Phoenix names Rob Shoemaker rep for stretch wrappers
Shoemaker will manage sales and customer service of the full Phoenix product line of automatic and semi-automatic stretch wrapping products throughout the West Coast.
“Phoenix offers technologically advanced stretch wrapping machinery, engineered by industry veterans that will stand up to any competitive brand,” says Shoemaker. “It is a well established product that I am proud to be introducing to the West Coast.”
Shoemaker brings 15 years prior experience as Orion Packaging System’s West Coast regional manager where he was the number one distributor for 13 years. He was also awarded for setting the all-time record for the most sales in a single month in the company’s 20 plus year history. Shoemaker was strategically involved in several innovative stretch wrapping equipment advancements in the beverage, concrete products and agricultural industry.
Phoenix was recently purchased by Jacek Mucha, founder of Orion Canada, who was instrumental in designing and engineering many advances in the stretch wrapping industry.
“I had the pleasure of working along side Rob for 15 years with Orion, and I can honestly say there is no one on the West Coast that has a better understanding of this industry,” says Mucha. “Shoemaker is a valued partner and we are happy to have him on the Phoenix team.”
Phoenix has focused its sales and marketing strategy on providing a dynamic technical sales support system for its distributor network. “It was important to find the right person who could compliment this approach,” states Mucha. “Rob fits this system perfectly.”
