You would, ultimately, be the first business development representative for their new industrial division.

  • Work with the internal Engineering and Production Group to develop prototypes or retrofit existing production items to meet client specifications; articulate and communicate design requirements/flaws
  • Maintain a conscientious exchange of commercial and engineering information between and within the company and its customers
  • Act as the customer liaison directly interacting with OEM customers and representing the manufacturing division
  • Write orders and queue deliveries
To be successful in this wide-open, untapped market, you offer:
  • An engineering degree from an accredited College or University; Mechanical Engineering/Technologist with OEM Experience preferred
  • Minimum 10 years of agriculture, lumber or construction experience required; either in technical sales at equipment manufacturer/supplier or other equivalent experience
  • Excellent customer relationship skills, written and verbal communication skills
