Century Distributors, founded in 1976 and located in Rockville, Maryland, will join New York-based NCD as a newly created division. Currently, National Convenience Distributors is the fourth largest wholesale convenience distributor in the U.S., servicing 12 states along the I-95 corridor, with annual revenues in excess of $3 billion.
“We are extremely proud of the success Century Distributors has achieved since our inception,” said Debbie Robins, president, and Lori Rodman, VP of sales for Century.
“This opportunity to join NCD opens the door to even greater potential,” said David Sadugor, VP of operations for Century. “We are confident this will be an overwhelming benefit and positively impact our retail customers and valued employees.”
National Convenience Distributors has become the largest full-line convenience store distributor servicing the Northeast. Century will benefit from enhanced customer experiences, best practices, a centralized operating system integration, increased marketing power and go-to-market efficiencies, and synergistic and collaborative programs.
“We are delighted to be investing in Century and their dedicated team,” said Jeff Allen, CEO of National Convenience Distributors. “We operate our business with great people, and Century is a perfect fit within the NCD family. Debbie and her team have spent decades cultivating valuable relationships with customers, and we look forward to continuing that growth together.”
