Our origin was at an industrial distributorship, so we truly understand your unique needs and design our software with customer and vendor partner input to address those ever-changing needs.
The History of Tribute
In 1928, Mr. B.W. Rogers Sr. founded what was known then as the B.W. Rogers Company (today known at Kaman Fluid Power). The company began as a sales agent for manufacturers such as Allis Chalmers and B.F. Goodrich then transitioned into a power transmission/process equipment and belting distributor. In 1947, The Parker Alliance Company asked the B.W. Rogers Company to become a hydraulic tube fittings distributor.
This change was the company’s first significant step into the fluid handling business and distribution. B.W. Rogers Company became one of Ohio’s largest-selling organizations for fluid power products.
During the early 1980s, B.W. Rogers Company streamlined its operations to remain profitable and competitive by developing a custom software system to distribute hose, fluid power, and rubber products.
In 1983, after three years of development, their new software system was finished, which B.W. Rogers began selling nationwide. Thus, Tribute was born.
In February 1994, Tim Reynolds acquired Tribute Inc. In 2004, we introduced our state-of-the-art product TrulinX, which uses SQL Server Database, Windows Server Operating System, and Object-Oriented Programming Architecture.
