Metro Striping Solutions’ CEO, Angelo Samuels, began his journey into entrepreneurship as many do – working for someone else. He spent time and energy learning this craft, gaining experience and building relationships in the road marking industry. After more than 20 years in the business, Angelo opened the doors to Metro Striping Solutions on October 1, 2018.
Experience in Pavement Marking
Angelo’s first experience in road marking and pavement marking was in 1994 when he took a job with a company called Pavemark. At that time, thermoplastic technology was relatively new and was growing quickly. He then worked for Dennison which was acquired and became a part of Avery Dennison. Ennis Paint eventually acquired many North American manufacturing plants from such respected names as Avery Dennison. Through his years working with some of the biggest players in the thermoplastics industry and being tasked with building plants for these companies, Angelo learned the trade inside and out and knew he had a unique set of skills and the foundational knowledge to start his own business.
