John,

I have a number of contacts to provide but ask how you plan to manage (e.g. Bill went from ABC supply to XYZ...")?

I am looking for firms, not people. Like "The Buddy Boys" serving the Beltway with a line card of Arecont, Exacq, etc.

North America?

Anywhere is fine.

Midlantic Marketing covers PA, NJ, DE. Chesapeake Marketing covers MD, VA, DC. Primary line is Bosch for CCTV, intrusion, fire, and access control.

ASR covers more of the Mid Atlantic region. They only cover the southern part of New Jersey. Maybe it would be best to differentiate the North East rep firms from the Mid Atlantic based rep firms?

I changed the section header from "Northeastern US" to "Northeastern / Midatlantic US"

There's a lot of reps overlapping those areas so it might be more confusing to split them up.

Premiere Systems - Californa - Panasonic / BCD

Campion Sales - Arecont ( among others) South

Added.

Good list and reference.

Here's one more in the Midwest (Flir, Video insight, Paxton, Code Blue, SDC...)

And this one (Panasonic, Exacq, Aiphone, talk-a-phone, Winsted...)

In the Pacific Northwest:

2. Foundation Planning Group (www.fpgsells.com) - slightly different business model that focuses on corporate end users.

GP Marketing added. The other one (FPG) is not. In particular, the website is extremely vague and it's not clear they fit in a list of manufacturer reps.

PLEASE learn to link correctly.

A lot of you link like this: http://example.com/product/model/xyx.html

This wastes space, disrupts the flow of the comment and looks ugly.

Instead do: XYZ model. You type in the text ('XYZ Model'), then highlight it and then click the paperclick button at the top right of the editor.

You then get an overlay, type in the URL and click OK, like so:

John,

Have you considered Anixter. http://www.anixter.com/north-america/us/en.html

They are more of a distributor.

Companies like Anixter, ScanSource, Greybar, TechData, Ingram Micro, etc. are distributors, not manufacturer reps.

Key differences between the two groups are:

  • Manufacturer reps do not actually sell products to customers. They are regional agents who advocate and support sales. Indeed, often a manufacturer rep may advise on product selection but the integrator buys through the distributor.
  • Reps are typically regional while distributors are typically national/international.
  • Distributors generally carry a far broader array of product lines than a rep. Manufacturer reps are typically limited to one manufacturer per category (e.g., you'll never see an OnSSI rep also rep Exacq or a Sony rep also rep Arecont Vision). The rep is supposed to be loyal / focused on a single manufacturer per category.
