Sexton Group member’s stories and testimonials. See what they have to say!
“The Sexton office helps us make connections with suppliers and negotiates buying programs for us. I believe working through the buying group provides the product manufacturer with better access to the dealer and gives suppliers a better understanding of the dealer’s needs. Because of that, Sexton is able to negotiate programs that are beneficial to both the retailer and the manufacturer.
It’s essential for us to maintain inventory levels so that we always have what our customers need when they need it. When we encounter inventory problems, the Sexton team will get involved and help work things out for us. Solving the issue is often as simple as the supplier getting back to the Sexton office. And depending on what the issue is, the response time from Sexton is within the same day or the next business day.”

The information and feedback that we get from the Sexton Commodity Wood Council is critical. It allows us to find out exactly what’s happening in the wood industry and how changes in the market impact our business. Rick Royce’s knowledge of the industry and his insights into factors affecting the Canadian market are far more extensive than what we could obtain independently. Rick and the Wood Council provide us with the best market intelligence in the business. And when you factor in their strong negotiation skills, we can be sure our store is providing our customers and contractors with competitively priced wood products that meet their needs.

In terms of helping us out with our suppliers, Steve Buckle at Sexton has played a key roll over the years. We've been working on a large-scale project that has run into unfortunate construction delays. Over the extended course of the project we faced several pricing challenges. Luckily Steve was there to step in and go to bat for us with our suppliers to help us through the challenges. That's a lot to ask of Steve on a long-term project, but it's crucial to our bottom line, especially in an unstable supply market.

UFA is one of Canada's largest co-operatives servicing rural Alberta. Agriculture is something we take great pride in and providing that service to the rural market is key. We are very focused on connecting with our dealers and providing quality products and service.

Nadine and I would like to take a moment to thank all of the Sexton team for the lovely time we had in New Orleans at the member conference. It was a memorable experience for us. As new members, this was our first member conference with the Sexton Group members and it was an invaluable experience for us. From packages received before the adventure, to flights, to activities, to dinners, to buses, to hotel, to conventions, to meetings, to Mardi Gras world and so on…everything ran smoothly and was a huge success. We were very impressed with the Sexton Group and the vendors that participated.
By the end of the week, we learned what the Sexton Group was really about and who Sexton is. It’s a family. It’s a relationship. We were able to feel the sense of being part of one big family reunion. Everybody was talking to each other, sharing information about business, trips, activities and negotiating with vendors. The vendors were extremely helpful throughout the convention and they played a major role at this member conference. A special thanks to them as well.
Being part of the members meeting provided us with some very useful information that will help us to be more profitable. We are ready to do more business with Sexton Group and their vendors for 2013. Supreme Homes will greatly contribute to the advancement of the Sexton Group as they will do for us as well. It's surely a mutual relationship.
We are looking forward to the next member conference and would recommend attending to all Sexton members.
