BlueTarp Financial and hardlines distributor Orgill have announced a partnership to provide credit and financial services to independent hardware and home improvement retailers.
Denise Sullivan, Orgill’s retail programs manager, said the additional financial services are meant to help strengthen relationships between retailers and contractors.
“Retailers will be able to offer more credit to contractors while increasing their cash flow. BlueTarp takes over the backroom duties plus provides contractors with a 24/7 online tracking system and the ability to earn rewards for purchases,” she explained.
BlueTarp Financial, based in Charlotte, N.C., offers commercial trade credit services to more than 1,500 building material dealers and over 30,000 contractors across the United States and Canada. Memphis, Tenn.-based Orgill serves more than 5,000 customers worldwide.
