About The Edge Group
The Edge Group, founded in 1990, is a distributor-owned buying and marketing group with the strength, inventory, and sales equivalent to those of national distributors. Edge founder, Ron Meyers, had previously owned an electronics distribution company and struggled to get the right products at competitive prices. It was this experience that inspired him to start a distributor owned buying group to help independent distributors team up with leading manufacturers and compete more effectively.
Today, The Edge Group represents more than 200 supplier lines serving the datacom, security, low voltage, AV, electronic MRO, and electronic OEM industries. The group has over 1200 stocking locations throughout the U.S. and Canada with more than $1.2 billion in annual buying power. Learn more at: http://www.edge-group.com.
