The Workplace Solutions Association (WSA) has opened its membership to the former members of the now defunct Business Solutions Association (BSA).

The BSA – which represented the interests of the vendor and manufacturer rep community in the US – quietly folded at the end of 2023. Now, the WSA will establish a Manufacturer Forum to provide a platform for business products manufacturers to meet, network and discuss pertinent business issues. Additionally, WSA will invite manufacturers and manufacturer representatives to join its advisory committee.

“In our discussions with the former BSA leadership, we wanted to cultivate an attractive landing spot for these leading manufacturers and reps in the office supplies and business products space, while also finding ways to connect suppliers with the independent dealer community that we serve,” said WSA Executive Director Mike Tucker.

The WSA said this move “aligns with its mission to serve the entire workplace solutions industry and establish important connectivity between the supply chain, independent dealers and service providers”. Manufacturers and manufacturer reps will enjoy dual membership in WSA and its parent organisation, leading cleaning and hygiene association, ISSA.
