C.H. Hanson announced changes to its sales management structure and personnel. Based on strong growth through the industrial channel on both Palmgren and CH Hanson branded products over the past several years, the company has hired two regional managers to oversee their national team of industrial manufacturers reps. Patrick Laabs, based in Detroit, MI, will manage the eastern United States, and Ramon Aguilar, based in the Naperville, IL, headquarters, will oversee the western United States. Both men report to Ernie Torkilsen, vice president of sales and marketing.
About Palmgren | a C.H. Hanson Brand
Since 1919 Palmgren products have proven their reliability, efficiency and durability in over 95 years of use by all types of industry throughout the world. Clarence Palmgren was acclaimed for his achievements and contributions to the metal working industry through his innovative designs and patents. He is credited with the design and manufacture of the first machine vises, cross slide and rotary tables that significantly increased efficiency and productivity with metalworking manufacturer’s worldwide.
This created the foundation of innovation and quality that the Palmgren brand is built upon and follows today. So it is no surprise that Palmgren continues to be a market leader not only with our vises and positioning tables but across our whole expanded metalworking product offering.
Palmgren today delivers tools for the generations and solutions that solve the needs of the metal working industry.
Recognizing the value of the brand and the need for supplier consolidation by retailers, CH Hanson acquired Palmgren Steel Products in October 2013.
