May 30 is the deadline for you to participate in this year’s NAHAD DPR Survey, now available in an interactive PDF format for easier use and submission. We are pleased to extend a very low fee of $100 to participate in this extremely valuable benefit - compared to the non-member fee of $325. You’ll be billed after you submit your completed DPR Survey. 


The era of automatic profits has come to a halt. The industry has moved from trying to keep up with demand to battling sales, pricing, expense control and every other aspect of operations. Financial benchmarking information is now more important than ever before. The best source of financial benchmarks for the hose and accessories industry is the NAHAD Distributor Profit Report

The information provided in the Report provides answers to questions such as: “Are the most successful firms in a down market placing more emphasis on gross margin management or expense control?”. In short, this report presents a wealth of financial and operating guidelines. In addition, it provides direct comparisons between your firm and other participating firms. 


In return for completing and submitting the DPR Survey, you’ll receive: 

The Industry Performance Report

A financial and operating profile of the entire industry.

Performance Analysis Report

A confidential report sent directly to you comparing your firm with similar participating

firms. Many firms take this report to the bank to discuss loans and lines of credit.

Profit Toolkit Online

A Microsoft® Excel spreadsheet to assist your financial planning. Access instructions are included with your Performance Analysis Report.
