Diamond Grid and ACE Hardware In Agreement
John Horjes announced that Diamond Grid is an approved vendor for Ace Hardware. “We are pleased to join Ace Hardware as a vendor to their many locations in the United States, Canada, and around the world,” said Horjes. “Our EDI system is currently ‘on-boarding’ with Ace, and we expect to be available for purchase within thirty days.”
Ace Hardware Corporation is the second-largest dealer-owned cooperative in the United States. The co-op pools buying and promotions for its 5,100 local hardware, home center, and lumber stores located in all fifty of the United States as well as in sixty-five foreign countries and territories. Ace’s emphasis on service and modern retailing techniques has helped locally owned and operated Ace retail stores confront intense competition from such home improvement powerhouses as Home Depot and Builders Square. The co-op manufactures its own line of paints and also supplies other products under the Ace brand.
Diamond Grid is a global market leader in surface stabilization and erosion control systems. With manufacturing in twelve and distribution in more than 20 countries, Diamond Grid can be found being used in many projects and industries worldwide, including DIY (do-it-yourself), landscape, construction, golf, equestrian, live stock, state, federal, roads, aviation, oil, power, mining, marine, transportation, and freight forwarding.
