About Us

George photo.jpeg

George has been involved in the Industrial Market for over 43 years with  33 years in Florida and 10 years as National Sales Manager for a large UK Company. George has represented over that period of time a multitude of manufactures.


George maintains a personal relationship with each distributor. He is constantly appraising them of all items available which relate to their business. Any promotions or specials are faxed or e-mailed according to preference to each distributor and then reviewed in person. This provides his customers with constant and immediate manufacturers' updates.


Spending more than 12 years in the Industrial cutting tool industry from design to applications to sales and management, George has come to believe in a strong "hands-on" approach to sales. By setting aside time to help with open houses and product seminars, George is able to fortify the relationships he has built with his distributors effectively proving that the "hands-on" approach is the way to go.
