Rahway, NJ (PRWEB) May 30, 2014
NJ based A&M Industrial recently announced that Alan Schlecter has joined the company as the Director of Business Development. He brings over 40 years of experience in the industrial distribution market to A&M and to their customers.
Schlecter grew up in an apartment over the family hardware store in Garwood, NJ. When he eventually assumed the ownership role of A. Schlecter Hardware, he noticed that a growing number of area industrial customers were asking for products that they did not stock. He quickly changed the business model to stock heavy duty industrial supplies, and his business grew.
Schlecter successfully expanded his hardware store and in 1995 sold it to Turtle & Hughes, where he stayed on as the Vice President of National Accounts in their Integrated Supply Division.
“The key to a successful relationship with a national customer is being responsive and having a dedicated team of people who will check their inventory for specific items on a regular basis,” said Schlecter. He introduced and managed this integrated service program to companies with multiple locations and complex logistic requirements.
He will now expand service programs by applying his industrial product and national inventory management expertise to the growing A&M regional customer base.
Alan Schlecter can be reached at A&M Industrial for a consult at 732-245-2848.
