For more than 30 years, we have been purchasing products to fill a needfor clients in Central
America. In many ways, our company is,a classic American success story.
McLean International Sales began when Evan D. McLean, a Nicaraguan immigrant opened his doors for business in 1982. He had strong ties to the communities in Central America and
wanted to provide a service for the people and their businesses. ‘
Growth through Personal Relationships
The ability to obtain American made products in Central America was difficult and at times not possible. Through his contacts in the construction industry Evan began offering purchasing services to contractors in Central America. This later expanded to hotels and banks; priding himself on cultivating honest, mutually beneficial relationships and firmly believing that he was willing to work for the client’s best interest, he was able to secure contracts as the exclusive sales representative for some of the most prestigious companies in North America, in turn earning himself a reputation as a shrewd businessman that was fair and easy to do business with.
Expanding our services to custorners
By the early 90’s, Evan was working withlcompanies such as Case, lngersoll Rand, Caterpillar and Terex. The vast array of products was supplying was bedding linens for the hotel industry, cookware, boilers, and commercial air conditioners and refrigeration. ln addition, McLean International continues to offer Tra’ne commercial air conditioners, parts, generators, transfer switches and all of their parts. This allows the client to not just purchase the equipment, but also maintain this equipment. We a_re suppliers of wall paper, carpet, padding and cooling towers.
