Our Story

Paul and Dan grew up in the commercial building products industry. While their careers took them to various leadership positions within Fortune 200 companies, they often talked about one day starting their own company back in construction products.  This dream was realized at the end of 2016, as they started ComStuct Sales, LLC.

Meet the Team

This is an equal partnership between Paul Larson and Dan Schmidt.  Dan and Paul worked together for 10 years at ITW Buildex, a division of Illinois Tool Works, in various sales, marketing, and engineering roles.  They both developed significant new business selling fasteners, adhesives, and specialty tools exclusively into commercial roofing applications.  As key members of the leadership team, they helped grow sales by more than $13,000,000 (94%) over the last 5 years they worked together.
