Now into its fourth decade in business, Pointe Dairy Services Inc.
was established in Grosse Pointe Woods,
Michigan, in April of 1968. The founder, Joseph
P. Selvaggio, Sr., began distributing Sealtest
Dairy Products to stores and restaurants from a
small refrigerated truck. Its humble beginnings
were short-lived as new customers started up
service. The company grew; trucks and drivers
were added. Joe's philosophy was simple:
the customers quality,
give them service, service, service!
In June of 1975, Pointe Dairy Service Inc. began
distributing Borden's Dairy products after
Sealtest closed their Detroit milk production
facility. Enjoying sustained growth and a solid
reputation, Pointe Dairy Services Inc. has
increased it sales steadily every year.
Joe's sons Anthony, President; Alex, Treasurer;
and Joseph, Jr., Vice President of Operations;
have managed the company since 1981.
To meet its high standards of quality, the
company relies on the competence and drive of
its staff. Personnel training, quality
products, and customer service are considered
top priority within the company.
Pointe Dairy Services Inc,
isn't just a dairy distributor anymore. Since
1985, Pointe Dairy Services Inc. has brought on
many different lines of products and has
associated itself with many familiar labels
which are listed on our roster of products.
In August of 1997,
Pointe Dairy Services
Inc, moved into
a new 40,000 square foot distribution center in
Troy, Michigan, which has a cooler, freezer, and
a dry warehousing capabilities with a crossdock
capable of handling up to twenty trucks at one
time. Infrastructure of the warehouse space of
this building has been designed so that it can
be doubled in size very rapidly including the
floor of the warehouse freezer section, which
has a closed glycol system below the concrete
floor for future freezer growth.
