Demonstrated History of Success

Local Market Expertise

If you're a manufacturer your business requires that your products get to the distributor and enduser in a timely and efficient manner. They need to know what you have to offer. We have spent many years in this market and have a vested interest in the success of our vendors and customers.  This means we have the knowledge and relationships to get the results you need.


Serving the Intermountain West

We cover the states of Utah, southern Idaho, western Wyoming, and eastern Nevada


Commodity & High Tech Background

In our careers we have sold commodities like pipe and wire as well as high tech products such as PLCs, VFDs, and sensors. We are uniquely positioned to help both distributor and end-user understand what your company can do for them.  

Why We Succeed

3 Generations of Industry Expertise

Our history began when Bud Porter spent his career working for Thomas & Betts as a territory salesman for 30 plus years establishing T&B as a premier vendor in Utah and the Intermountain West.  Steve Porter, his son, started his career with Thomas & Betts and worked for Allen-Bradley/Rockwell Automation. He was a founder of Porter Brown Sales and Pinnacle Solutions - both in Salt Lake City.  Rod Porter, Steve's son, grew up in the industry and worked at Porter Brown Sales for a number years.

Our Company May Be New - But We Have Years of Experience!
