Welcome to Saint Cloud Industrial Products, Inc.  We have adopted the acronym “SCIPI” which we pronounce “SKIPPY” to identify our name to team members, suppliers, and friends. SCIPI has a storybook beginning, it was established by two childhood friends, Ken Gross and Earl Buttweiler who each contributed $500 in 1959.  It has grown to become an international company employing 170 team members in six states and Canada.  We have taken a road less traveled and adopted an employee ownership philosophy.  We are 100% employee-owned.  Our nontraditional approaches do not stop there.  SCIPI is a mini mutual fund.  We have three business units under our umbrella: 1) North Central Bus & Equipment, Inc. (NCBE), a dealership specializing in the sale and service of Blue Bird school buses, shuttle buses, and medium-duty truck equipment.  2) Monumental Sales, Inc. (MSI), a fabricator of cemetery memorials, granite counter tops and custom limestone products.  MSI has 15 retail stores throughout the upper Midwest.  3) Parts Midwest, Inc. (PMI), an original equipment warehouse distributor of automotive and light-duty truck accessories.  Vehicle Personalization of Canada (VPOC) division of PMI provides contract sales representation and sales training to automobile manufacturers throughout Canada.  We believe the secret sauce to our success is our “People First” philosophy which is defined and supported by our Mission and Values.  We invite you to learn more about our unique company by clicking on the links.
