With the addition of 3 new sales agencies and a total of twelve new sales managers or manufacturers’ representatives, General International continues with their ongoing expansion plans that now provide the company with an unprecedented level of coast to coast representation.

Norman Penfield and his team at Ole Pro Sales Agency will be calling on distributors in the southwest including Florida, Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia as well as North and South Carolina.

Terri Pucik and her team at S & S Industrial Marketing will continue to manage the western portion of the country under the supervision of Western North American sales manager David Carchesio.

The net result of these changes is an additional 200+ years of sales experience added to the General International roster and after the addition in 2010 of their new U.S. distribution center in Murfreesboro, TN these latest moves further the companies’ goal to provide easier access to their products with a more complete representation of the line for distributors and customers everywhere in the U.S.
