After 32+ years of traveling and representing a major specialty chemical manufacturer, Skip retired.

Realizing retirement was premature, Skip kept current with industry trends and products, and continued conducting trainings, composing articles and consulting. Within about two works he was all in again; back to work. Skip and his wife Jill, acquired Sarasota Chemical and Paper in 2014. Having been on the supplier side of the business, they wanted to try their hands at distribution.

Coupling Skip's experience, knowledge, and LEED Accreditation with the friendly family atmosphere, it's no surprise the business quickly evolved. Soon its customer base expanded beyond the borders of the Sarasota area, hence the name change to PEC Supply, or Paper Equipment & Chemical Supply. Having a new name inspired new goals, one pivotal goal being: If Amazon can deliver one item, why can't we?
