Sal Maggio - CEO

Unofficially Salco International began as a gift shop known as Salvatore’s in Rockford, Illinois in May of 1991. Proprietor Sal Maggio recalls how the gift items were selling ok, but a test of "As Seen on TV" products proved to be a great success, soon the business of selling "As Seen on TV" products to local supermarkets and home centers was more profitable then selling the gift products. In 1993 the founder, Sal Maggio moved to Florida and Salco International Officially began operations out of the family garage in July 1993 in the Clearwater, Florida area.

After analyzing the industry, it was determined that there were no distributors for a full line of products, there were distributors of a few items here and there, but no one had a full product line. It was also noticed that there was not an attractive method of displaying the product via catalog, there was only black and white copies and occasionally colored sell sheets. Mr. Maggio began building a full line distribution business; Salco International now carries over 500 "As Seen on TV" products, the largest wholesale variety of "As Seen on TV" products in the world. We are also proud to offer the only full color catalog we know of devoted to "As Seen on TV" Products.

We have been pioneers in the distribution of “As Seen on TV” products and we continued with the launch of our wholesale Website in April of 1999.  The only site in the industry where you can truly purchase “As Seen on TV” products wholesale. Not only can you purchase on line, but through our Drop Shipper Program you can have Salco International handle the fulfillment of your customer’s orders.

Our goal is to provide our customers with excellent service, Competitive Pricing, and huge time and money savings. In addition we provide our suppliers with a method to distribute and market to our niche market without any upfront cost.  We believe in Win, Win situations and we hope you choose to be a winner with us.
