A few comments from our Co-Presidents
“When our father Don Dickson Sr. founded
Tri State Distributors in 1967 his goal was to establish a
diversified distribution company that had strong personal
relationships with it’s customers, suppliers and
employees. We believe those goals have been achieved.
One of Don Sr.’s favorite sayings was
“It’s a people business” and he was right.
Tri State has grown significantly over the
years, but we always remember to keep our eye on the
fundamentals as we provide
solutions for our customers and suppliers.”
