Gateway Safety was awarded the President’s Club Recognition for achievement in 2014 by the Industrial Buyers Group (IBC). Suppliers and distributors are recognized by IBC for their contributions over the year and rated on percentage growth. The award was presented at IBC’s annual meeting, which was held in Chicago last October.
“We annually recognize the distinguished suppliers who support the regional independent distributors who are part of the IBC marketing group,” said Rich Poole, IBC’s Industrial Division vice president. “Gateway’s support of our distributors’ sales initiatives and marketing programs earned them this distinction. We are proud to have Gateway as one of our select Preferred Suppliers, and are proud to recognize their contributions to our organization.”
Gateway Safety has been an IBC Preferred Supplier since 2010, partnering with IBC distribution members to provide safety products in eye, face, head, hearing and disposable respiratory protection. Matthew Love, Gateway Safety’s vice president, attended the meeting and accepted the award on the company’s behalf.
“We feel honored and are thankful to IBC for recognizing us with this award,” said Love. “Gateway Safety’s success within the IBC organization can be attributed to the great relationships we have formed with our IBC distribution partners. Safety equipment is a great fit for IBC distributors, since categories like eye and face protection can really complement an industrial product line,” continued Love. “Our achievement with IBC shows that safety products remain a growing market need.”
IBC is one of North America’s leading alliances of industrial, bearing and power transmission, electrical, and subassembly distributors with over 550 branch locations.
