About Systems by Storm
A relatively new company, Systems By Storm was founded in April of 2005 by Jay Storm.
Jay brings many years of technical experience to the industry. In high school he worked in two fiberglass shops
building and repairing boats, followed by a brief period of restaurant work as a cook. Then got the opportunity
to become a diesel apprentice at Seattle Truck Repair in 1976 and attended South Seattle Community College for the
four year program. After being a diesel truck mechanic for 13 years, he was introduced to compactors when he
started at GK Equipment in December of 1988 as service manager. There he worked successfully helping the sales people
spec the right equipment, order it, ship it and install it which included startup and training. In his spare time
he handled parts and warranty while managing 2 technicians. In 1994 he went into sales during an ownership change
while at GK and after two hard years became successful at that. With yet another ownership change Jay left to
join Blankenship Equipment Repair with 6 years of sales experience. There he set up sales for the company and
worked for 7 years building the company into one of the nations top 5 compactor distributors for Galbreath compactors
. With the loss of Jim Blankenship and the family getting out of sales, Systems By Storm now provides excellent
sales and service to it's customers. Now with several years of success this non advertised business is ready to
go to work for you. WHAT DOES THIS MEAN TO YOU? Only that Systems By Storm has the hands on knowledge
and experience to give you more options and a more cost effective solution to your needs.
