As a privately held company, I started EngineerSupply in early 1999 with an idea and by registering a domain name. It all began with a background in drafting, cad, surveying, residential and commercial architecture, and civil engineering working for a few large AEC firms and a couple of small Surveying Firms. With a degree in Architectural Design/Drafting and experience working for Surveying and AEC firms, my strong interest in business began to grow. Later earning a Bachelors in Business Information Technology with a concentration in Operations Management from Virginia Tech, I also began a love affair with the Internet in 1994-95. This is when the idea began and all of these components created a dream. A personal dream to create the largest and finest AEC Supply Company that I possibly could.
