Aristotle George Aivaliotis began working for the family owned business, Avalotis Painting Company, in 1976 in Pittsburgh. He started his apprenticeship in IUPAT Local Union 530 in Beaver, Pennsylvania in 1977 and continued his training in East Chicago until he returned to Pittsburgh and Avalotis Painting in 1979.
He worked as an industrial painter until being promoted to project management in 1986 on the Beaver Valley nuclear plant project. Upon the completion of the new construction phase of that project, he returned to the company’s corporate offices as vice president of operations and administration.
In 1992, the company’s founder and Aivaliotis’ father, George, retired as president. Aristotle and his brother Chris assumed the day to day operations of Avalotis Painting Company as president and vice president, respectively. They continue to serve in these positions today.
Aivaliotis is married with three children.
