SOL Home Improvements distributors simply order the components for each job automatically from Stramit via the ImproveIT software.
Does SOL undercut distributors by selling buildings direct to customers?
Absolutely not. It’s as simple as that.
We support our distributors by generating leads and working with our channel to win business.
Do I get an exclusive territory?
This option is available with various packages that can be customised according to the area and the distributors own business plan.

We offer distributorships – meaning you get the advantage of our software, business support, product designs and sales tools.

You operate as an independent business and your financial and business affairs remain your own responsibility.
