WOLF promotes excellence in the building materials industry by providing independent dealers and the contractors and homeowners they serve with differentiated products, reliable logistics and trusted personal service developed over six generations of family leadership.
WOLF has served the residential construction industry since 1843. Through 2010, WOLF was a traditional two-step distributor serving the East Coast. Since then, WOLF has undergone a stunning — and successful — transformation. Today, we’re really an innovative start-up — a dynamic sourcing company that develops and delivers high-value building products to a quickly expanding national and international market.
Unlike smaller distributors, WOLF is able to leverage our size and reach — WOLF is the largest wholesale distributor of kitchen cabinets in the country — to transform the way the supply chain works and to create products that fill voids in the marketplace. The result: new opportunities for independent dealers and their customers.
WOLF has succeeded by ignoring conventional wisdom and harnessing a long-neglected resource: the American manufacturer. By turning exclusively to efficient, U.S.-based manufacturers, WOLF has rapidly introduced a series of high-quality, value-priced products. In a very short time, these U.S.-made products have enabled independent dealers to offer a better alternative to foreign-made products — and big-box competitors.
WOLF hires and develops highly trained, highly motivated employees. Our staff understands WOLF’s primary goal is the success of our customers; in fact, they have significant incentives to achieve that aim. WOLF provides its employees with competitive compensation and great health and retirement benefits, but also shares up to 30% of its pre-tax net profit with all employees in an annual cash bonus. As a result, every WOLF employee — truck drivers, customer service representatives, warehouse workers — actually care about the success of our customers.
The new WOLF is a company with a new model, a new purpose and a new record of success. With the help of our manufacturing partners, our customers and our employees, this old company is doing some very interesting, relevant and important new things. – less
