COMMODITY WOOD INSIGHTS. 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.

NEW ORLEANS. 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.

In the 100 year history of Feldman Timber, our family has experienced many changes in the industry. After recently constructing a brand new 25,000 sq foot retail store complete with a 10,000 sq foot attached drive thru, we recognized the importance of joining a buying group that could ensure growth from both a LBM and Hardlines perspective.
We joined the Sexton Group Ltd in January of 2010. The Sexton Group has always had a reputation for strong building materials supply arrangements. That being said, these programs have exceeded our expectations. Equally impressive to us has been the strong and well thought out Sexton’s Hardlines procurement strategy. Sexton provides us hardline programs that include the best recognized brands at exceptional prices. More importantly, the Sexton staff work with us to implement new ideas and supplier programs with expertise and attention to detail. Commitment such as this to help grow my business is certainly rare in this environment…. but extremely valuable and much appreciated. With the Sexton Group in our corner, Feldman Timber is ready for our next 100 years of business!
