Kraft Fluid Systems announces the promotion two sales professionals for North America.
Kraft promoted John Juhasz, CFPHS & CFPECS, to Regional Sales Manager for the Ind., Mil., Wis. and Ill. territory. Juhasz will oversee the activities of all Kraft salespeople in the area and will work directly with company suppliers to better meet the needs of the client base.
Juhasz has been with Kraft Fluid Systems for more than 13 years and has excelled as a systems integrator, offering the value-added services that help his clients sell more machines.
Significant growth and expansion have created a need for additional salespeople and support. Kraft’s Vice President of Sales and Marketing, Scott Durand, expressed his enthusiasm saying, “We are excited to have a more focused presence in this geography and believe our clients and organization will greatly benefit from John’s experience, work ethic, and sense of urgency.”
A graduate of The Ohio State University, Juhasz has combined his background in farming with his interests in engineering and business. Juhasz has enjoyed a career in fluid power for more than 20 years.
Additionally, Kraft promoted Brian Shockey to North American Sales Manager for their Electric Drives Division. Kraft’s Electric Drives Division has been supplying electric drive components and systems to the automated guided vehicle market (AGV) for more than 25 years.
Shockey joined Kraft in 2014 with a background in electric automation and fluid power. He has been instrumental in expanding Kraft’s market scope to include machine builders, amusement, and material handling in addition to AGV systems for industrial automation. He has worked to bring several new suppliers to Kraft’s Electric Drives Division. Shockey will oversee Kraft’s electric drive sales team in North America and continue to support his client base. He will work under the direction of Durand.
“Brian’s relationships with clients are exceptional and very hands on,” Durand said. “We are excited to create a more formal structure in an area we have supported for so many years and which very few distributors cover.”
Shockey is a graduate of The Ohio State University with a degree in Mechanical Engineering and has worked in automation and fluid power for more than 25 years.
