Taylor Made Systems names regional sales manager

Taylor Made Systems today announced the appointment of Al Unger as a regional sales manager.

Taylor Made Systems today announced the appointment of Al Unger as a regional sales manager, representing Taylor and its Ameritex Fabric Systems subsidiary in the lower Midwest and Southwest.

Unger started in 2004 as an engineer, working on windshield design and application out of Taylor Made Systems’ Gloversville, N.Y., engineering and design headquarters.

“Al’s extensive knowledge of our windshield systems will suit him well in this new position of supporting our customers,” Taylor Made vice president of sales and marketing Mike Oathout said in a statement. “His engineering background will be invaluable as he also supports Ameritex’s line of marine fabric products.”

Unger will relocate to Missouri, where he will establish a regional sales office. His clientele will include boatbuilders in Missouri, Kansas, western Tennessee, Arkansas, and down to the Gulf Coast and west to California.

“Taylor Made and Ameritex are making the moves necessary to respond to our customers’ needs faster and more efficiently,” Oathout said. “We’re intentionally establishing this new regional sales office in proximity to some of the stalwarts of the marine industry. This decision shows our commitment to excellent customer support, responsive engineering and design services, quality products and support for those products.”
