WAUKEGAN, IL — PEER Chain Company, a family-owned and personally managed industrial chain provider, has announced the return of Arthur Merwitz as Power Transmission Product Manager, effective April 7. Merwitz will direct PEER’s growing chain related product lines that provide product insight and solutions through customer service.
Merwitz first joined PEER Chain in 1996 where he successfully held positions as Regional Sales Manager, OEM Sales Manager, and VP-Strategic Sales. His broad scope of responsibilities included new product development, product branding, business development of key accounts within a series of industries that include Agricultural, Lumber, Poultry, Automotive, Material Handling, and Cotton, to name a few. Throughout his 16 years of service, Art developed strong relationships because of his wealth of industry knowledge, his active membership in the Power Transmission Distributors Association, and his innate ability to build personal relationships.
Merwitz left PEER Chain in 2012 to pursue an MBA with a focus on International Business. While at Keller Graduate School of Management, he continued to be active in Sales Management through relationships with Rx Blue Star Solutions as well as Stellar Materials. Meanwhile, Danny Spungen, PEER’s V.P. of Strategic Marketing, kept after Art, looking for the right opportunity to entice him back.
“Returning to PEER Chain feels like coming back home,” Merwitz said. “The welcome back expression that Glenn and Danny provide makes me feel deeply appreciated. It really motivates me to excel as others do here.”
