Fiberglass pipe company increasing sales team to keep up with demand
Flowtite fiberglass pipe (FRP), manufactured by Thompson Pipe Group, added two sales team managers in preparation for strategic growth in the water pressure and sewer/gravity markets.
"The need for corrosion-resistant pipe is continuing to grow. Adding experienced sales managers to our existing team is a key part of Flowtite’s plan of sustainable growth," said Flowtite Executive Vice President of Sales Mike Leathers.
Flowtite hired Andrew Boer, an experienced sales manager in the water transmission market, to manage the company’s efforts in the Midwest. Boer’s title is sales manager, and his territory includes multiple states. Prior to joining Flowtite, he worked in sales for U.S. Pipe and was responsible for bringing in key stakeholders for the Missouri River Waste Water Treatment Plant in Omaha, Neb., an extensive plant project with diameters as large as 64 in. Boer is a graduate of the University of Louisville, and is based in St. Louis.
Joe Pettet is Flowtite’s new sales manager for the Gulf States Region. His territory includes Florida, Mississippi, Alabama and Louisiana. Pettet left Advanced Drainage Systems (ADS) to join Flowtite. During his five years at ADS, he launched a new product line, and doubled his territory in annual sales. Additionally, he served as a sales manager for Sioux Chief, a Missouri-based manufacturer of commercial and residential plumbing supplies. Pettet is a graduate of Missouri State University, and is based in Orlando, Fla.
