Andy is one of the two third generation owners of CH Bull Co. Charles Henry Bull (my grandfather) started our company in 1930 in the height of the depression. We are celebrating our 92nd year in business this year.
Andy worked as a kid at the company but made it his permanent job February 1978. Starting in the warehouse and as a driver he has worked his way into a position to be the president. His passion for the company is seen when in front of customers offering solutions to their problems. He believes that unless the customer has a problem, we have nothing to offer them.
One of the problems many customers had in 1989 is when the senate bill SB198 was passed. This bill required companies to have a safety program in place. Many companies came to us for help. Andy is now in front of customers, at tailgate meetings, with trade associations, and at trade shows offering safety seminars and training 6-10 times a month. His approach to safety is very practical but believes things don’t always have to be dry and does seem to get the point across with energy and humor.
Andy has been on national distributor advisory councils for companies like Ridgid, Greenlee, Milwaukee, Louisville, and Enerpac. He is an active member of STAFDA, TAB The Alternative Board, ASSP, and his church. Married for 48 years he has 3 daughters and 9 grandchildren.
