With communities across the country battling coronavirus — and many consumers demanding safety protocols at retail stores — personal protective equipment (PPE) and sanitizing products still remain essential for most BrandSource dealers.

Joining the group’s resource ranks is GoodEarth Products, a 24-year-old manufacturer and distributor of PPE, cleaning supplies and personal care amenities. Under a newly forged partnership with AVB, the New Jersey-based company is providing BrandSource members with off-invoice discounts of 10 percent below the company’s standard price for sanitizing wipes and disposable gloves, and 20 percent for all other products including paper, cloth and KN95 face masks, and gel and liquid hand sanitizer. (Note: Professional-grade electrostatic chemical sprayers are not included in the discount program.)

All inventory is available for immediate shipping except for disposable gloves, for which pre-orders are now being taken for mid-September delivery.

According industry veteran Rick Albuck, Vice President of Sales and Marketing, GoodEarth is a fast-growing business that attributes its success to “excellent customer service, reliability, flexible systems, and a solutions-oriented approach to serving our customers.”

“Our core competency of procurement, distribution and logistics is without equal,” Albuck continued, and the company boasts of “an unwavering focus on sustainability and cost improvement for customers.”

GoodEarth’s product catalog can be found in the BrandSource Backroom, and members may reach Albuck directly at rick.albuck@goodearthdist.com.

BrandSource, a unit of YSN publisher AVB Inc., is a nationwide buying group for independent appliance, mattress, furniture and CE dealers.
