Tando introduces Dealer Express program

Quebec City, Quebec — Derby Building Products, parent company of the Tando brand of products, has announced Tando Dealer Express, a program that allows dealers to order through a distributor, then receive shipments directly.

“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,” said Ralph Bruno, Derby’s CEO. “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 will be heavily promoted with a 4-6-week marketing campaign and dedicated landing page on the website.

Bruno emphasized that Tando Dealer Express was developed based on feedback from distributor and dealer partners and is designed to ensure dealers can get what they need during the pandemic—especially for installers in the middle of a job.

With Tando Dealer Express, dealers can purchase a wide variety of Tando products to be delivered to their location within two weeks. Additional elements of Tando Dealer Express include:

• 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.

• Stocking Dealers will receive pricing advantages over non-stocking dealers with Tando Dealer Express, in addition to all of the other benefits of being a Tando Stocking Dealer.

• All products in all colors of TandoStone are included along with all colors of TandoShake’s RoughSawn (Single and Dual), Rustic Cedar 9, and the iconic Hand Split Shake.

To participate in the program, a dealer/lumberyard simply contacts their Tando Distributor to place a Tando Dealer Express order. Or they can visit the Tando Dealer Express page, or call (844) MY-TANDO for program information and to locate a Tando Distributor in their area.
