Federal Supply USA, a FEDA member and a member of the Pride Centric Resources buying group, is celebrating 90 years in business.
The company was founded in Chicago in 1931 as Federal China & Glassware Co. by Demetrios Selevredes. Soon after, he was joined in the business with his wife, Violet. His son, Demetrios Selevredes II, joined the business in 1967 and under his leadership it moved into the correctional markets.
By 1999, three generation of family were active in the business: Violet, Demetrios II and his wife, Brenda, and their children, Nicole and Demetrios III. Today, the company operates out of Waukegan, Illinois and has welcomed the fourth generation into the organization.
