Pro-Link, Canton, Mass., announces another new member for 2011: Carey Wiper and Supply of New Britain, Conn.

The increasingly competitive environment is certainly one reason Ken Byer, the Owner and President of Carey Wiper and Supply, joined Pro-Link. According to Byer, changes in the industry have been nothing but profound since he began with the firm over 25 years ago.

“At one time, we just competed against other jansan distributors,” he says. “Now, we compete with the Internet, big-box stores, distributors from other industries, you name it.”

“In addition to better buying power, we’ll get personal support from the Pro-Link organization including the field expertise of the regional managers, and training and program support materials from the home office. This makes it easier for us to do a better job of selling products and winning new business in our market,” Carey adds.

Carey Wiper and Supply, established in 1932, has 16 employees to cover central Connecticut.
