Today Maly's still holds true to the ideal that Ken started so long ago, "Dedicated to the Salon Professional". Maly's is dedicated to finding new and better ways of bringing the beauty business to higher level and will continue to do that on into the future. As a young salesman for a beauty supply distributor, Ken Maly observed the industry he was working for and thought, "I can do it better." With those entrepreneurial words, Ken and wife Marlene, established his modest wholesale beauty supply business in his garage, in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Maly’s first year sales totaled $100, 000, but by the end of 1978, Maly’s had grown to six sales people, a new "state of the art" distribution center and sales totaling in excess of $1, 000, 000. Ken always attributed much of his accomplishments to the support and assistance of his wife Marlene and their five children, who all pitched in with the never-ending day-to-day tasks that helped propel the company’s growth.
Despite industry consolidation, the next several years proved to be very fruitful for Maly’s, earning the reputation of being one of the largest and most respected distributors in the nation. As expansion efforts continued, Maly’s pioneered new untapped markets throughout the Midwest, recruiting dozens of sales consultants to cover new and explosive markets. Maly's now has two divisions covering 10 states, and is the largest independent, family owned distributor in the country. As Maly's grew, the company became the bench mark of what a great distributor should be, making the customers success their focus.
In a rare and bold move Maly's opened an academy of cosmetology. By offering an exceptionally high standard of education to up and coming hairdressers Maly's could help salon owners find well trained stylists to help fill their staffing needs. Today there are 5 Excel Academies in three states and they are widely considered the best schools in the Midwest.
