Veteran adult distributor Williams Trading Co is pleased to announce the Hall of Fame induction of Bob Pyne Sr at the 13th Annual Storerotica Award ceremony for his contributions to the Adult industry. Bob Pyne Sr. started Williams Trading Co over 45 years ago, starting as a full-time entrepreneur with DVDs and movies and transitioned to the biggest brand names in novelties and lubricants today.
Bob Pyne’s leadership has positioned the company for continued growth with the second generation of the family into all aspects of the business.
“Our family made a smooth transition to the second generation with six children running the business in management, warehouse operations, e-commerce, and purchasing. My daily role is separated but I still attend all of the family strategy meetings and weigh in with direction and leadership,” says Bob Pyne Sr.
During the beginning of this business Bob Pyne Sr., along with many adult pioneers fought for equality, free speech, fairness and acceptance of this emerging adult business.
“The early adult business was not as socially accepted and openly prevalent as it is today. We fought many legal battles and endured many inequalities, during the start of this industry. At the time we did not know that we were paving the way for this growing, successful industry that flourishes today” says Bob Pyne Sr.
Bob Pyne Sr. and the Williams Trading Co family would like to thank all of the nominees and winners of the 13th Annual SE Awards.
“Especially important to me is the valued relationship with our long term vendor partners including Calexotics, Pipedream, Nasstoys, and Doc Johnson, and our customers,” says Bob Pyne Sr. “The vendor support community including all of our suppliers, XBIZ, Storerotica, and ANME are an integrated part of our long term growth plan.”
Williams Trading continues to grow and focus on technology with the support of our valued customers with the largest e-learning platform, drop shipment programs for e-commerce support, and a comprehensive wholesale web ordering portal.
