Commitment To The Community

At General Distributing, we are committed not only to our customers and our employees, but also to the communities in which we live. With five stores located throughout Montana, our employees take our core values and live them, providing countless hours of support to local and national organizations and non-profit groups.

It is one of our values to take a leading part in helping numerous community services, local schools, and non-profit organizations. Our employees volunteer hundreds of hours of service to these various organizations by working on boards and committees, organizing and working events, fundraising, collecting food and donations, and other activities. We support a large number of service organizations and local events, including the following:

Benefis Health System
Billings Clinic
Bozeman Health Foundation
Great Falls Food Bank
My Neighbor In Need
Saint Vincent De Paul
St. James Health Care
Special Olympics Montana

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.
