A new revolution
In a time where the cost of materials necessary to make compact discs have risen dramatically, a co-operative venture was formed. Thirteen compact disc manufacturers in the United States met in Philadelphia to form a new alliance called Colonial Purchasing.
By joining this co-op, the companies gained greater buying power for the materials they need to replicate compact discs. Under the cooperative's agreement, resin and a variety of other volume materials for replicating, printing, and packaging are bought in larger quantities, yielding lower price points.
If each company was to buy its own materials at their own quantity, than it would be more difficult for them to make a profit without raising their prices. The members of Colonial Purchasing are able to provide high quality products to their customers while being competitively priced. In the end, our members can increase their profitability while keeping their customers completely satisfied.
