Service Providers: Connect with paper distribution executives

Think of NPTA as Access to the Premier Distributors in the Industry.

NPTA has created a membership category specifically for service providers within the paper supply chain. Our Service Provider membership category represents companies such as software providers, consultants, architects and firms interested in marketing their services to the paper industry.

As the premier association of wholesale distributor decision-makers in North American, NPTA is often utilized by Service Provider firms to tap into our cost- and time-efficient network.

More than 50 wholesale paper distributors, operating 1,000+ distribution centers, are NPTA members and attend our events in order to source new products and find innovative new lines.

Thirty-five leading paper manufacturers actively participate in NPTA to facilitate their efforts to establish a strong and profitable distribution network and stay abreast of trends impacting the distribution channel.

Definition of Service Provider Member:

Organizations that provide services, not products for resale, to companies in the paper distribution channel.

Why should a service provider join NPTA?

Paper distribution companies belong to NPTA to enhance their leadership development, competitive advantage and bottom line. Thus, if wholesale paper distributors represent an important customer group for your product or service, active participation in NPTA is a cost- and time-efficient means of building distributor relations, increasing knowledge about distribution trends and ultimately growing your distributor sales.

In a word it's access. We unite the leading distributors from across North America and help to facilitate your ability to access them. You could travel across the continent attempting to get an audience with the principles of these paper distribution companies or you can attend an NPTA event and meet with them all at one time.

Developing strong relationships with the distribution community and fully understanding their needs today as well as in the coming years is vital to the success of any provider of distributor-oriented goods and services. Communication is key. Information is invaluable. Personally knowing the players in the paper distribution community will make a significant impact on your success.

NPTA connects your firm to the paper distribution channel. We make your life easier. We unite your customers and potential customers. We educate your customers so that they are stronger. We create an environment which is conducive to effective communication between you and the paper distributor community. We stimulate innovative thinking which can solve your most challenging distribution challenges.
