Our Mission

The mission of PRSCO is to provide our members:

  • Collective purchasing power
  • Dedicated warehouse distribution
  • Year-end patronage dividend and guaranteed rebates
  • Rebate and fee transparency

What is a Reserve Supply?

A Reserve Supply Company is wholly and equally owned by a group of common stockholders. It functions as a wholesale distributor and maintains a central warehouse, which is one of the major differences between a Buying Group and a Reserve Supply Company. A stockholder of a Reserve Supply can earn dividends on their common stock when they purchase from the Reserve.

PRSCO was founded in 1930 by a group of Philadelphia Area building material dealers. Their mission was to pool their purchasing power so they could acquire products at a lower cost and distribute them in smaller quantities amongst its members. All net profits were rebated back to each member in the form of a patronage dividend. PRSCO still operates that way to this day!
