Become a BMD Alliance Partner

Buy Manufacturers Direct (BMD) is a collaborative alliance of some of the world’s leading surface preparation equipment and consumable manufacturers who are perpetually seeking better opportunities to reach, sell, and educate their customers.

While many of us still utilize traditional bricks and mortar distribution channels or sales teams, we recognize that not all distributors are created equal. Buy Manufacturers Direct is an opportunity for manufacturers to participate and control the sales, marketing, promotion, and education of their own products to targeted audiences while reaching every geographical corner of the United States.

Our innovative approach is unique and, in most cases, provides the customer with a better buying experience while earning the manufacturer higher profits than traditional distribution.

Our Current Partners

Substrate Technology, Inc.

STI logoSubstrate Technology Corporation is a privately held, family run business that has been in business for over 20 years. STI manufactures and sells the Prep/Master® line of commercial floor grinders and polishers. They also carry accessory equipment, diamond consumables, and chemicals that compliment the Prep/Master® line.

STI was founded by their experience in the commercial floor preparation industry, which dates over 30 years ago. In that industry, they learned that little or no equipment existed that could perform concrete surface preparation in the fashion or timeliness that was demanded, so they built our own machines to do the job.

Existing equipment was redesigned from the inside out and tooling was engineered from scratch. Their R&D was committed to develop the best diamond tool technology for yielding the fastest possible product at the lowest possible cost per square foot.

IMPACTS Americas logoIMPACTS Americas is the exclusive North American distributor for IMPACTS GmbH, a shot blasting equipment manufacturer located outside of Cologne, Germany.

Airtec AG logoEveryone is familiar with the efficiency and precision of Swiss-made products: watches, clocks, elevators, and Bluetooth technology, to name a few. What you may not know is the world’s most productive and durable concrete scarifiers are also engineered and manufactured in Switzerland.

Airtec is a second-generation owned and operated company located just outside of Basil, Switzerland. Historically, Airtec has been, and continues to be, a global leader in surface preparation innovation and technology. The Wyser family helped pioneer modern day concrete scarifying equipment utilizing various power sources, introducing concrete shaving technology, and developing advanced cutter composites.

While many of their competitors have conceded to building and importing from Asia, Airtec has stayed true to their roots and continues to design and manufacture in Europe. Quality may not come cheap; however, we are confident you will discover that owning an Airtec machine increases production, decreases down time, and outlasts competitive equipment in your fleet. In short, you get what you pay for and owning quality isn’t something you find on the sales rack!

BMD is proud not only to represent Airtec scarifiers, but also their entire family of products, including the recently launched planetary grinder line. Eliminate broken belts, sheared pins, and malfunctioning electronics by enjoying Swiss precision in a planetary grinder!

Unlike many of their more recognized competitors, Airtec planetary grinders are not built generically to accommodate any market, they’re engineered and built especially for the U.S. market and U.S. power. They’re built to withstand jobsite abuse and out perform other models. So if you’re looking for an alternative to mainstream planetary grinders, we are confident the Airtec line will prove itself over and over.

Roll GmbH

Roll GmnH logoEngineered and built in Germany, the Roll family of products stands as a symbol of pride, ingenuity, and quality.

While the Roll name is widely recognized and respected throughout Europe, BMD is proud to be their first distributor within the United States.

Roll perfected the walk-behind floor scraper track propulsion system as an alternative to traditional wheel motors. While wheels tend to bog down and spin in place when faced with hardwood applications, the Roll track system replicates the motion of a military tank and, quite literally, plows through even the most resilient of materials.

When partnered with enhanced steel and metal composite blades, these unique floor scrapers provide high performance production accompanied with durability and reliability. Unlike its domestic competition, Roll floor scrapers are easily transported in and out of vehicles, or up and down stairs. They are specifically designed for one-man operation and do not require multiple laborers, cumbersome and expensive ramps, or hydraulic lifts to mobilize. Give these units a try and we guarantee you’ll be hooked on Roll!
