Pingry Caswell: Outstanding service at competitive prices since 1924
Pingry Caswell is a local supply distributor servicing the greater Oshkosh, Wisconsin area.
“The company started in 1924 as Caswell Industrial Supplies. Then, in 1987, Jim Pingry purchased the company and expanded its product line to include janitorial products. I bought the business in 2010,” said Tom Cooper, Owner, Pingry Caswell.
Pingry Caswell now has four main sales segments: power transmission, material handling, sweeping compounds, and janitorial supplies. Pingry Caswell is also the exclusive manufacturer and distributor of the Badger Brand, which is regarded for its high quality sweeping compounds.
“We have a niche with what we do – a service niche where we not only deliver our products to a dock but we actually will bring them inside and put them into a closet or storage area. Since we have a specific geographic area that we primarily work with, we’re very service orientated.”

Finding a fresh start with a new system
“When I bought the company, the company was using a Microsoft-based software system for inventory. I used it for about the first year and we decided we needed to upgrade our inventory management software. We investigated 4 or 5 different packages before deciding on Acctivate,” Cooper said.
