Delta Q Inc.
Delta-Q, Inc. represents fifteen manufacturers with over twenty highly respected brands and $35M of sales in the professional plumbing and HVAC market in Southern California and Clark County, Nevada. We employ 13 outside salespeople covering the wholesale, commercial, showroom and builder market channels. Our 6 inside salespeople provide customer service, technical support, engineering support, project quotations and submittals. We also maintain 15,000 square feet of warehouse space for both consigned and buy/sell inventory. Over the last five years our company has achieved a double-digit sales growth rate, and increased from thirteen employees in 2012 to twenty-two in 2017.
Our management team is committed to working closely with each of our manufacturer principals to design and execute thorough marketing and sales plans in all market channels. We emphasize growth by increasing share for our existing manufacturers rather than adding names to our line card. We only take on new lines after carefully evaluating synergy with our existing lines, and how we can add value to that principal’s strategy for growth in our market.
