Forté Buying Group Meets

San Francisco Forté Buying Group, Inc., a decorative
plumbing and hardware buying group with a growing following in the
kitchen and bath industry, conducted its bi-annual Fall Conference
here recently.

The October 2002 conference was attended by 42 of the buying
group’s Preferred Vendors, who exhibited their products to
Forté members in a table-to-table format, according to
Forté. Each of the vendors represented high-end, upscale
decorative plumbing and hardware lines, Forte added.

The conference included programs addressing key issues facing
independent decorative plumbing and hardware showrooms. In
addition, 15 new member companies were introduced.

“Forté has grown significantly since we first organized
it one year ago,” said executive director Ed Schukar. “But we are
more focused on the quality of our membership as opposed to how
many members we have.”

Forté’s next conference is scheduled for March 6-8, in
New Orleans. Information may be obtained by calling (713)
