WFCA teams up with Savings4Members

Home News WFCA teams up with Savings4Members

Dalton—The World Floor Covering Association, WFCA, has formed an alliance with Savings4Members, one of the largest member-owned cooperatives in North America. The aim is to dramatically enhance the purchasing power of WFCA’s independent business owner members, taking away the competitive advantage previously enjoyed by larger conglomerates and big-box stores.

“WFCA is always looking for ways to empower our members and help them enhance their businesses,” said Scott Humphrey, CEO. “Savings4Members is an ideal partner for our members as they work to arm independent business owners with the tools necessary to drive down business costs, save time, streamline communications and increase profitability. The new alliance will empower WFCA members to meet competition of all shapes and sizes, including big box stores.”

Savings4Members, which boasts a 30-year history and is backed by CCA Global, is built on hundreds of partnerships with associations, manufacturers and franchisees across the country. Together, Savings4Members participants offer a combined annual buying clout exceeding $300 billion. Through their network of partners, Savings4Members offers substantial savings to members on business services, products and everyday benefits including: credit card processing, payroll, shipping, wireless services, waste and recycling services, fuel, office supplies, wireless and more. The group’s members routinely save up to $15,000 each year by leveraging the organization’s tools and shared benefits.

The deal with Savings4Members is the latest in a recent string of moves the WFCA has made to benefit members. Earlier this year the organization purchased the Floor Covering Business To Business Association (fcB2B) and all of its assets as a means to help accelerate members’ transition into the digital age. WFCA estimates the fcB2B model could save flooring companies more than $20 million annually.

Prior to that, the WFCA announced a partnership with the North American Association of Floor Covering Distributors (NAFCD) that is focused on increasing participation in WFCA training offerings by leveraging NAFCD members’ local relationships with retailers. WFCA and NAFCD plan to facilitate and streamline industry communications through both associations, expand support for industry advocacy issues and secure potential new members through their respective member bases.
