FMS REACHES MILESTONE OF SERVING OVER 3,500 STORES
Helping Independent Retailers Succeed with an Emphasis on the Family-Run Business
BALTIMORE, MD May 28, 2015 — In May of 2015, FMS Solutions (www.FMSSolutions.com), a provider of financial, accounting and consulting services to independent retailers across North America reached the milestone of serving over 3,500 stores. Founded in 1974, the goal of FMS was to provide independent retailers the tools they needed to increase efficiency and profits. For over 40 years FMS has steadily broadened its client base and opened regional offices in Tennessee, Oregon, Michigan, New York and Texas. Bob Graybill, President and CEO of FMS stated, “Many of our retailers are family-run businesses and have been around for generations so it is very rewarding to see their stores grow from single to multiple locations. Equally rewarding is seeing these stores succeed while fending off big box competition.”
FMS is proudly the National Grocers Association’s preferred provider of industry benchmarking, best practices, and mission-critical decision support. FMS has also built strong relationships with many state associations, the IGA Institute, and wholesalers. These relationships have enabled FMS to share benchmark data and educational seminars for the entire independent retailer industry.
Mark Ehleben, FMS Vice President, went on to add, “this is a very exciting milestone in the history of FMS and we could not have reached this point without our great customers. Staying focused on our mission of “Helping Retailers Succeed” has allowed FMS to grow and succeed right along with our customers.
