SARCO Inc. – How It All Began

“Cholly” Steen looks back on the Genesis of his surplus empire.

SARCO, Inc. is famous for the amount and diversity of surplus and new made items they offer. One of the largest movers of surplus in the world, including machine gun parts, I have often wondered how they got their start. During a recent visit to SARCO, Inc. I had a chance to learn of the humble beginnings from the man who founded the company, Charles “Cholly” Steen himself. It’s a fantastic story you will not want to miss! Keep an eye out for more coverage as we go behind closed doors to explore the inner workings of SARCO, Inc.!
