Meet Our Specialist: Mark Hiltgen

What does it mean to be a Baldwin Supply Specialist? 

In the one hundred years since Baldwin Supply started out in a one-room storefront, serving the needs of the flour mills of Minneapolis, to where we are today, offering a wide array of products and services to an incredible diversity of industries, we’ve come to understand that digging deeper and going the extra mile to solve problems for our customers is more than a matter of “value-added”—it’s a matter of staying true to the values that have led to our success as a company.

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, which is something our team, including Specialist Mark Hiltgen, does everyday!
