DEMDACO and OneCoast part ways

OneCoast and DEMDACO mutually announced the end of their representation agreement effective Jan. 1, 2022.

The representation agreement was initiated in January of 2016 and has come to a natural end at the end of 2021. “We have enjoyed representing the DEMDACO brand for the last six years” said John Keiser, CEO of OneCoast. “Both companies have benefitted from the relationship” continued Keiser. “We are pleased that 2021 is projecting to be one of our best years together. I thank DEMDACO for the excellent product and their focus on the current supply chain challenges, as both are major factors in this year’s success.”

The sales force that formed the DEMDACO Sales Division within OneCoast will transition back to DEMDACO as of Jan. 1, 2022 and will become DEMDACO direct employees. “While we have enjoyed our relationship with OneCoast, having the sales organization as direct employees of our company fits with our long-term strategy,” Lance Hart, president of DEMDACO said.

Both OneCoast and DEMDACO are committed to making the transition very seamless for the independent retailer customer. Service will be uninterrupted from the OneCoast DEMDACO Sales Division Territory Manager as well as on www.demdacoretailers.com and www.onecoast.com.
