Impeccable Consistency

Back in 1963, Skidmore Sales & Distributing began as a single warehouse operation located Cincinnati, Ohio. Today, we have grown to over 200 suppliers with 19 warehouses from Massachusetts to California.

Our growth has been driven by the belief that nobody is more important than our customers, and one of the ways that we prove that is through our delivery system. We boast an in-full delivery rate of over 99% with complete documentation. When you commit to Skidmore Sales & Distributing, we commit to you. 

More Than Ingredient Distributors

We make sourcing even the most hard-to-find ingredients easy and painless. We do this in part because of our ability to simplify and consolidate your entire order — from commodities to specialty ingredients — into a single shipment. This saves you time and money. We have decades of experience in logistics, local warehousing, and lead time optimization that will help you grow, whether you are a small business owner or a supplier.

Skidmore Sales & Distributing is much more than a distributing company. Our mission is to help your company succeed, and we do that by going the extra mile in our service.

At Skidmore, we view our customers and suppliers as partners. We only succeed when your business does. For over half a century, we have been committed to the success of our customers before anything else, and we are willing to go the extra mile to help you reach your goals.
