Multimillion-Dollar Distributor Joins Proforma
On July 30, Cleveland-based Proforma announced that multimillion-dollar distributor Frank Flandreau has joined the Proforma Network as owner of Proforma/FSU. With more than 25 years of experience in the industry, Flandreau is transitioning his Sanford, Florida-based business, Forms & Supplies Unlimited Inc. to Proforma.
As a Proforma Owner, Flandreau and his sales team will offer customers an expanded product offering, including e-commerce capabilities. The company will also be backed by Proforma's proven system and comprehensive marketing, business development, accounting and administrative resources. With this support, Flandreau is aiming to triple his sales from nearly $4 million to $12 million within the next three years.
"Our strengths are customer service and developing unique solutions to meet our customers' needs," said Flandreau. "By joining Proforma, I can focus even more attention on my customers, while representatives from the Proforma Support Center Staff complete the other tasks on my behalf. I look forward to utilizing many of the programs to grow my business. I checked out all my opportunities in this industry and easily concluded that only Proforma offers the breadth of products and services we need; only Proforma has almost 40 members of its Multi-Million Dollar Club for me to network with; and only Proforma has the sophisticated technology platform we need to sell big programs to big businesses."
After working for seven years in the print and promotional products industry, Flandreau opened Forms & Supplies Unlimited Inc. in 1992. Since then, he has grown his business to nearly $4 million in annual sales. Today, the company operates with nine employees.
"I'm excited about what the future holds. With the strength of Proforma behind us, I know we are on our way to meeting our goals," said Flandreau.
