Welcome to the Central States Beauty Supply Company website!
I would like to take the opportunity to welcome you and share a brief history of our company. We are one of Indiana's oldest beauty supply distributors and our team strives to provide superior customer service to the beauty and barber industry.
In February of 1945, my Grandfather, Dean Arnold, founded Central States. He built the company on honesty and integrity. In 1966, my father, Ken Bruns, continued his father-in-law's business philosophy while adding his own personal understanding of people. Due to the passing of Ken Bruns in 1996, the corporation named me President, empowering my brother Rick and I with the task of upholding the rich legacy that was set forth by our father and grandfather.
Central States' success is not only attributed to the hard work of the two generations before us, but is also reliant on two other elements.
First, we have always related our success to the high level of care and professionalism that our employees exemplify with our customers. It is an undisputed fact that our most valuable resources in our company's history has been you, the customer.
Second, we recognize that our success in the future is not based on what we have achieved to date. More so, it is based on leveraging our ability to sustain a long-term competitive edge. To do this we must both identify and satisfy customer needs while providing a productive and supportive customer service relationship.
Our future success is dependent on upholding our reputation to delight you, our customer, with courtesy and efficiency. We intend to do this by partnering with you to continually get a better understanding of how we can help you build your business.
Robb Bruns, President
