Gabriel Curry was just 17 years old when he discovered his passion for the industrial supply industry. His first job was doing landscape installation, making $23,000 a year...
"Looking for a pay raise, I left my job working for the landscaper later that year, and landed a new job selling bolts for this man Mark’s company. Instead of a pay raise, he talked me into a pay cut! (No good business lesson in that).
However, Mark is a highly disciplined individual who really knows how to leverage money and his customers benefited from lower cost. Mark taught me the second greatest business lesson I ever learned - to think of the customer as “the boss.”
I did so well in sales, that nine years into working for Mark, I bought his company, “HUB”. The company was doing half a million dollars in sales when I was first hired on January 1, 1996. By the time I purchased it in mid-2005, we were doing over four million annually. When I sold the company on January 4th, 2016, HUB had grown to about thirty million in revenue."
We know your industry.
Since he started working at HUB, Curry brought an unmatched level of service and satisfaction to his customers for the next 21 years. Today, he is on new mission! Inspired by the people he’s met in the industry, Curry decided to launch his very own industrial supply company, Fuelbox Industrial. He has over 25 years of expertise in the business, and is bringing his skill set to focus on a new dynamic in the industrial supply space: innovation and productivity.
