After working as a salesman for more than ten years in the shipping supply industry, I decided to open my own company with the help of my life-long friend Terry Travis, who also had experience in packaging supplies. We both found it frustrating working for companies that treated customers and staff like numbers, and we vowed that our new company would be different. Advance Shipping Supplies Inc. was born in 1985 in Mississauga. In the beginning, I worked on the road in sales, and Terry managed the office and warehouse. We're proud of the fact that we've stayed true to the values and vision we had from day one. It's always been very important to us to first understand our customers and then supply them with well-made products that meet their needs for a fair price. Our strategy seems to be working as Advance has grown continuously for over 25 years.
