The Comstruct Sales 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.
