Pro-Link Starts ‘09 with Four New Members
CANTON, MA ─ Four well-established janitorial distributors have recently become new members of Pro-Link, a jansan focused marketing and buying group based in Canton, MA.
The four new members are:
KIC, Inc., based in Greenville, SC and started in 1981
Superior Janitorial Sales and Services, established 25 years ago in Jacksonville, FL
American Champion Supply, a 40-year-old company headquartered in Asheville, NC
And the oldest of the new members, American Chemical Co., of Charlotte, NC which dates back all the way to 1933.
“What impresses me most about these new members is that they are so deep-rooted in the janitorial industry,” says Paul Lemieux, CEO for Pro-Link. “They have decades of experience in the industry and know it inside-out.”
According to Lemieux, Pro-Link has had considerable growth in the past two years, especially among older, more established distribution houses like these.
He attributes this to the ever-changing janitorial marketplace, the current economy, and the belief of many janitorial distributors that they will benefit from the “strength in numbers” a buying group provides.
