Arley Wholesale, Inc., the Scranton, Pennsylvania-based supplier of tile, stone and sundry materials, has entered into a strategic alliance with flooring and installation supplies distributor Salesmaster Flooring Solutions.
"Our strength with porcelain and ceramic products in the residential market merged with Salesmaster’s strength in resilient floor covering as well as their offering of substrate solutions in the commercial market make this an ideal fit," said Arley President Scott Levy.
In tandem, the companies will expand distribution throughout the East Coast with a concentrated effort for Salesmaster on commercial specifications and additional products into Arley’s residential customers. Each will remain independently owned with its own personnel and fleets. All decisions by each company will continue to be made independently.
“We will be offering our existing customers an all-encompassing flooring source and solution, which includes quality products in the porcelain and ceramic market," said Tony Giannattasio, executive vice president, Salesmaster. "The aligning of our companies’ respective strengths will better serve our combined marketplace and deepen our roots throughout the Northeast."
