Jay Blaushild opens up in an interview with Kevin Blaushild as he thinks back and reflects on his relationship with his father, the early years of Famous Supply, and his journey through life. Those that have met Jay, know he is one of a kind. Now, he’s answering the questions you’ve been curious about.
Famous Supply founder, Hyman Blaushild, came to the United States from Latvia in 1922 where he continued his profession as a sheet metal contractor in Cleveland, Ohio. As a contractor, Hyman understood the value and importance of partnering with a wholesaler. When he was not getting the service he needed, he formed direct supplier relationships and changed the focus of his business from contracting to wholesale distribution in 1933. Today, Famous is still wholesale only serving trade professionals.
Family businesses seldom reach their 4th generation of leadership. When they do, they are typically characterized by family dysfunction and a business model that benefits the ownership. For over 86 years Famous Enterprises has been fundamentally different than most family-run organizations. The Blaushild family has worked to build a purpose-driven business whose family culture extends to over 1,000 Associates, valued Customers and key Suppliers. Available on Amazon
