Independent Suppliers Group Distributes Q4 2021 Rebates &
Relaunches “Buy Direct, Sell Brands” Marketing Initiative
Rosemont, IL – April 26, 2022 – Independent Suppliers Group (ISG) is pleased to announce that, as of April 22, 2022, it has distributed Q4 2021 rebates of $10,213,198.37. Included in this distribution are both Q4 2021 and annual year-end rebates.
“I am happy to report that ISG distributed the 2021 Q4 rebates to all members that earned rebates through any of ISG’s centrally billed programs,” said Jordan Kudler, ISG Board of Directors Chairman. “I am pleased that the group support through 2021 was as strong as it was, in spite of the challenges members faced, resulting from the COVID19 Pandemic. All in all, the group faired very well. Now that the Q4 rebate distribution is behind us, we can all look forward to receiving our 2022 Q1 rebates in mid-June.”
ISG is also pleased to announce the relaunch of its “Buy Direct, Sell Brands” marketing initiative, which is designed to help ISG members stay competitive, while maximizing rebates and their gross margin.
Through this initiative, ISG members will have access to tools like the Cost Comparator and Purchase Summary Report, to help increase their direct buy spend.
“As most ISG members know, I have been a strong proponent and user of ISG’s long storied RDC program that initially launched in 2004,” said Jordan Kudler. “While the RDC Program was a great way to buy direct, S.P. Richards announced in February, that they will not be renewing the contract to provide RDC support. Therefore, ISG has relaunched the “Buy Direct, Sell Brands” campaign, which aligns with the groups fundamental purpose and encourages our membership to promote and buy directly from the suppliers that support the group with rebates and other programs.”
