Louisville, KY (PRWEB) September 13, 2004
- Northeastern Log Homes, Inc. is expanding its Midwest sales force with a network of full-time Certified Sales Representatives who will market the company's log homes in a five-state region. The states include Michigan, Illinois, Ohio and Indiana as well as Kentucky. The companyÂs model home and offices in LaGrange, Kentucky, outside Louisville, will serve as a regional training-center and headquarters to oversee the operation. With a 60-acre manufacturing facility in Kenduskeag, Maine, Northeastern was founded in 1972 and, in 1976, established a model home and office in Kentucky.
In response to current regional requirements, Certified Sales Representatives will be closer to their customers and able to play a more active, hands-on role in the building process.
Says Jonathan French, Northeastern Log Homes, CEO, "With Certified Sales Representatives working through a regional headquarters in Louisville, weÂll have a team of independent business professionals in place who are able to maintain our product knowledge standards and offer superb local service."
As part of the expansion strategy, the company is recruiting business owners and professionals who work full-time in the log home and other systems-built home industries; residential construction, and real estate sales. The company is also recruiting qualified owners and builders of Northeastern Log Homes who are familiar with the product.
