Vendors


Over 300 established vendor relationships in the U.S. - when we call to place orders with U.S. suppliers we get the best discount rates and usually a special rep who handles all our orders and helps with any issues that come up. We also know which vendors to recommend and which to avoid.

Testimonials

  • "Grafft's business plan is simple: when a customer asks for an item, get it for them. To him, FBC members are not customers for his service, they are friends. He refuses to sell the FBC's mailing list to other companies, a common business practice, because 'you don't do that to your friends.'"

    -Steve Porritt, The ACCJ Journal

  • “FBC helps us obtain many hard-to-find items and items that are hard to send delivered from the U.S..”

    -Ayano Kihara, Nagoya International School

  • “FBC makes ordering our supplies from the U.S. so much easier and the sales representatives both in the U.S. and Japan are very efficient. We heavily depend on them because we are confident that they can help us in ordering whatever we need for our school from the U.S.. It’s so marvelous!

    -Yasuyo Swanson, Yokohama International School

  • “FBC makes ordering our school materials so much easier. Their LA warehouse and Japanese branch staff always give us prompt action, keep us updated on the order status, and provide great follow-up once the items are delivered to our school. We can get anything at all we might need from the U.S. through FBC, free from worry!”

    -Atsumi Fujii, Tokyo International School
