Anyone can sell you a product, but finding you the right solution is where our value differentiates us
I've seen a lot in my 40+ years of experience in our industry. One of the many impressive things about the Janitorial and Sanitary industry is the love of family. This industry and the companies that still represent it strongly today are mostly build by family run businesses. Ours is no different.
Shortly after graduating from Rider University with a degree in history, I found myself as a young salesman looking for my next customer. It wasn't too long before I realized how being a good distributor is so dependent on relationships. Relationships with our customers and relationships with our manufacturers.
I have been the President and Owner of Spruce Industries since 1989 and the culture I have built is founded on some very core principals. Honesty, Integrity and Loyalty. Sometimes we win and sometimes we lose but our reputation is what we pride ourselves on. We build relationships.
A degree in Computer Engineering from the University of Michigan and 6+ years of Application Development experience at JP Morgan has given me the experience and knowledge to be able to handle my new role at Spruce Industries. Who am I kidding!
In 2005, I joined Spruce Industries and started what has become my journey into the world of environmental solutions. Sustainability has become a world trend and I am happy to say Spruce has been a part of it from the beginning.
