WASHINGTON, D.C. - The National Lumber and Building Material Dealers Association (NLBMDA) announced today that BlueTarp Financial is the newest member of the association's Manufacturers and Services Council (MSC). The council is composed of the leading building material manufacturers and service providers serving the LBM industry.

NLBMDA's MSC members are established industry leaders who supply products and services to lumber and building material dealers and regional chains across the nation. The dedicated members of the council share a commitment to promoting and enhancing the success of independent dealers and regional chains.

Headquartered in Portland, Maine, BlueTarp Financial, Inc. has been the leading trade credit and marketing services provider for the building supply industry across the United States since 1998. Merchants who offer BlueTarp Trade Credit to their customers enjoy cash flow, increased sales, and reduced risk of managing credit in-house.

Increased cash flow allows growing dealers to invest in sales people, customized inventory and even new locations. BlueTarp dealers can also take advantage of the company's new eMarketing Services to increase sales. The new service, offered exclusively to qualified dealers, provides customized e-communications to drive increased visits from active and lapsed contractors. These regularly distributed emails include direct advertising, exclusive eDeals, and eSurveys that provide customer insights directly back to dealers.

"We are honored to join the NLBMDA and support the needs of its members. As growth in the building supply industry continues to accelerate, many owners are looking ahead for what investments they can make to strengthen their businesses. Our trade credit and marketing services are the smart solution for savvy dealers looking for the best ways to grow," says Scott Simpson, CEO of BlueTarp.
