About Master Distributors

Sandra Dobbin, CEO, founded Master Distributors in 1998 to source, import, distribute and exclusively represent international leading brands for the Australasian markets.
An exciting and energetic team of sales and marketing people support Master Distributors. By utilising this knowledge, sales are maximised and products are successfully sold and distributed into diverse Australasian markets.

The start of 2012 saw the commencement of Master Distributors’ company-owned operations in New Zealand.

With warehouses and full logistics teams in Australia and New Zealand, the storage, picking, packing and distribution of products is efficiently managed, with reliable service becoming the company’s mantra.

Today, Master Distributors is aligned with Cornerstone Merchandising Solutions (see right), a professional sales force with sales representatives located in both Australia and New Zealand for efficient servicing of these markets. Cornerstone’s expertise is instrumental in the DIY, hardware, garden market and related retailers. Master Distributors also employs specialty sales team to service and work with commercial, grocery, mass-merchant, and all other retail outlets.

Product barcode verification accreditation

Master Distributors are Intermax-accredited to use Axicon barcode verification equipment. This accreditation allows Master Distributors to test and verify that its product barcodes meet and exceed specifications so that they scan at the highest levels at the point of sale Australia-wide.

Cornerstone Merchandising Solutions was formed with the concepts of general brokerage (manufacturers’ representation) in mind. These concepts had proven to maintain and grow sales in the US DIY market. By employing this approach in the Australian and New Zealand DIY markets a successful major and lasting impact is continuing to be experienced.

As Cornerstone came to represent more international companies in the Australian marketplace, it soon became realised that further import and distribution facilities were required to back the sales services already available.

Through this Master Distributors was born.
