Set up a meeting with a rep from each supplier that specializes in the markets you plan to target. Interview the rep, let them know what your plans are, goals, growth, and what's important to you. Then ask for them to tell you how they can help you and your business, and why you should consider giving them your business versus the next supplier. Consider who is honest, keeps their word, responsiveness, shows up on time, their reputation, service at store, quality of their products, and overall value. Trade partnerships are build on trust, integrity, and credibility. Good luck.

I personally think KWAL is junk. You know all those 3 year old subdivisions that look like they were painted 15 years ago? Thats Kwal

On the other hand I thank them for keeping the repaint market hot

We use Kwall for stains, Jones Paint for Primer and SW for paint.
