We Supply America — an online video series documenting the human stories of distribution leaders and their workforce — is back for a third season of profiling distributors across the U.S.
On June 7, Dirk Beveridge, executive producer at We Supply America, and his team hit the road for their annual summer tour. The third season will again showcase the distribution firms Beveridge visits during the tour.
In the first two seasons, Beveridge traveled over 31,000 miles and profiled 59 distributors.
“When we visited distributors across America to champion the noble calling of distribution, we also found distributors are a Force for Good, making a real impact on their society, partners, investors, customers and employees (SPICE),” Beveridge said in a news release. “We Supply America has allowed me to narrow in on the Employee aspect of this. Hearing heartfelt stories in the middle of warehouses has led me to believe that these businesses have a superpower – their family culture – and they are doubling down on that by reimagining what it means to be a purpose-driven employer.
“We’re excited and honored to highlight companies in this year’s docuseries that emulate what it means to be a Force for Good. By placing a focus on growing their people, they are growing their business, and ultimately their impact on the world.”
“I don’t think anyone has been able to articulate what we do as distributors as well as you are doing on this tour you are on,” said Paul Kennedy, CEO of Dakota Supply Group, which was featured on last year’s tour. “I felt that we needed to be a part of it – to be a part of the story you’re telling. Helping our team understand the important role they fill in contributing to building America, that was great.”
