New Distributor to Join Distribution America

Distribution America has announced the addition of wholesale distributor PACOA to its membership. Headquartered in Port Washington N.Y., PACOA services independent hardware, paint and lumber retailers throughout much of New York, New England, Pennsylvania and New Jersey.

“Adding PACOA as a member gives us the opportunity to consolidate vendor programs and strengthen the buying power of both PACOA and the DA members,” Distribution America President Dave Christmas said. “The goal is to have a cohesive group of regional distributors who through the sharing of ideas, best practices and buying power, help the independent retailer compete more effectively in today’s complex marketplace. PACOA is a great fit for our organization and all of our members are enthusiastic about the addition to our group.”

PACOA will have full access to all of Distribution America’s buying, marketing, advertising and retail profitability programs. Steve Geismar, president of PACOA, said he believes the combination of national buying power and retail solutions available will “better equip us with the strategic tools we need to continue to grow our business, and keep our customers relevant in their local markets.” Family owned PACOA has been serving the needs of independent retailers in the Northeast for more than 40 years.
