Anixter Is Not At Fault For Selling Direct, It's The Manufacturer's Decision

Just seeing this thread now but I suspect the discussion is still valid. I can only speak to my 10 years of working with Anixter (we also buy through CDW and others both directly and through integrators). I couldn't disagree more with the premise that Anixter is at fault here.

First, although I am listed as an end-user we are in fact a self integrator which sub contracts to other...
