Albert Pariser established Pariser Industries in 1971. Today, the company is co-owned by his sons, Andrew and Scott. Many of Pariser’s products originated from Albert’s first company in the 1960s, Anscott Chemical.
Andrew graduated from the University of Maryland in 1972 and joined his father to build a successful business. After learning about textile knitting, finishing, dying, and the cut and sew industries, Andrew was able to propel the company into new fields. He was also instrumental in the start-up of the water and wastewater treatment division. As co-president with his brother Scott, Andrew currently oversees corporate administration, research/new product development, manufacturing, and all commercial laundry sales and servicing.
Scott joined Pariser, alongside his brother and father, upon graduation from the University of Maryland in 1976. He created the on-premise laundry, institutional laundry, and housekeeping lines. He also expanded the dry- and wet-cleaning programs. As co-president with his brother Andrew, Scott heads the sales and marketing department. Under Scott’s guidance, the sales team grew to cover an extensive spectrum of trades that serves hundreds of customers in expanded regions.
Brett joined Pariser after graduating from Arizona State University in 2008. To gain familiarity with the company’s offerings, Brett initially worked on sales and service accounts. As vice president, he manages day-to-day operations, the parts/equipment department, and builds relationships within the company and with its customers. He strives to continue representing Pariser’s positive, family-based image as the company looks ahead into the 21st century.
