We collectively support only the best suppliers in the business, so we achieve the most advantageous relationships for our Members. This strategy is critical, because buying ‘right’ means much more that just paying a low price.
Consolidation: our suppliers, our customers, and even our competing contractors get it. When we get a better price on the cost of supplies, we can better compete.We have developed supply programs to protect and improve the profitability of the Membership and provide a competitive advantage in the marketplace. We’ve done this in a way that adds value to every link in the industry chain, from manufacturing to the customer.
Additionally, we offer Members a consulting service that includes fulfillment of a detailed checklist to ensure that you’re maximizing procurement of your product offering.
We’re in the business of bringing big profits to your business, so we offer discounted business services aimed at reducing your organizations’ daily operational expenses. We do this by leveraging the buying power of our Membership, as well as the other CCA divisions, to negotiate discounts most businesses would not have access to on their own.
On average, small to medium-sized businesses are saving 20% annually on their bottom line using the dozens and dozens of national programs we offer.

The cost savings programs are specifically designed to help small businesses reduce costs and increase profitability.
