The business has its own competent and qualified sales force which adds value to sales by training the business's network of 250 suppliers for assisting in the sale of adhesives. Pawson Foundation August 2006 believes in special distribution as suggested by the reality that it has actually picked to sell through 250 suppliers whereas there is t a network of 10000 distributors that can be checked out for expanding reach via suppliers. The company's reach is not limited to North America only as it also enjoys international sales.

The possibility of sales cannibalization exists if Pawson Foundation August 2006 offers Case Study Help under the exact same portfolio.

This shows that the distributor has the higher power when it pertains to the adhesive market while the purchaser and the maker do not have a significant control over the real sales.
Threat of new entrants: The competitive environment with its low brand name commitment and the ease of entry revealed by foreign Japanese competitors in the instantaneous adhesive market indicates that the market permits ease of entry.
