We believe the end-user is best served when everyone in the supply chain works together and we help facilitate those relationships,” stated John Allenbach, AgoNow president of sales and co-founder. “We enable manufacturers to sell more deeply into their portfolios and distributors to access new product categories at a lower cost. We look forward to partnering with IBC distributor members to support their profitable growth in 2020 and beyond!”
Currently, AgoNow has 130 supplier partners and more than 150,000 SKUs in its system. More than 10,000 items are stocked in its 50,000 square-foot warehouse located in Tulsa.

We’re pure. That means we will only sell to distributors/resellers and not to end-users. In fact, we’ll sign a non-disclosure, non-compete, non-solicitation agreement with distributors to prove it.
We’re independent. AgoNow was founded and is 100% owned and controlled by its leadership team.
We’re committed to your success. In this increasingly complex and competitive market, we are committed to creating a marketplace where true channel partnerships can thrive.
