Jose ’02 and Gino Alvarez ’08 have started JEA Specialties, specializing in purchasing material for self-performing General Contractors. A big advantage is that the brothers will show you what material will cost and only charge a 10% mark up above cost for Division 10, 11, 12 items, unlike traditional suppliers that can charge up to 40% mark up without disclosing actual cost. Business is based Sacramento, but servicing all of California.
