CSS Distribution Group, Inc. (CSS) was founded in June, 2006. CSS has built its reputation and success on its philosophies regarding its Team and its Customers. Its motto is “Customer First.”. CSS is a national distributor of “End of the Line” products, which includes pallets, miscellaneous packaging, gaylords and packaging equipment. CSS targets “Multi Location National Accounts” ( MLNA’s ) as their primary customer base and excels in creating national account programs to help MLNA’s leverage their spend, reduce vendors, consolidate SKU’s and improve their company’s EBITDA.
CSS’ Competitive Advantage
Opportunity: In most cases, multi-location national manufacturers have consolidated purchasing to drive cost reductions & efficiencies in their material purchases. This has resulted in a disconnect, where the factories no longer have the ability to drive and change innovation. CSS has identified a unique opportunity with “end-of-line” packaging solutions to reduce costs and drive efficiencies. Further, factory managers and engineers typically do not have the time or resources to tackle this issue and CSS can act as a “free” resource.
Solution: CSS has bridged that gap. CSS uses a detailed, “hands-on” approach to understand the needs of each plant and is able to provide integrated, innovative solutions that support the cost reduction and efficiency goals of both purchasing and the plant. CSS also acts as the liaison to implement consolidation, standardization and leveraging the dollars spent across factories through the offering “end-of-line” packaging solutions. CSS’ employees end up knowing more about the plants than the purchasing arm, thus creating the need that enables CSS to deliver value, create trust and become an indispensable partner. To the partner company, CSS appears as a “free” resource that lowers costs and drives efficiencies.
