An Interview With Ranson Roussel, President of The Distribution Point
An industry veteran who cut his teeth at Texas-based Morrison Supply, Ranson Roussel was responsible for one of the PHCP industry’s most notable recent startups when he founded Birmingham, AL-based The Distribution Point (TDP) in 2003, as a master distributor supplying plumbing wholesalers with an extensive inventory of leading plumbing brands.
The ensuing years have been economic hell for many of TDP’s customers. However, a recent conversation with TDP personnel revealed a rather significant turnaround. Master distributors have a unique perch from which to observe industry trends, so we decided to get some input from TDP’s president about issues impacting his business and the industry as a whole.
