Prudential Overall Supply, Irvine, California, recently marked its 89th anniversary. The family-owned and operated independent has made remarkable progress since its founding in 1932 by John D Clark as a one-man operation. Today, Prudential is a nationally branded industrial operator that serves around 28,000 customers coast to coast.
Last year, Clark’s grandson, also named John Clark, succeeded his father, Dan Clark, as CEO. Dan continues to serve as company chairman. The younger Clark says he’s grateful to many associates in the industry that helped Prudential achieve growth in the past year, despite the Covid-19 pandemic.

“Prudential Overall Supply is proud to be able to celebrate our 89th anniversary this year,” Clark said. “One of our main objectives each year is to close the year stronger as a company, so we can better support our customers. Through much effort from our employees and suppliers, we believe we were able to achieve this in a challenging year. This is a testament to the strength and flexibility of our organisation.”
Clark added: “We thank every supplier for their dependability, every customer for the trust they have in Prudential, and we are ever grateful to each employee for their hard work and effort so that we can best serve our customers.”
In a Textile Services magazine interview last year, after he became CEO, Clark said he planned to continue the company’s successful growth strategy, including promoting staff from within. Click here to read the full article
