Wendt Pro started in 1986 as a Video Production Company just as portable VHS/Monitors began popping up at trade shows and in company board rooms. Founding partners Susan & Alan Wendt, combined their professional backgrounds and expanded services to include Public Relations and Marketing.
Our award winning experiential marketing programs with a single recreational boat dealer, launched a nationwide expansion to more than 100 dealers and manufacturers, creative artwork, newsletters and other direct mail/email and special events components that attracted a team of talented coworkers and expansion into the promotional products arena.
As a Certified Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) we have evolved over the decades and added another team of professionals in the area of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) catering to major civil Road & Bridge projects working directly with Prime Contracting P3s and JV’s. Our skilled team is well established with brand name suppliers, is competent person certified in fall protection and offers a level of technical support that far exceeds most PPE storefronts.
While we are capable of wearing many hats, this vast experience is a tremendous asset in providing our clients a significantly higher-level partnership with nimble response time.
