Over the past two decades, FS Distribution has risen to prominence in the distribution of analog photographic materials. When the photo market embraced digital photography in the early 2000’s, the need for a focused and dedicated supplier of analog materials was not only necessary, but vital for the continued preservation and affordability of film photography. Through its distribution efforts FSD has separated itself from its competition by making abundantly clear its aggressive commitment - and ability - to go the extra mile to meet the needs of its customers, regardless of size or volume.
In order to fulfill these philosophies, FS Distribution has moved decisively to ensure the success of manufacturer, dealer and customer. FS Distribution places orders with their manufacturer/partners that are consistent with the manufacturer's production capabilities, rather than the inefficient ordering patterns of the now obsolete previous methods of distribution. Then - to benefit the dealer - FS Distribution's 21st Century Distribution Business Model streamlined the entire supply channel from manufacturer to dealer in a way that has helped everyone not just survive, but flourish. This creation of a whole new model of distribution to the dealer, one that addresses the realities of today's business, allows even the smallest retailer to keep track of sales and promotions. FS Distribution introduced its revolutionary order-what-you-need-when-you-need-it policy to make the one-piece price exactly the same as the pallet price. No more bloated inventories and inflated accounts receivable.
FS Distribution also insures that the spirit of the cooperation is present for the film photographer or darkroom consumer. Understanding the needs and wants of the dealer is paramount in FS Distribution's innovative approach. The unique part of this new system lies in the fact that it works just as well, just as efficiently and just as profitably for the small dealer as it does the biggest dealer. For FS Distribution, it's all about servicing the customer so there is consistent, reliable and affordable supply.
