Rebecca (Brown) Dimedio
Rebecca grew up in Pittsburgh surrounded by people who owned small businesses. Her Grandfather owned Siviter Printing in East Liberty and Great Uncle owned and ran US Products Co. They all talked about the businesses at the dinner table. Her older brother and she would play hide and seek in the warehouse when they came to visit USP. It was a way of life for their family and is cinched in by the memories.
Rebecca went away to college in West Virginia and lived in Philadelphia and South Carolina but came home to be closer to family when she had her first child. Her son, Dempsey is the Logistics Manager and daughter Madeleine, who recently graduated from Chatham, is the Administrative Services and Marketing Manager.
COVID-19 has hit the economy and made it difficult to “do business as usual”. During Rebecca’s tenure at USP, the company has worked hard to reduce shipping times from 6 weeks to 2-4 business days and to call each customer and thank them for their business. Her business model is that relationship building is at the heart of each order! Please feel free to contact her and let her help you do business.
USP would like to introduce you to Dempsey DiMedio. He is the son of our Owner, Rebecca DiMedio, grandson to our previous Owner, Leland C. Brown. Dempsey grew up in Aspinwall, PA, right outside the city of Pittsburgh. He graduated from Temple University in 2018 with a degree in Geography and a professional certification in Geographical Information Systems. After college, he worked in deconstruction and contracting jobs until coming to US Products Co. September 2019. He now works in both the office and on the warehouse floor, where he is being cross trained in all things lapping.
Since then, he has jumped right into the business. He received an OSHA Certification, Forklift Certification, and a IATA Shipping clearance. As the Logistics Manager and future owner of USP, he understands the need for fast turnaround times and building relationships with both existing and new customers. He is always willing to go the extra mile and work with the rest of the employees to fulfill orders, both large and small, to ensure fast shipping and excellent customer service! In his spare time, he loves Flyfishing, Camping, biking, and exploring the foothills of Western Pennsylvania.
