That was when Reinecke hit Ames “with a ton of bricks.” Says Ames, “Clare asked me to take Commonwealth Supply Company to its next dimension and eventually partner with his daughter, Mary Shanaman.” It didn't take long for Ames to decide to take the risk and cross over from the manufacturer's to the distributor's side.
President Shanaman and Executive Vice President Ames became strong business partners.
Shanaman handles the administrative side of the business, while Ames handles operations and sales.
At Commonwealth Supply Company, the partnership extends beyond Ames and Shanaman.

Although she doesn't anticipate an influx of new manufacturers to move into the area, Shanaman does believe that the current climate for existing manufacturers will be better than it has been during the past two years, resulting in a 4-5% growth of her overall sales. "Our sales will continue to be supported by a sales force who have hands-on experience. Our sales personnel have all worked as welders at one time or another," says Shanaman.
