Candie Kirkeby


As head of Counter Sales, Candie is responsible for the management of our showroom making sure all products are priced, stocked, and positioned just right. She assists our industrial customers in finding and deciding which tool is right for the job, and works with customers on volume pricing. As the the showroom is the first place our customers enter the building, she is generally the welcoming smile for AIS.

Additionally, Candie researches and tracks special products, pulls products quickly so customers don’t wait, and contacts our customers when their will call orders are ready. Candie came to the great state of Colorado in 1986 – after 36 years she’s considered to be an honorary Colorado native. Candie has had only two jobs since moving to Colorado and both have been in the industry… first at an Ace Hardware store and then at AIS. Outside of work, Candie likes to walk in the wilderness, spend quality time with her grandson, play with her dogs Boss and Rupert, as well as take care of her yard.
