Then and Now
Mass Management’s roots are firmly planted in the hardware retail, home center, and paint chain market segments. In 1986 David McGinnis started his own manufacturing representative agency, McGinnis & Associates. A few years later he started a sister company, McGinnis & Associates Sales and Service, which provided service for manufacturers to Lowe’s. Eventually, this led to helping manufacturers by managing sales and marketing at a national level.
Between 2016 and 2019 McGinnis & Associates Sales and Service transitioned to the manufacturing side becoming Mass Management, LLC and is now located in Fort Mill, SC. We currently handle the manufacturing, warehousing, sales, and distribution of the brands Rust Patrol and Mountain Mike’s Remedies. Directly working with the inventors, we ship our products worldwide into over 15 countries.
In 1971, David McGinnis started at DAP Products, Inc. as a sales trainee and was quickly promoted through the ranks to General Sales Manager. After eleven years with the company, he became Vice President of sales for Manco Tape Company, Inc. Later in 1986, he started his own rep agency, McGinnis & Associates, and grew it to cover fourteen states employing 32 sales representatives. With over 49 years of experience, David now presides over Mass Management, LLC as CEO.
Michael McGinnis grew up under his father’s tutelage learning the family business. Attending trade shows and making sales calls through college, he learned all aspects of sales and service, making people and relationships a primary focus. In 2016, Michael McGinnis went to work for David as Vice President of sales for McGinnis and Associates, and became President of Mass Management, LLC in 2019.
Paula Holmes went to work with McGinnis & Associates in 2010, entering invoices, reconciling commissions, and general office duties. Coordinating show programs between the manufacturer and the distributor gave her a good grounding for her future with Mass Management. Continuing these tasks, along with so much more, Paula is an integral part of our operations.
