Our Mission

UBG® strives to unite specialty fireplace & outdoor living dealers to increase their profitability, secure unique protected product lines, and be part of a group of passionate dealers who care about each other and the industry. UBG® strives also to be the best conduit for select supplier partners to connect with the best dealer network in North America to help them penetrate the market with their product, increasing market share and profitability.

UBG® aims to elevate both members and supplier partners with relationships that are always built on honesty, mutual trust, and respect. Combining this with high quality products, we believe that the sales will follow. Facilitating the triangular relationship between supplier partners, members, and UBG® creates a synergy where all three entities will prosper much more than they could do individually.

Our Vision

To unite a network of independent business people, elevating one another to achieve everyone’s full potential.
