Contech Construction Products Inc. has expanded its national sales force with the addition of 40 new employees. The expansion was needed to respond to rapidly growing geographic market gains as well as new business opportunities, according to the company.
Contech said recruiting efforts got under way last fall to ensure that the new employees are in place and properly trained in preparation for several new product launches in 2008.
Contech has boasted significant and ongoing growth the past two decades, averaging double-digit gains in sales and employee count since 1986. In addition, Contech has expanded its market footprint through the acquisition of more than a dozen companies in the last 10 years, including seven major industry leaders, according to the company.
