2016 Supplier Orion Award
Winner, Congratulations!

Geoff Staller completed a marketing/
management program at BCIT in 1979. He
commenced his career in the hardware sales
industry at the young age of 24. His focus has
been on hardware and building supply stores in
the Lower Mainland since that time. Geoff 's
first job was with Noma Lights. He then went
on to work with Pollack Imports for 20 years
and then joined the Coast Distributors' team
in 1999. He has been a leader in the Coast
family building and developing clientele
throughout the Lower Mainland and Fraser
Valley. He has also been involved in the BSIA

Geoff has seen and been part of many changes and tremendous growth in this industry,
during the course of his career. He takes great
pride in the rapport he has developed with
many of his customers. Geoff's approach with
his customers is "hands on" with a friendly
smile. He takes the time to visit his customers'
stores, meeting with owners and managers to
serve their specific needs. With many of his
customers, Geoff has developed a personal
friendship over the years. Geoff 's success in
this every changing industry is simply owed to
his commitment and loyalty to his customers.
To say that Geoff provides excellent customer
service is an understatement.
In addition to being a team and industry
leader, from the start of his journey in this
busy career, he also started a young family.

children and two grandchildren. His son,
Kevin Staller, is following in his footsteps
and joined the family at Coast Distributors.

JUNE/JULY 2017 BSIA NEWS

Established in 1986, Coast Distributors
had humble beginnings in founder Alex
Guy's back yard garage. His vision was to
become the first choice hardware and building supply distributor on Vancouver Island
and eventually all of British Columbia. Alex
steadily built a solid team who shared the
same quest for excellence as well as the same
passion for the industry. Coast Distributors
continues to base its reputation on good
old-fashioned customer service and product
knowledge. Boasting a team of 12 outside
sales representatives, with over 200 years
of combined experience, three warehouses
totaling over 50,000sq ft. and 17,000+ sku's,
we have what it takes to be a full line hardware/building supply distributor.
We are proud to be Western Canada's
largest independent two-step hardware and
building supply distributor.
We understand you cannot sell from empty
hooks and we also understand too much
inventory is not the answer, that's why we
have our trained and knowledgeable sales reps

working hard to get to know you, your store,
and your customer's needs, so that we can
help you define your own individual recipe
for success.
Coast Distributors has gained a widespread
reputation for fairness; with service, with
delivery and with pricing. As such, our customers receive competitive pricing, excellent
fill rates and regular sales rep calls.
Our four page monthly flyer offers you
some of the best deals in the industry on a
wide range of merchandise. These offerings
along with outstanding service, cost-effective
and timely delivery is what has made Coast
an industry leader servicing every town, village and city in British Columbia as well as
venturing into Alberta.
Coast Distributors believes in giving
back to our communities and back to our
industry. We support many local charities
in the communities we live in, as well, we
are active members of the Building Supply
Industry Association of B.C.(BSIA) - with
Brad McCluskie, GM in Nanaimo, serving
on the board of directors for over 10 years and
just completed a two year term as chairperson.
Brad is now involved with the Canadian
Retail Building Supply Council (CRBSC).
Coast Distributors is also a member of the
Western Retail Lumber Association (WRLA).
We provide employment to over 50 staff here
in B.C.
This year, Coast Distributors was the
recipient of the BSIA's 2016 Orion awards,
for top supplier of the year, top outside salesperson of the year, Geoff Staller, as well as
top inside sales/customer service award to
Mat Brunt in our Nanaimo Office. Where I
come from that's called a hat trick!
Coast Distributors is 100% family owned
and we are proud to call B.C. home and are
very proud to be Canadian.
Coast Distributors is committed to building long term relationships, and we look forward to meeting you and finding ways to grow
your business together.
