Promo Marketing, the Philadelphia-based source of product and marketing information for distributor sales professionals, is proud to announce the industry's Top 50 Distributors of 2014.

This is a 7 percent increase over last year, when the company came in at No. 2 on the Top Distributor's list with annual sales of $322 million.
When asked via video interview what it meant that Proforma was No. 1 this year, Greg Muzzillo, founder of Proforma, had the following to say:
"I’ve just learned that Proforma is a top distributor in the industry, and I’ve been asked, 'What does that mean?' Well, at Proforma it means we’re grateful. Gratitude is that attitude that gets each and all of us more of what we want in our lives and in our businesses. So at Proforma, we’re grateful for our 750 member owners who are driving our sales toward half of a billion dollars and beyond, we’re grateful for our 150 support staff team members who are supporting our owners in accomplishing their dreams, and we’re grateful for our supplier partners, without whom, none of it would be possible. What does it mean to be a top distributor? It means we’re grateful at Proforma.”
