...What DSI's industrial customers don't have to worry about, though, is the market for their products diminishing, according to Dascenzo. “The demand for finished cabinetry and millwork fixtures within our segments may shift, but it's unlikely to decline or disappear,” he forecasts. The sales exec is especially optimistic about the outlook for fixture work for the foodservice sector.
“Do you eat online?” Dascenzo wants to know. “No?? Nobody does!” For that reason, he argues, restaurant work, in particular, is flourishing. “The demand for our customers to exist sets up pretty well to be solid for the future,” Dascenzo said. “There's ups and downs, peaks and valleys in our industry like others, for sure, but I feel very confident that when this industry—distributors and manufacturers alike—restocks the talent, there'll be plenty of things to sell and people to sell them to.”---READ THE REST OF THE STORY

Woodworking Shop Owner: Richard L.
"I wanted to take a moment to praise DSI on the awesome selection of product, but more importantly on your outstanding service.
I'm in the early stage of a small Design/Fabricating business, and I've only ordered from DSI a few times, but, it was so refreshing and unexpected to receive the friendly helpful service from everyone I have had the pleasure of dealing with.
From the inside sales person on the phone, to the people at the Detroit location behind the service counter or the yardmen loading my purchase, I was satisfied every step of the way.
And, more recently at the same location, I received top shelf service from Chris on the phone, and Brandon delivering the product.
I was nice being treated the same as one of your big accounts. DSI employees earned my loyalty on any future purchases.
Thanks again for the great service!" -- Richard L., DSI Satisfied Customer
