With our experience and distributing capabilities, we’re widely recognized as the leading wholesale distributor in the Pacific Northwest.

To better serve the Pacific Northwest, EDI has two locations, each with its own Showroom, Training Facility, Warehouse, Will-Call area, and Custom Integration store. Our corporate headquarters and primary distribution warehouse are located in Portland, Oregon, with an additional facility in Seattle, Washington. Recently, EDI added Custom Integration stores at both locations as a “one-stop shop” for all our dealers’ custom integration needs. Dealers can also take advantage of our showrooms to bring potential clients in for live demonstrations and displays. EDI also has an established e-Commerce division, servicing well-known online retailers nationwide.

EDI is dedicated to our dealers’ success. We strive for excellence by providing the highest level of customer service and the highest quality product assortment at competitive pricing. We offer no-charge delivery to our dealers in Oregon, Washington, Idaho, and Montana, as well as maintain an extremely competitive pallet rate freight program. Our website allows for 24/7 dealer access, which can be used to order product, see inventory levels, review invoices and payments, track shipment information, and request RMAs. We are also dedicated to keeping our dealers informed, which we accomplish through e-mail marketing, catalog mailers, and flyers for all promotional items, training, and special events.
