MESSAGE FROM OUR CEO

"UMS didn’t just push the boundaries of the status quo, we redefined the current thinking that suppliers had about independents, which perceived these stores as large warehouses with absolutely no customer experience, no service and no customer loyalty apart from pricing.

 

Our model provided a platform from which independent store owners could effectively compete in all ways against the corporates."
