Dear Valued Business Partner:

We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your business and share with you our exciting news for 2007.

On February 1st, 2007, The Russ Leahy Company, Inc. will merge with NorthStar Sales, Inc. to form one of the strongest professional sales agencies in the sanitary maintenance, foodservice and industrial/institutional markets. Our combined sales team will consist of twelve sales professionals who share similar business philosophies, especially when it comes to impeccably high standards of honesty, integrity and ethics.

This merger will allow us to consolidate our resources and maximize the strengths of both organizations. We are restructuring our account coverage to increase our efficiencies. Your NorthStar Sales rep will be contacting you in the near future to share these positive changes with you.

The Russ Leahy Company’s corporate office will be closing in January. The NorthStar Sales office staff is being cross trained to be able to provide quick, competent, correct answers to any and all questions, order inquiries, or requests. We keep a fully stocked sample and literature room to quickly get product information on it's way to you.

All purchase orders, pricing, sample and literature requests, etc. should be directed to our main office:
