About us

For over 60 years Great Lakes Sales Company has earned an enviable reputation for full‑service sales activity on plumbing, heating, and well systems product lines.  Our marketing strategy emphasizes sales through full line stocking wholesalers.   Our commitment to sell to stocking wholesalers is based on a belief that the distributor serves an essential role in our industry.  Future growth of the traditional plumbing industry is dependent upon the continued growth of the wholesaler.

Wholesale growth is largely dependent upon promotion to, and training of plumbers, contractors, well system professionals and mechanical engineers.  Thus, our practice of full‑service sales is of greatest importance.  Our experienced sales representatives pursue a variety of channels to stimulate and support sales.  In addition to extensive field work with wholesaler salesmen, we invest considerable time and effort promoting our products.  For example, we maintain continuous contact with specifying engineers and make systematic calls on contractors.  We participate in a variety of trade association activities.  These include booth displays at local, regional and state‑wide meetings as well as product presentations at monthly APSE, PHCC, OWWA and ASHRAE meetings.

Great Lakes Sales Company is a registered training agency with several approved continuing education courses approved by the Ohio Construction Industry Licensing Board for contractors in Ohio.  This makes our participation in association meetings that much more valuable.

Currently, Great Lakes Sales Company has three outside salesmen and two office support personnel.
