Quality Resource Group (UPIC: PBPLINC), a distributor based in Plymouth, Minnesota, has joined buying group Reciprocity Road, a group with a philanthropic focus launched earlier this year by distributors MadeToOrder, Inc.; Brand Fuel, Inc.; The Icebox; Zagwear; Image Source; C&S Sales and Robyn Promotions. Its members intend to build better businesses together while making their communities stronger.

Reciprocity Road’s founding distributors endorsed QRG after a thorough review process including an on-site visit. Rod Brown, CAS, CFO of MadeToOrder, says, “We are meticulous about who joins Reciprocity Road. We have an obligation to our stakeholders and our supplier partners to align only with exceptional companies for the fastest return possible. And we don’t mean merely monetary returns, the criteria for a Reciprocity Road member involves three key areas: a stellar reputation; proficient, profitable and creative business practices; and a generous corporate spirit. Quality Resource Group exemplifies our highest ideals and will help accelerate our mission and mutually enrich our professional growth.

“We are humbled by the amount of interest in Reciprocity Road and we’re honored to align with the entire team at Quality Resource Group. Together, we will build a mutually beneficial highway for greater profit, while fueling an inspiring journey for everyone involved.”

QRG President Todd Pottebaum, MAS+, adds, “Reciprocity Road is a revolutionary force that drives value to our supplier partners, internal teams, and to the communities in which we live. Reciprocity Road’s core mission and values align perfectly with our own, and we can clearly accomplish more as a group than we can individually. QRG’s inclusion in Reciprocity Road marks the beginning of what promises to be a fulfilling partnership.”
