Keeping Today’s Work Force Equipped

Frank Samsel, 1966
In 1958 Frank Samsel began with product lines consisting of wire rope, chain, blocks, load binders, manila rope and only a few employees. Samsel Supply Company quickly grew to become a leader in construction, industrial and maritime supplies throughout the Great Lakes Region.
Samsel Supply was a “Green Company” ahead of its time. Frank and his company were recognized for the clean up of ecologically damaging spills in inland lakes and rivers. Samsel played a major role in the clean up of the Cuyahoga River.
