Brake maker expands sales team

14 May 2019


Pintsch Bubenzer, a manufacturer of disc and drum brakes for steel cranes and other severe-duty applications, has appointed Mike Sparks as regional sales manager and Jim Fields in service sales.

Both Sparks and Fields have extensive sales expertise relating to electric overhead travelling cranes, says the company, but will also complete extensive training programmes.

Joel Cox, president at Pintsch Bubenzer USA, said: “It’s an exciting proposition for existing and potential customers when one considers the extent of the existing skillsets of Mike and Jim, combined with a product range that is so highly regarded in the crane market that they both know so well and many others besides. We will expose them to the best possible training on our full range of equipment and, importantly, relate it to industry applications out in the field. We’re at the dawn of an exciting new era.”

Sparks said: “The training available was a big factor in me joining the company. This will allow me to be able to ensure our end users get the proper installation, instruction, support, and training with any application needs that they may have—with minimal disruption to production. The biggest challenge I face is learning our vast customer base and the myriad of applications they use so I can offer ways for them to run more efficiently.”

Fields said: “This new role presented an opportunity to bring together the skills I have utilized throughout my career and contribute to a company with a clear growth strategy. I started working in the field nearly three decades ago, when I was responsible for troubleshooting, modernizing, and repairing [EOT] cranes. I have moved into project and service management roles over time and feel well equipped to add value to the customer experience of Pintsch Bubenzer’s varied clients.”
