Leominster, MA -The PFERD Tool Mobile program, which was launched in the U.S. ten months ago after proving successful in Europe and Australia, has a new applications Sales Engineer now in charge. Jeffrey R. Kwansy has recently been appointed to implement the company's unique program in North America. Kwansy comes to PFERD from AkzoNobel, a packaging coatings firm in Strongsville, Ohio, where he served several years as a Technical Service Representative. He will report directly to John Thompson, PFERD's National Technical Sales Manager and be responsible for bringing the highest standards of metalworking productivity to end users and PFERD distributor partners directly at their field locations throughout the U.S.
Kwansy is originally from Ohio and earned his BS degree in Business Administration at Kent State University. His work experience includes time as a technician with ICI Paints also in Strongsville, Ohio. He will continue to reside in Valley City, Ohio and travel from his home office there to all scheduled Tool Mobile training appointments which will be primarily in the midwest area for the next several months. As the program expands in the U.S., PFERD plans to launch more Tool Mobiles with additional Applications Sales Engineers under Kwansy's direction.
Jeff has done volunteer work at Fairview Hospital and the Salvation Army in Ohio, still participates in many sports and enjoys welding and grinding mechanical parts to technical specifications for autobody fabrication.
PFERD National Technical Sales Manager, John Thompson, expressed how pleased PFERD was to have Kwansy on the company's training and field technical sales team. "With Jeff having been specially trained and his having access to such a broad complement of our newest tools and metalworking solutions right in his Tool Mobile, our customers and distributor partners will appreciate the value of the process improvements and cost reduction techniques he will be demonstrating to them. Jeff will also have the capabilities and resources to troubleshoot on-site challenges and emphasize important product safety tips", Thompson said.
