Meet Our T-MAN Family

In Memoriam: Clarence Lee Trentman 1932-2017

On September 29th, 2017, Clarence Lee Trentman, founder and CEO of Interstate Sales and T-Man Traffic Supply INC passed away. He was 85 years old. Since 1958, Mr. Trentman was actively involved in the road marking and maintenance industry. He established Interstate Sales of Auburn, CA in 1969, T-Man Traffic Supply of El Cajon CA in 2012, and was actively involved in their daily affairs until his passing. His insightful leadership, compassion, quick wit, and concern for his family, employees, and business associates will be his legacy. He will be sorely missed by all that knew him.

Mike, Lee’s son, is still learning the ropes here at Interstate/T-MAN. He keeps great people around him, and let’s them do all the heavy lifting and thinking. Full time since 1990 and part time since 1979, Mike enjoys coming to the office and watching "Team T-MAN" do their thing. If he can’t help you find what you’re looking for, he knows someone that can. Mike can be reached here.
