Sunbelt Marketing, Inc. was founded in 1976 as a Buy-Sell manufacturers’ representative for NIBCO, Inc. Today, Sunbelt serves as a manufacturers’ representative/master distributor of plumbing, piping and HVAC/R products to traditional wholesalers. Sunbelt uses technical expertise, extensive sales coverage, and superior logistics to exceed the expectations of wholesalers and manufacturers. While selling strictly to the stocking wholesaler, Sunbelt Marketing spends a significant amount of time engaging with contractors and specifiers to create additional demand for products.
Boundless Commitment to Our Employees & Customers
Sunbelt is employee-owned, giving the term “ownership” a sense of true accountability at all levels of our company. Our employee/owners are long-term associates who possess a lifelong commitment to the success of Sunbelt and its’ customers. Commitments are met and promises kept.
When contacting Sunbelt, you engage with an owner! Every Sunbelt associate enjoys ownership in our company through our ESOP program. This program is the catalyst that causes our employees to go above and beyond as part of their everyday routine. 24 Hour or less shipment of orders is Sunbelt’s norm, not the exception!
