Automatic lubrication systems specialist FLO Components Ltd. continues to expand its resources to better serve construction, road building, aggregate, trucking, manufacturing and processing companies in Southern and Eastern Ontario with dual appointments.

The two FLO additions are Greg Pottruff as territory sales manager – South Western Ontario, and Dave Secord as territory sales manager – Eastern Ontario – their primary focus will be to increase local availability of technical support to customers and to build FLO’s client base in their respective territories.

Based in London, Ont., Pottruff has acquired extensive training and knowledge in direct sales and marketing over the last 18 years in various sales positions. His experience covers a variety of areas, and has allowed him to establish strong relationships with companies from the construction, automotive, agricultural and manufacturing industries. Most recently, as account manager at a bulk fuels and lubricants distributor, Pottruff managed a large Southwestern Ontario territory that spanned from Woodstock to Chatham and North to Exeter.

Working out of Oshawa, Secord brings over 13 years of experience in both sales and sales management positions in the industrial equipment, manufacturing, and automotive sectors – both nationally and internationally. Over the past five years, Secord, in his position as the Canadian District manager for a major manufacturer of lubrication equipment and systems, used his lubrication systems and solutions experience knowledge to help customers improve equipment reliability and reduce unscheduled downtime.

Commenting on the new appointment, FLO components sales manager Steve Matheson says: “Dave and Greg will make an excellent addition to our team of lubrication solutions specialists. Both these gentlemen bring a whole new level of energy and extensive sales and industry experience that will help to further strengthen the relationships with FLO’s existing clients in their respective territories.

“Their technical knowledge and proven work ethic are in sync with FLO’s basic foundation of “Meeting Customers’ Needs Better” making them well-suited for providing our customers with unparalleled technical and sales support,” continues Matheson.

“Dave and Greg will work with our key partners in the industry developing lubrication solutions that address their equipment breakdown related pain and increase machine uptime and profitability.”
