With its roots in Kansas City, Missouri, Mel Stevenson proudly opened the SPEC doors as an equipment and supply business for the roofing industry. Today SPEC has grown to include a network of thirty-six convenient branches, located in strategic markets throughout the United States. Each with a collection of trusted vendors who have been carefully selected by the market demand and the superior products they represent. The associates at each SPEC branch location are also carefully chosen and trained with relevant skill sets and proficiencies in all phases of the industry. They share a responsibility to assist all customers by providing; superior service, quality construction products and materials, competitive pricing and on-time delivery. The SPEC name is on all our products, but more importantly, the SPEC associates are dedicated to a commitment of hard work, integrity and respect; which is our way of thanking every customer for their trust and their loyalty. The Stevenson family bears responsibility for the future of this business and the well-being of its nearly 350 trained associates in 12 states. It’s a responsibility to which they've gladly devoted their lives.
