1991 – 1992

Both John Staples and John Scarsi viewed owning a Carrier distributorship as a challenge, not only in terms of their ability to successfully operate a large and demanding business, but also in their ability to win the confidence of their employees and customers. The first two operating years of 1991 and 1992 were a challenge for the new company as the Southern California area was still in a recession mode. Both years were profitable for the new company, but sales hovered only slightly above the 1990 mark of $75 million.
