Adam's previous experience with our products and the industry puts him in a unique position to service Aquatherm’s customers.
Lakewood, NJ (PRWEB) November 22, 2011
Aquatherm Industries, manufacturer of solar pool heaters, announced today that Adam Shagan has been hired as Sales Coordinator as of November 1st, 2011. In his new position, Mr. Shagan will be responsible for both domestic and international shipping logistics for the manufacturer’s worldwide network of dealers and distributors. On top of processing sales orders and coordinating shipments, Adam will work closely with the Sales & Marketing Manager to reinforce current customer relations and provide support as needed.
Mr. Shagan was previously employed at Harter Industries, a former Aquatherm customer and fellow manufacturer of solar pool heaters (Hi-Temp, EZ Heat, and Hi-Tec). Harter Industries recently closed its doors due to the death of President & Founder Don Harter. Mr. Harter was widely regarded as a pioneer in modern polymer solar pool heating collectors, and was instrumental in creating many of the processes still used today in polymer solar thermal manufacturing facilities, including Aquatherm.
Dave Sizelove, President & CEO of Aquatherm, believes “Adam's previous experience with our products and the industry puts him in a unique position to service Aquatherm’s customers.”
While at Harter, Adam became integral to running the company’s day-to-day operations, but also had his hands in sales and marketing as well as new customer acquisition and relations. He prides himself on having helped Mr. Harter grow his once-seasonal manufacturing operation to a year-round production schedule, thanks in part to Mr. Shagan’s efforts to increase sales and modernize shippnig procedures.
“During my 13 years at Harter Industries I was able to develop a strong relationship with the team and products at Aquatherm, and so to bring my industry experience and knowledge to this environment has been very turnkey,” says Shagan. “I’m looking forward to adding my experience to the Aquatherm team and learning as we continue to grow as the leading manufacturer in the industry.”
Aquatherm Industries is the largest manufacturer of solar pool heating systems in the United States, the only U.S. manufacturer of NSF listed solar pool heaters, and the only U.S. solar collector manufacturer to achieve the ISO 9001:2008 quality standard. Aquatherm manufactures several of the industry’s leading brands of solar pool heating collectors, including its flagship brands Solar Industries and Ecosun.
Aquatherm’s entire manufacturing process takes place at its 50,000-square foot technology center in Lakewood, NJ - the most modern facility of its kind in the world.
