About Us

The United Group® (TUG) is a national, Member-owned sales and marketing group for independent, B2B distributors of Jan/San, Packaging, Foodservice and Safety products and equipment. Our Members recapture profits by earning rebate dollars on their purchases from United Group Preferred Suppliers. Our Members are diverse in size and longevity, yet united in their common desire to be more profitable and more effective in their respective endeavors.

All Suppliers are chosen and vetted by Members prior to introduction to the group. The United Group team seeks to foster and strengthen relationships between Suppliers and Members via a transparent and collaborative culture.

Our Members consider United Group membership an indispensable component of their annual, quarterly and even daily business plans. Our Suppliers are some of TUG’s best supporters and often recommend us to their customers. The United Group is a friendly, value-oriented organization that one Member described as a group “of character,” a testament to our standards and practices of simplicity and honesty.
