Valley Supply: The Reliable "Go-To" Choice for Quality L&M Concrete Construction Chemicals in Central Pennsylvania
Nearly 20 years ago, Jeff King and Vic Scotese met and shared a close relationship as a distributor and competitor-supplier in the Northeast. They worked hard and played hard together. Over the years, Jeff and Vic learned a lot from each other in their respective roles in the concrete construction world.
Some years later, Scotese changed jobs and landed as the Mid-Atlantic regional sales manager for L&M. Around the same time, King took another job as VP and general manager for Valley Supply, a Harrisburg, Pennsylvania area distributor. Soon after Jeff and Vic reconnected, and quickly built a strong distributor/manufacturer relationship that continues to grow today.
King recently commented, "Our relationship with L&M is based on a history of consistent, high-performance product, and delivery. L&M is our 'go-to' product line for concrete chemicals, clear water repellents, non-shrink precision grouts, and their very popular Seal Hard and FGS/PermaShine. L&M's east coast blending plant and warehousing facility in Pottstown, Pennsylvania is only 30 miles away from us. We run pickups there on a regular basis for both our Mechanicsburg (Harrisburg) and Reading distribution facilities."
King continued, "Our local L&M sales manager, Vic Scotese, is very capable and always available to solve our customers' concrete problems. Vic and I share a great relationship which spans over a twenty-year period. He not only takes care of my concrete chemical needs here at Valley Supply, he also helps me now and then to get rid of some of my bad golf swing habits when we both find the time to hit the links."
Vic Scotese said, "Jeff and I share a past history that grew in mutual respect and friendship. My motto is 'Friendship first,' and then, quite naturally, complete service comes with the relationship. Jeff has built a very strong, customer focused distribution business that serves the concrete construction industry in middle and eastern Pennsylvania, as well as parts of northern Maryland. We couldn't be more pleased with the efforts that Valley Supply puts forth in promoting the entire L&M product line."
Valley Supply opened up their second branch in Reading, Pennsylvania a few years ago, and currently stocks a complete line of L&M products at both locations.
