Western Territory Changes

Western territory changes are coming at the end of December.  Bob Hartmann is retiring from Fall Protection Systems after many years of valued service. Bob provided many customers with solutions for fall protection as well as excellent client management.  We wish Bob all the best in the future and him for his years of dedicated service.

In his place we have brought Chris Eberle on the team to take over the Western Territory (Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Utah, Arizona, Nevada, and California). Chris is a sales professional with several years of industrial sales experience. He has been working with Bob to make sure that the transfer of account management goes smoothly and seamlessly. If you have not spoken with Chris yet, and are in need of fall protection in the west please contact him. You can reach Chris at 314-942-8795 or by email at ceberle@fallprotectionsystems.com.
