About Us

“Local,” “Independent,” “Mom-and-Pop,” “Woman Owned, Minority Owned”

These are some terms that have been used to describe AVE Solutions. We are proud to claim them all!


We are a Michigan-based company serving customers throughout Michigan. Our sales and services help support the local economy. We also believe in giving back to the communities we serve by volunteering our time and donating goods to local charity organizations.


We carry thousands of popular, high-quality name-brand office supplies, janitorial supplies and detention supplies. Our independent status allows us to provide our clients with great products at great prices. More importantly, we can provide personal service that the national chains stores can’t match.



We are a family owned and operated business, and we treat our customers like family! Hands-on owner Carol Kirkland has built the business by focusing on developing personal connections toward her goal of establishing AVE Solutions as the go-to resource for products, prices, and people. “My favorite part of my work is interacting with friendly customers and seeing the many ways they transform their skills and interest into lucrative businesses. We are proud to be able to help them achieve success,” Carol explains.

Woman Owned, Minority Owned
