NPS Corporation joins IBC

IBC announced that NPS Corporation of Green Bay, Wisconsin, has joined the IBC industrial buying group as a preferred supplier.

In partnering with IBC, NPS Corporation will provide its full range of premium, standard and value tiered spill control products such as sorbent pads, spill kits, socks, wipers and booms plus towel and tissue products to end users served by IBC’s network of independent distributors. Brand names owned by NPS Corporation include Spilfyter, Spilhyder and Streetfyter in the spill control category and Merfin in the towel and tissue category.

“NPS is the number one provider of spill control and facilities use paper products for industrial, safety and janitorial applications. Their products directly protect workers and the environment while indirectly increasing productivity and improving downtime,” said Mark R. Higgins, business development, relations and recruitment. “We are very pleased to give our independent distributor members access to NPS’s extensive array of products for the benefit of the end user segments and industrial supply chains we serve.”

“Our strength as a company, and really what allows us to provide a quality program to our distributor partners, is that NPS exists as a vertically integrated manufacturer, controlling the entire production process, enabling us to provide more consistent quality, competitively priced products to our distributor partners,” said Ben Brumfield, senior vice president of global sales and marketing for NPS.

Industrial buyers served by the IBC network of independent distributors represent the automotive, aerospace, power generation, food and beverage, medical, chemical and paper industries, among others. In the U.S., it is estimated that independent distributors account for nearly two-thirds of all industrial supply chain sales.
