David Wright, owner, All American Safety & Supply LLC, 8535 Rivoli Road, Suite B, Bolingbroke, 478-992-9282, www.allamericansafetyandsupply.com
How long have you been in business?: “We’ve been in business about a year. ... I worked for a manufacturing rep agency in the safety industry and got tired of traveling. ... So I decided to go on my own.”
Wright sells products mostly for industrial use, such as manufacturing facilities, power plants and paving companies. He usually works within a two-hour radius of Macon.
“Before starting the business, I noticed that too many of the supplies used in the industry are imported from overseas. So our goal was to primarily provide ‘Made in the U.S.A.’ products. We do offer imported items, but we try to source most of the products we sell domestically.”
What do you like best about your job?: “Every customer is different as to what they’re doing. ... We try to help every customer in different ways. Our biggest thing is customer service, so anything they want we’ll get. ... I like problem solving.”
What is your specialty?: The company carries a full line of industrial and safety supplies, such as traffic safety devices, personal protection equipment, hand protection gloves, chemical suits and fire extinguishers, mostly wholesale.
What are your future plans?: “Next year we will have a storefront ... and have some more people working for us. ... Our website should be live, so people can buy online.”
