Home News BBG names Emser its exclusive tile vendor

Los Angeles—Emser Tile has been named the exclusive and first tile vendor partner for Builders Buying Group (BBG)— a collective purchasing organization made up of hundreds of independent residential builders and developers in the U.S.—in a multi-year agreement.

“Builders Buying Group is an ideal partner because it was created by builders and for builders,” said Wendy Williams, vice president builder division, Emser Tile. “As a result, they understand the challenges and rewards builders encounter throughout a job, from start to finish.”

Frank Arnone, national sales manager, Emser Tile, added that in addition to making the best decisions for its membership, BBG understands the needs of its partnering suppliers. “Their role is to be part of the solution, which aligns nicely with our own continued mission to deliver unparalleled service and a dynamic selection of products,” he said. “Through our own Emser showroom locations and our network of dealer partners, we are excited to work together and build a strong and successful relationship.”

According to Emser, because BBG members pool their purchasing power, the group can negotiate hard cost reductions and volume incentives on quality construction materials from leading manufacturers and distributors. In return, BBG provides meaningful value to its suppliers. The group’s growing network of members and vendors continues to provide mutual benefits, helping each to maintain market-leading positions. Ultimately, BBG said it is its mission to add to the bottom line of its membership through product and service programs meant to provide significant savings.

“The strength of Builders Buying Group is our group as a whole,” said Kevin Obert, director of programs, BBG. “Our members are entrepreneurs, craftspeople and family-owned businesses who build semi-custom homes—and they look to us as a true extension of their purchasing department. As a result, we seek partnerships with companies like Emser Tile. Emser has a strong national network and can service all areas in which we operate. Their positive attitude aligns with our own mentality, and their product offering is second to none.”
