“As a buyer for a major gas utility company in the Chicago and North Shore areas, Root Brothers has always provided excellent service and quality product. Over my 32 year career in supply chain they have always been a successful competitive supplier. As a family owned business they are able to go up against all the major companies in the market and still provide a professional and personal touch.”

The customer service I receive is first class and they help me save money on my bottom line. We have found their service to be dependable, friendly and open over the years. Their attention to detail and willingness to listen to our needs is extremely important to our company.“

“Root Brothers is our “go to” supplier. They consistently provide impeccable day to day customer service, but they really went above and beyond when the City had record flooding back in 2008 and we needed emergency supplies at 10:00 night. They opened the business and got us the equipment needed to keep O’Hare and the City running. Thanks for being a partner who can get us the equipment we need, when we need it.”
