Meier Supply has been an active member of ARW since 1960. They enthusiastically participate in the association's Heads Up program and participate in the annual Wholesaler Profit Survey. Frank Meier, Jr. also serves as Chairman of the ARW Statistics Committee. "We participate in the PROFIT survey and Heads-Up program because they are both invaluable business tools," said Franks. "Unless you can see what your peers are doing, you have no way of knowing if your current performance is due to economic or weather conditions of if you are just losing market share," he said. "The Heads-Up Report helps me measure our company's performance against the industry as a whole and versus a regional monthly average. "We also always participate in the Wholesaler Profit Survey. We'd be foolish not to. It would cost me thousands of dollars to get such an individual profile and independent analysis of my financials. ARW offers this free to survey participants and it's completely confidential. How can you pass that up?" he asked. "You have to pay attention today to what's happening in the industry – and ARW helps my company do that."
