Why Should Distributors Join Trade Hounds?

Trade Hounds connects electricians with distributors to solve two of the construction industry's biggest problems. 

  1. Electricians lose money when they waste time searching and sourcing materials.
  2. Distributors lose customers because they can't afford to build an app that can compete with big box retailers. 
Trade Hounds offers one platform to easily reach customers who are looking to buy what you sell.
