Delta Lumber Do it Center of Whiteford, Md., has entered a partnership with Portland, Maine-based BlueTarp Financial, the trade credit and marketing services provider for the building supply industry.
The 93-year-old Delta Lumber is owned and operated by David H. Galbreath, nephew of Robert Galbreath, who co-founded the business in 1920. The company is now collaborating with BlueTarp on a customized full-service financial program that covers the trade credit needs of its customers, including applications, service and collections. BlueTarp will provide guaranteed cash flow by receiving funds on a pre-determined schedule.
Larry Dawson, general manager of Delta Lumber, said: “Partnering with BlueTarp will allow us to do what we do best -- provide a high level service to our customers. As important, it will help us grow and become more profitable.”
At BlueTarp, CEO Scott Simpson says its services help keep things simple for customers.
“Many independent second-generation dealers are choosing BlueTarp to help them grow the family business because we’ve built a strong reputation in the industry for providing seamless service to their customers, while positioning the dealers for growth,” Simpson said. “Delta recognizes that our approach is to make the transition to BlueTarp smooth so that there is no disruption to customers.”
