General Overview

ADS was incorporated in 1979 as a full service distribution company concentrating in servicing the Cosmetics, Health and Beauty, and Fragrance Industries.

Brief History

Anticipating the need for an outsource for small and medium sized companies in the industry, ADS was established to take over the operational portion of the clients' business thus allowing them to concentrate their full attention to their core competency, mainly Sales and Marketing. By writing one check per month, they are able to discharge a myriad of duties.

Organization and Facilities

ADS operates six facilities located in Northern New Jersey and Southern Rockland County New York, roughly 35 minutes from midtown Manhattan. Total square footage is approximately 850,000. Each facility operates independently although interconnected through data lines.

Each facility is staffed with an operations manager, a warehouse manager, line supervisors and office staff (Account Executives). All senior positions report to the President through a Director of Operations.

Everyone at ADS understands and appreciates the single SKU we provide is 'SERVICE'. We take pride in the reputation that we enjoy with all of our clients. We fully understand the competitive environment that our clients face in the retail markets and pledge ourselves to only enhance their ability to succeed.

Customer Service & Administration

ADS will dedicate an Account Executive to operate as the client's representative at ADS. The A/E is the single contact person to handle all inquiries and provide meaningful responses on a timely basis.

Order Processing

Our IT system has the capacity to accept and process thousands of orders per day from multiple sources that include, EDI, AS2, web based orders, and direct entry from on site and remote locations. We can service business-to-business as well as business to consumers.

Our system is able to interface with most remote systems and import or export data via flat files. We offer various options for connectivity with our clients. EDI can be processed utilizing the ADS mailbox or through the client's mailbox. This requires a detailed discussion by IT personnel to arrive at the best solution.

In Summary

ADS presents an ongoing operating environment that can easily assimilate most businesses with little, if any, disruption or modification by either party. Other than identifying and resolving the communications protocols, the business can be absorbed with the capacity, personnel, and systems currently in place.

ADS will customize its servics to wrap around the client's needs to provide the best possible flexible environment for growth.
