Midwest Spec was formed in the spring of 2006, as a result of the merger between Morrissey Associates and Select Spec Sales. This merger created one of the most diverse, dynamic and experienced rep agencies in the Midwest region of the country.
Morrissey Associates was founded in 1976, by Joe Morrissey. It was Joe's entrepreneurial spirit, along with Conbraco Industries innovative new product, the Apollo® ball valve, which proved to be the initial ingredients of success for Joe Morrissey, Inc. As the business grew, Joe added his sons, Tim in 1982, and Kevin in 1989 to service the robust industrial market in the tri-state area. It wasn't long, before market share and brand loyalty became the fruits of their labor. Tim and Kevin purchased the agency from their father in 1997, and formed Morrissey Associates, Inc. Today Tim serves as President of Midwest Spec, and his partner Kevin serves as Vice-President
It is our stated goal to become the "Rep of Choice" among the manufacturers we represent, and the customers we serve in the Industrial, Mechanical and Plumbing supply chain channels. We've partnered with some of the best-names-in-the-business, and we're committed to representing manufacturers who bring specifiable products to the marketplace. We also recognize that bigger doesn't always mean better. At Midwest Spec, we aim to stick to one basic tenet of business, and that is the principle that building relationships, builds business.
As an agency, we view problems as opportunities, and when you add our over 250 years of combined sales experience, with our industry background and product knowledge, you’ll find comfort in working with an agency "Where Service + Knowledge = Solutions".
