Joshua Dieter

Joshua Dieter

Warehouse Associate


With several years experience in the industry, I love the interactions with contractors and end users. I'm all about loyalty, commitment, and having a strong moral compass in life. I'm very happy to be part of this company because it's more like family where employees actually care about each other and our customers. I'm newly married to my lovely wife Tracy. When I'm not at the office are spending time with my family in the thousand islands, traveling, watching football, going to movies, playing cards and I'm a huge dog lover. My motto is "Treat others as you would like to be treated" and "My mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive; and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humor, and some style."
