For a century, Baldwin has been providing quality products, services, and expertise for generations of customers and clients, and has grown to become one of the leading privately owned industrial suppliers in the country. Now operating in eleven locations across the Upper Midwest, the company remains true to its spirit of independence and being part of the local communities it supports.Ultimately, one of the reasons Baldwin Supply Company has earned the trust of its customers is its commitment to strong community values. As owner and CEO Dave LaRue puts it, “business is only as good as the people in the business.” The technology of industry has changed dramatically since the company began, “but we’ve always stayed a bit old-fashioned in the sense that we really care about the relationships with our vendors, and we care about the relationships with our clients and customers, but I think we really care mostly about each other,” he says. “I think that’s why we’ve been able to survive and thrive,” he adds, “we’re real clear on who we are.”
We, at Baldwin Supply, are not out to reinvent the wheel - or the conveyor belt. We just want to continue to do what we do best: provide our services to our customers so that they can succeed in doing what they do best.
