Purchasing Specialist

Have you ever desired a challenge to meet the demand when the demand exceeds the supply? Do you want to be an integral part of the success of a company working directly with the President? Do you want to be more than just a number who mindlessly places orders based upon a computer print out?  Do you want to thrive at a company where your opinion matters and drives the final decisions and outcomes on a daily basis?

The possibilities are as endless and limitless as your thoughts and ability to execute. Come join a Black-owned company with a rich 49 year history of building the economic base of our communities and get paid for doing so.
