canadian dealer network.”

Visitors to the show had the opportunity to experience various store footprints and develop a self-contained hardware store for their own location with a customized product assortment and market driven retailing program. Orgill also offers independents a variety of retail solutions and a roadmap to success with custom marketing and merchandising programs including in-store signage solutions, a leading edge eCommerce platform, online flyer program, and digital retail TV, just to name a few.

Castle Building Centres Group also hosted a selection of independent guest dealers from across Canada and introduced them to Orgill; the Fastest Growing Hardware Solution in North America, one that continues to shape the landscape of the Canadian hardware distribution industry and influence positive change.
