Vision & Team


We are committed to provide a Direct Distribution approach that elevates customer awareness, provides flexibility, and delivers immediate and ongoing cost savings.
Our innovative culture supports our vision enabling us to be a resource and advocate to our customers. By combining the value of distribution and a manufacturer direct approach, we consistently deliver quality products at the desired price level.
  • Integrity: Unbiased and uninfluenced politically, honest and ethical.
  • Innovative: Forward thinking and creative spirit.
  • Inclusive: Collaborative, supportive and compassionate.
  • Excellence: Culture of continuous improvement.

Formed in December 2016, the team at J2 Resources recognized there were many areas within the industrial distribution supply chain that could be vastly improved. Fueled by an innovative spirit to be a resource and advocate to our customers, the underpinnings of all that we do are rooted by a simple question; does this bring value to our customer? Our goal is to consistently build loyalty and cultivate customer relationships. We strive to continuously provide and improve the way our customers experience the benefits of partnering with J2 Resources. These benefits are summarized by simplifying and ever-improving the process of obtaining products by offering a combination of technical expertise, best-in-class technology and streamlining of the supply chain. J2 Resources offers a transparent model that blends buying direct from the manufacturer with all the value of transacting with a distributor. We are committed to remove redundancies, leverage what exists in the marketplace and allow customers to tap further upstream in the supply chain. This results in cost savings, quality and efficiency for you!
