Furnace Manufacturer Appoints New Sales Representative

To the press release below we can add that Mr. Tim Josephs is a very experienced sales rep who in a previous life worked with another North American furnace manufacturer, AFC-Holcroft of Michigan so he brings a wealth of experience to this position. Gord Montgomery of “The Monty Heat Treat News” had this to say; “Because of the geographical size of North America direct sales people can be very expensive when both salary and expenses are included. Independent Sales Rep firms such as “Production Technologies International” are able to spread their expenses across a number of lines making them more cost effective. For this reason I would estimate that over 60% of furnaces sales on the continent are through Independent Sales Rep organizations“. 

“Can-Eng is pleased to announce the appointment of Production Technologies International, LLC as Sales Rep Can-Eng Furnaces International, Ltd. (Can-Eng) is pleased to announce the recent appointment of Production Technologies International, LLC (PTI) as Sales Representative to the territory covering Michigan, Ohio, Indiana, Iowa, Wisconsin, Kentucky and Western Pennsylvania. PTI is owned by Tim Josephs, who earned a Bachelor of Science in Technology from Bowling Green State University and a Masters of Business Administration from Keller Graduate School.
