VMA Members Lead MDM Top Industrial PVF Distributors List

Modern Distribution Management (MDM) recently published its Top Distributors list for 2017. Four of the top 5 distributors in the Industrial PVF category; MRC Global, NOW Inc., Wolseley Industrial Group and FloWorks International; are currently VMA members.

“While oil & gas markets have started to stabilize, the point of stabilization is below half of the price peak seen just a few years ago. As a result, many distributors that operate in this space are either streamlining operations to reduce exposure to the volatility or further diversifying the markets they serve to offset the challenging conditions,” MDM wrote.
