Since 1904 VTH is the only professional association for industrial distributors in Germany.
The acronym "EDIS" stands for "European Distributors of Industrial Supplies" and describes an association of technical dealers from various European countries.
EDiS, the European traders cooperation, celebrates its 25th anniversary in 2016. The founding members only had a rough idea of the cooperation at the start. They were bound together with the desire to be able to offer a uniform service to customers across Europe, to exchange knowledge concerning purchasing and to be able to mutually benefit from each other. Today, there are ten dealers from nine European countries that make up EDiS – the “European Distributors of industrial Supplies”.
