Airpes, a manufacturer of lifting, weighing and below-the-hook equipment, has expanded its North American network with the appointment of three new sales representatives based in Chicago, Louisville, and Boston.
Justin Wieners, of Louisville, Kentucky; Trevor Deck, of Chicago, Illinois; and Tim O’Leary, of Providence, Rhode Island have joined a growing team of individuals and businesses that represent Airpes in various regions and end user marketplaces.
Airpes has three principle lines of business, namely pre-engineered weighing and monitoring kits for overhead cranes, including load cells, overload protection, readouts, and data loggers; engineered lifting devices for wind turbine erection; and engineered below-the-hook devices, such as coil grabs, rotating blocks, and magnets.
“We love dealers,” said Tad Dunville, general manager at Airpes Americas. “The relationship is very important because we bring low cost and high-performance products, while the dealers bring a great deal of skill in understanding the application and knowing the end users. I feel really strongly that all parties—Airpes, dealers, reps, and customers—will prosper if we remember that and communicate often. All of our reps will focus on supporting crane builder and service organizations.”
Wieners will principally cover an automotive and aluminum hotbed including Cincinnati, Louisville, Dayton and Indianapolis, where parts and assembly facilities are abundant. He will also target the primary metals market and introduce the product range to decision makers at aluminum and steel mills. Deck’s focus will be more exclusively metals in an area incorporating Chicago, Milwaukee and Northwest Indiana. O’Leary’s market is more unique, with a number of paper mills and U.S. Navy shipyards on his watch.
