Supply Side USA, a national distributor of packaging, moving and storage supplies for self-storage and other industries, has appointed Robert “Rob” Kaminski as its new vice president of sales. Kaminski has more than 20 years of experience serving independent and chain self-storage operators.
“Even when I managed their largest competitor, I had to admire Supply Side’s merchandising skills and a level of customer service most distributors can only dream of," said Kaminski. "For me, joining their team is like moving up to the majors.”
In addition, company founder Roy Katz has been engaged to assist with Supply Side USA's marketing planning. “Roy’s ideas on service and merchandising helped self-storage businesses boost retail sales. Roy is going to help us show more businesses how to make more money," said Barry Johnston, president.
Supply Side offers shipping/moving cartons, carton-sealing tape, cushioning materials, gift boxes, and moving supplies specifically designed for self-storage operations. It also assists customers in improving retail performance through plan-o-gram programs. The company has been in business for more than 50 years. Its website includes an online ordering system, sales tips, display layouts and merchandising materials.
