Putzmeister America, Inc. has announced a few key personnel additions to its new Houston, Texas location.
Putzmeister has hired Mike Hall as a product manager and Scott Blaise as a parts sales manager. Most recently working 25 years for Continental Mixers, Hall joins Putzmeister with more than 30 years of industry experience. In his new role, Hall will be responsible for customer service and relations; product design and performance improvements; improving the manufacturing process at the Monterrey, Mexico plant; and establishing an assembly process at the Houston facility.
Blaise joins Putzmeister with experience in the manufacturing and selling of concrete mixers and service parts in the ready mix industry throughout the U.S. and Latin America. Previously at Continental Mixers and Kenworth for 10 years, Blaise will focus on service and replacement parts for the Americas in his new position. Blaise is also bilingual in Spanish and English, which will aid in servicing customers in Latin America.
“Mike and Scott’s expertise in concrete transit mixers will benefit both Putzmeister and our customers,” said Tom McKernan, Putzmeister’s director of sales and customer service for concrete transit mixers. “We look forward to introducing them to customers and offering their knowledge of the industry.”
Hall and Blaise will be stationed at Putzmeister’s new facility in Houston, Texas, which was recently opened in order to better serve the southern U.S. market. Hall can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org, while Blaise can be contacted at email@example.com.
