For over 50 years, Distribution Management has been perfecting the art of order fulfillment and inventory management.
Starting first as a wholesale print supplies distributor, drop-shipping ink and toner on behalf of our reseller clients and later entering the 3rd party fulfillment space, providing omni-channel order fulfillment to manufacturers and merchants.
Clients on both sides of our business have unique needs, but at the core they are the same — fast, efficient and accurate order fulfillment that upholds their reputation with their customers.
That’s what we do.
Tom Fleming, founder of Distribution Management, spent five years of his career selling typewriters for IBM in downtown St. Louis, Missouri. From this experience, he recognized the demand for replacement ribbons and in 1972, All-state Business Machines (ABM) was born as a reseller of typewriter ribbons. With the help of a growing group of entrepreneurial-minded people, Tom went on to build what is today a national distribution and fulfillment organization operating in 6 locations under a loyal, tenured leadership team.
Celebrating 50 years
Today, both divisions of our company are branded as Distribution Management
We believe we are stronger as one team with one goal — to serve our colleagues, clients and community with integrity and grit.
Taking care of our clients and their customers is key to our mission. After all, their business is our business.
We care for each other, our community, our clients and our business. It’s at the core of everything we do.
