Paving the future with cement from the past. Your last name is powerful. More than just a suffix that appears after your first name, it acts as an umbrella that connects your family to all those who have come before you, and all that will come long after you are gone. At Kissler & Co., our last name means everything to us. As we celebrate our 91st anniversary this year, we are tempted to look at not only where our name has taken us in the past, but where it will be taking us in the future. After the third generation of Kisslers instilled the same qualities and values into the business as those who came before them, it’s the fourth generation that may be the most important one of all. Barry and Glenn Kissler are pleased their sons have joined the company and look forward to the continued success and growth of the business. “A family company making it to the fourth generation is extremely rare. To be a part of a company that’s made it this long is very special,” says Jeff Kissler, a graduate of Ithaca College. “Our customers always tell me stories about one of the generations before me and I’m always interested to hear what they have to say. It makes it seem Kissler & Co. Is the oldest living member of my family.” Perhaps one of the toughest challenges the fourth generation of Kisslers face is growing the company within a rapidly evolving marketplace, one where technology and connectivity set the bar for how successful a business can be. Matthew Kissler, a graduate of Syracuse University, believes Kissler and Co. Will have no problem keeping up. “Kissler & Co. Will continue to adapt to the fast-changing world that we live in to ensure our customers continue to get the best plumbing products possible,” he says. It isn’t just about new ideas for the two future business owners, however. It’s also about learning from those who came before them. “A company cannot last 90-plus years without high moral standards and a strong work ethic,” Matthew says. “The culture of this company has instilled a sense of loyalty, honor and respect that I try to display throughout all parts of my life.” Kissler & Co.’s consistent growth is a testament to its commitment to quality and customer satisfaction by providing value, selection and service to the plumbing industry since 1923. Count on Kissler & Co. To be your one-stop shop for plumbing repair parts and specialty products. Kissler & Co. Is thrilled to celebrate its 91st year in business, but is even more excited about the next 90 years to come. For more information visit www.kissler.com or call 800/KISSLER (547-7537).
