Dowd and Guild Inc., a super regional distributor, has been servicing the CASE, ink and plastics markets with the highest quality products for the past 31 years. We cover the 11 states west of the Rocky Mountains and the Southwestern states of Texas, Oklahoma, Louisiana, and Arkansas, as well as Western Canada. We are headquartered in San Ramon, CA with a sales office in Cerritos, CA and a staff of 40 employees to manage the needs of the business. We have thirteen warehouses, each strategically located in our territory to best serve our customers and suppliers.

Our company has grown significantly since 1986, but our dedication to providing the highest level of customer service and to growing our suppliers' business has not changed. Many of our customers say our customer service is “the best in the West.”

We continually strive to develop relationships with high quality manufacturers that will not only allow us synergy with our existing suppliers and customers, but will also help us expand into related markets. This philosophy allows our sales team to be dedicated to bringing technology and value to our customers to help them make their products the best they can be.

We welcome the opportunity to show how all of us at Dowd and Guild Inc. can help your company grow. We are proud to be members of the American Coatings Association.
