NETWORK Services Finalizes Deal With Strategic Market Alliance

January 9, 2020

NETWORK® Services Co.  and Strategic Market Alliance (SMA) have officially finalized their agreement to form a global member-owned distribution organization.

The deal, announced late last year, calls for the newly combined company to operate under the name Network Services Co. with current NETWORK President and CEO Alan Tomblin serving as its CEO. 

“Local representation and support from our distributors is our special sauce, our lifeblood, that allows us to deliver true value in the supply chain,” said Tomblin. “Joining forces as a single distribution entity extends our competitive advantage to an even broader range of organizations. Expanding the reach of our formula for success will drive stronger results for customers, member distributors, and supplier partners.”

NETWORK® Services Co. is a US$10 billion company providing customized distribution services. The Schaumburg, Illinois-based company has service representatives, fleets, and distribution centers in more than 650 locations in 34 countries. For more information, visit
