MDM Names Top Distributors in Five Sectors

Modern Distribution Management's first annual MDM Market Leaders and Distribution Landscape Report is now available. The report includes lists of the top distributors by revenue in each sector.

Wolseley came out on top for the industrial sector, with HD Supply and Grainger following in the Nos. 2 and 3 spots respectively. Forty-two companies were named as top distributors in the industrial sector. See the full list here.

MDM also published the top 25 electrical distributors by revenue, the top 10 building material/construction distributors, the top 12 HVAC/Plumbing/PVF distributors, and the top 10 Power Transmission/Bearing distributors. We also present summary lists for electronics, pharmaceuticals and plastics.

"The year 2009 was a rough year across the board for the distributors on our list, but more positive signs of recovery are starting to appear in 2010. Most of these distributors told us that despite the declines they saw in 2009, they have already started to see improvements in the first half of 2010," said Tom Gale, publisher of Modern Distribution Management.

"This report is a reflection of the past year while documenting where the distribution industry is today."
