Peter Kleine’s team is made up of approximately 12 employees and will continue to do business from its 36,000-square-foot office/warehouse facility, while maintaining its identity as Peter Kleine Company, a division of American Solutions for Business.

The combination of these two companies will enable us to offer existing clients and prospects a more diverse product offering, additional expertise, enhanced ecommerce and technology tools along with an expanded fulfillment and distribution footprint. Their mission fits so well with that of American Solutions for Business, and we see Peter Kleine Company as a fantastic addition. I look forward to working closely with them into the future.”
