The council’s goal is to be the communicating link between manufacturers and distributors by providing continuous training, sales, and marketing essential to maintaining strong and lasting business relationships. Reviews and discusses relevant issues and concerns.

Sometimes Manufacturers Rep team needs the assistance of HARDI Council members. We ask that all of HARDI’s Council members make it a priority to contribute when these issues arise.
