We'll work with you

to supply what you need.


The need to compete against national and chain store industrial supply companies led to the meeting of a number of owners of independent stores in and around Melbourne in December 1996. The objective of this meeting was to ascertain the potential support-base for a buying group.


AIS is a group run by shareholders, for shareholders. You remain independent while enjoying the benefits of our powerful buying group. You decide how to run your business, not us.

As an AIS preferred supplier we are committed to providing your company with pathways to achieve growth throughout the store network. There are multiple ways that AIS can assist in this, many for which you will play a big part in. 


No AIS shareholder is identical to the other. The diversity of the network is one of the strengths of the company. Its no wonder many are experts in their field of industry. Its these industries that we focus our attention on here.
