NEW Headquarters Canton MA BuildingNortheast Wholesale’s owners take pride in the relationships the company has built with manufacturers and customers.

A box of nails supplied by Northeast Wholesale (NEW) is more than what it seems. “We are really innovators when it comes to private-label branding on hand-driven nails – we can put our customers’ name, store codes, website and address on every single box that goes out of our warehouse for them,” Co-owner John Hurwitz says. “This has really aided our customers in differentiating themselves from big-box stores and other competitors.”

The company began offering private-label nails in the early 1990s at the suggestion of Rick Hurwitz, the company’s co-founder and other owner. In addition to customizing boxes of nails for its customers, NEW also offers nails in boxes bearing its own brand and logo.

Beaver SteelA strong focus on customer service combined with high-precision and high-capacity equipment helps Beaver Steel Services help its customers.

By Eric Slack

On a mission to succeed since H.A. Treser Jr. and his two oldest sons, Tony and Steve, founded Beaver Steel Services in 1989, the company is today a value-added steel service center and an HVAC wholesaler. Focused on steel and accessories for the HVAC contractor’s sheet metal shop market, the company has grown from its origins in Carnegie in Pennsylvania’s Allegheny County. Started with a 15,000-square-foot warehouse as a sheet supplier to HVAC mechanical contractors, Beaver Steel acquired its present day property in 1995 at the opposite end of Carnegie and now occupies more than 120,000 square feet of warehouse and processing space.

“As an HVAC wholesaler, we focus on ways to help save money for our customers,” President Tony Treser says. “We try and tour their shops and understand their product flow. We take a look at what they do on a day-to-day basis or review large jobs they have coming up. Both our steel service center and HVAC wholesaler business units have a focus on solving customer problems with value-added products and services, while providing exceptional customer service.”
