2008

Roger Jorgenson Retires

Upon Roger’s retirement his children followed in their father's footsteps and purchased the company and took over its management. Now doing business as Jorgenson Industrial Companies, S.S.P. Inc. maintains several divisions, including Jorgenson Material Handling, Jorgenson Lockers and Jorgenson Machine Tools.

1997

New Digs

We moved and bought the building where we are currently located and paid off the stock. We were renting Jean’s building, wanted to be rid of her. As the kids got older, Bunny (Roger's wife) got more active in the company.

750,000, 7 or 8 employees – 4 or 5 outside salesmen, we sold everything. Now over 60. "I made the decision to separate that. I just found out you can’t sell everything, you’ve got to be more specialized." We built it up into divisions.

1989

A Proposition

It was 1989 when Roger and his wife finally took over the business and renamed it Jorgenson Industrial Companies.

In 1988, Jean decided she wanted to get out of the business and approached Roger about buying the company. Roger carefully considered the proposition. He hired a consultant and lined up 2 business partners. But the 2 partners later backed out and it looked as if the deal would fall through. Finally after more than a year of research, Roger decided to go it alone. He sold his cattle and borrowed money against the family farm to finance the deal.

1980

A New Salesman

Roger Jorgenson, a rancher and former school teacher, was working as a hardware buyer for a local Salt Lake City company when a factory representative that he knew put him in touch with Leon Roskelley, who ran the MR Roskelley machinery business. In 1980, Roger went to work for him and was trained as an outside salesman. Roger was new to selling but quickly learned and became successful.

Six months after Roger joined the company, Leon decided to retire so he sold the machinery inventory to his niece Jean, who ran their sister company, Roskelley Supply, a racking and shelving business. Roger and the other salesmen went to work for Jean, selling racking and shelving as well as machine tools.

1975

DBA Roskelley Supply Co. Inc.

Leon Roskelley, Jean's uncle, owned M.L. Roskelley which had its inception in 1975. The Roskelley name has been in the Intermountain region since and is highly associated with machine tool businesses. Leon was involved with many quality lines, such as Graziano and Chicago Dreis & Krump. He was one of the nation’s oldest "Little Scotsman" service dealers. Leon set up a national distribution system and even imported a lathe from Spain called the "Roskelley".

1967

SSP, Incorporated
