Richard (Dick) Jacobson established Arizona Sun Supply Company in 1990. Dick owned and operated several sunscreen shops in the Phoenix Metropolitan area before creating a partnership with Twitchell Corporation ( U.S. maker of Textilene brand fabrics) and North Star Company (custom roll former and window screen frame manufacturer,) forming a wholesale company.
As the Phoenix Metro area continued to grow so did Arizona Sun Supply Company. Before long Dick had added swinging and sliding screen doors, pet grilles, aluminum and fiberglass insect screen, Slide-Co window and door parts and other necessary screen related materials.
In 2002 Dick started making plans to retire to Boulder City, NV to be closer to his brother. In December of that year he sold the business to Todd Franklin who currently owns and manages the business.
Todd worked for 12 years with a successful family owned business and had the opportunity to work in sales, marketing, operations, and ultimately general management when the business sold to Textron, a fortune 500 company. After two years in a corporate environment, Todd realized he wanted to run his own business, so he quit Textron and after six months of searching, found and purchased Arizona Sun Supply. The continued success of the business has come from many factors but none of it would be possible without our exceptional workforce, with key contributors in each of our departments. The glue for the company now resides with Eric Quan, (Operations Manager) who worked together with Todd in the 90’s and stayed in contact over the years. In 2015, with the company growing and needing manufacturing/operations excellence, Todd asked Eric to join his team, which he fortunately accepted. Eric has literally transformed the company with improved processes and operational excellence and continues to treat the company as his own.
The company has grown to 20+ employees with many opportunities ahead of us for increased expansion. Key contributors to our significant growth comes from architectural shade cloth sales, made to order screens sales, and our manual/motorized drop shade. We continue our pursuit of being best in the business by providing superior customer service, quality products and competitive pricing.
We treat all customers with respect, honesty and a strong desire to meet their product needs. Give us a chance to earn your business with the most responsive and personalized service in the industry.
