Speedgrip Chuck Co. Appoints New Sales Representatives
In the face of retiring sales reps, the company has announced two new representatives covering the territories of Indiana, Michigan and Ontario.
As longtime sales representatives retire, Speedgrip Chuck Co. has announced new representation in two of its key markets, effective at the beginning of 2020.
In the state of Michigan and the Canadian province of Ontario, H&N Associates has been selected to replace Marathon Industrial Sales. Principals John Kaczmarek and Leon Buckberrough of Marathon Industrial Sales are retiring after representing Speedgrip Chuck for over 40 years.
“Although John and Buck will be difficult to replace, H&N Associates brings years of experience along with a sound reputation to this important territory,” says Kevin Snyder, Speedgrip president.
H&N Associates is led by Don Noble. Other representatives of H&N Associates include Randy Richardson and Ron Juros. In addition to Speedgrip, H&N Associates represents reputable manufacturers of cutting tools, toolholders and other machine tool accessories.
In Northern Indiana, Greg and Matt Byington of Jack Dustman Associates are replacing longtime Speedgrip representative Steve Nichols of Nichols Associates.
“Greg and Matt Byington are already representing Speedgrip in Southern and Central Indiana, so the transition will be a smooth one,” says Allen Boehnlein, Speedgrip’s director of sales.
