What is the Catalyst Group?

We are an alliance of like-minded vendors serving the contracting industry. The group is made up of companies that have a proven track record of providing some of the best products, services and customer care to our respective customer bases.  

This group is a “Do It Right” alliance industry think tank with the goal of collaborating and sharing ideas and solutions together with the contracting industry. The aim is to increase marketplace capabilities and help to drive business in this industry to new heights!

The Catalyst Group is structured as a 501C6 non-profit corporation. We are self-funded by our vendor members and free for contractors.

Why We Partnered

To Build a Vendor Alliance for Contractors that provides the best live and online educational opportunities, where the industry will decide who the best resources are. Allowing for a “best of breed” coalition of service provides to be a “business in a box” resource for contractors.

Value

To create a community of contractors who, with the help of The Catalyst Group vendors, change the perception of consumers in a positive way for their industry as a whole. We desire to bring together ethical contractors with leading vendors of all niches to advance solutions in the marketplace.
