Meet The Team

 

We love this business.  From the Chef to the Dishwasher, the Sales Managers to the Welders, we love this business.  How could you NOT love 304 Stainless?  Don't even get us started on 316!  

 

PJ Lamb and Carl Boutilier came together in 2015 to create a new rep firm.  One focused on premium equipment.  Hard work.  Long term value.  Friendships.

Patrick Elens

After a successful career in sales, Patrick shifted gears to

pursue his passion for food.  He attended Joliet Junior

College's highly respected culinary school and had fun

as a chef before joining the team.   Although he is a family

hugging his tomato plants.
