At Van Mark, the real secret behind our industry leading tools, is the team of employees who work diligently each day.  From the production and logistics employees, who build and ship the products; to the customer service staff, who support distributors and our loyal end users.  All of which depend on our tools to be of the highest quality.

Van Mark consists of many team members who have anywhere from 20 to 40 years of service.  These key employees provide mentoring and training to new team members.  This ensures that Van Mark will continue to grow toward the future providing the quality that consumers expect and deserve.

At Van Mark, we value our employees, and what makes each of them unique.  Look for future blogs that will focus on different team members, providing more insight as to why we consider each team member so significant to our continued success and growth. Be sure to follow us on facebook and twitter for updates.
