Imtra, the New Bedford, Mass.-based manufacturer and importer of products for the marine, energy and transportation markets, has bolstered its sales team after experiencing 25 percent sales growth over the last year and in preparation for the retirement of long-serving sales and service representative, Dick Davidson.
“We are grateful for the decades of commitment and dedication Dick has shown our company and our customers,” CEO Eric Braitmayer said in a statement. “The customer always comes first at Imtra and Dick has been integral in providing the highest level of service to our customers.”
Davidson spent more than three decades assisting customers in California, the Southwest region and throughout Asia.
Will Vrooman, a 20-year marine industry veteran, will step into the role. Vrooman comes to Imtra after serving as national sales manager for Maxwell Marine, handling new-business development and client service. Ben Guan-Kennedy also joined the company as its new, in-house video content producer.
In addition, Imtra has added to its customer service, technical support, and shipping and warehouse teams to improve the overall customer experience.
“[Davidson’s] existing accounts will be in good hands with Will and by adding Ben and the seven other new hires in New Bedford, Imtra will be able to provide a greater level of service to the industry,” added Braitmayer.
