THE LOCAL OWNERSHIP ADVANTAGE
We know the territory.
Phillips is a locally owned company. Thus management has a direct stake in the success of the brands that Phillips represents. Local ownership means decisions can be made in a time sensitive manner that promotes effective marketing within our area's competitive environment. Phillips opened in Madison in 1928. Current management has operated the firm and lived in the community since 1961. Area customers identify with our effective and convenient local service structure. Phillips salespeople, office personnel, drivers and merchandisers live in the communities we service. These employees are an integral part of their home towns and bring good will to the trade and public. Our intimate knowledge of the local market is a real asset for our customers. Since we are a home grown company, we feel we can serve our customers best by working out marketing decisions tailored to our market.
