A warm welcome to David Pemberton, who recently joined our warehouse team in the role of Purchasing Specialist. Before joining SSC, David worked for W.W. Grainger, an industrial supply company for a total of 21 years, where he worked his way from a Warehouse Associate to a Sales Specialist. He started his career with Grainger right out of high school. When David moved to Bryan, Grainger did not have a branch in the area at that time. Between 2000 and 2005, David had a couple of jobs until Grainger opened a Bryan branch. During his time at Grainger, David received an award for having the top sales of their extended warranty plan.
Born in Abbeville, LA, David says he got to Texas ASAP! David and his wife have two wonderful sons, ages 11 and 9 in addition to a Boston terrier rescue. Outside of work, David likes to build things with wood as well as play sports and ride bikes with his boys. An interesting fact about David is that back in the early 80’s during his junior high years, he was part of a breakdance team!
David has volunteered at the food bank and through his church and has also been on a crew fixing rooves, cleaning houses, mowing lawns and basically helping where needed. David’s favorite quote is by Abraham Lincoln: “Sir, my concern is not whether God is on our side; my greatest concern is to be on God’s side, for God is always right.”
David really enjoys working in the warehouse. He finds fulfillment in getting the techs the parts they need when they need them.
