Doleco USA has added two new sales management professionals to its team.
Tom Haughs has joined the company as vice president of sales and Bob Abrahamson is the company’s new west coast account manager.
Doleco USA is a 2-year-old subsidiary of Dolezych GMBH, an 82-year-old German-based global supplier of lifting and load securement technologies.
“The U.S. market offers great potential for expanding our reach and this move underlines our commitment to becoming a major player here,” said Ralph Abato, president of Doleco USA. “Our new sales team members, Tom Haughs and Bob Abrahamson, bring a wealth of experience and knowledge of the North American market to help us enhance our client base.”
“I started in this industry almost 30 years ago and have worked for several cargo control companies in the heavy duty trucking arena,” said Haughs. “As a team, we have deep knowledge of the industry for both cargo restraint and lifting slings and know what the market needs. Our goal is to provide high quality, durable products that will increase lifting and load restraint safety, improve productivity and reduce operating costs. We look to provide those products that others cannot or will not support.”
Abrahamson brings more than 40 years of industry experience to his role, including 17 years of service for a trailer manufacturer where he developed an in-depth understanding of the customer side of the business.
“We have a great team in place with Ralph Abato as our president who has more than 32 years of industry experience,” said Abrahamson. “Together, we bring more than 100-plus years of skills and experience to help meet our clients’ load securement and lifting needs.”
