“We have worked with General Distributing for almost 20 years.”

“They have been, and continue to be much more than a supplier for our companies at 3 different locations. Their customer service is impeccable, they operate with the utmost integrity. They have gone above and beyond in offering and providing us with solutions that really work! General Distributing, the Bliss family and their employee team are a trusted partner on whom we rely in our daily operation. We are very fortunate to have them on “our team.”

“Been working with General Distributing for the better of 20 years now.”

“They always seem well knowledgeable and have great customer service! What I like the most is the ecommerce they set up! Having everything I order on a weekly basis all set up on one simple spot, makes it super easy and simple! I can do it on my own time and when Jake gets around I can spend our time being useful and not wasted.”

MT Tech Bureau Mines

“The guys at Butte's General Distributing are great to work with!”

“We use gas to run our instruments and oftentimes need tanks refilled / replaced the same day to ensure we meet holding times. Josh is always able to get us what we need with little or no notice. The majority of the time Calvin is sent to our lab...he is always smiling and pleasant and more than willing to help. I would highly recommend General Distributing! They are great to work with, provide an excellent product at a reasonable price, and the online site makes ordering easy and convenient. Thanks guys!”

“General Distributing Co has been my favorite and only supplier for the past ten years!”

“The staff and sales people are consistently very helpful and friendly! I always get what I need every week to keep operating. I would never use another distributor as Gendco has everything I need to run smoothly in my industrial shop. Also they're good at reminding me if I'm running low on fuels or consumables in my shop. I've developed priceless friendships with these guys as they're great to work with. I'm looking forward to many more years of service and friendship with them! Thank you Gendco for your invaluable customer service and quality products!”

Anderson Steel Supply, Inc.

“Having done business with General Distributing and the Bliss family for 46 years I consider them a “partner”.”

“I can always count on good service, knowledge, and quality products. As a “partner” they provided equipment service to my company when we had a project that involved using a customer’s equipment that was not working. General Distributing, at their own expense, spent hours servicing equipment they had not sold in order to keep my company producing without cost to me. That’s service. That’s called dedication to making sure customers are successful. I count on General Distributing every day of the week year in and year out.”
