Support for B&J 


MIDDLEBURY, IN, January 2012 – With immediate effect Elizabeth (Betsy) Hansen supports B&J Rocket America as Key Account Manager.

Hansen brings along a lot of experience for her new task. She spent the last 11 years working for a Michigan based distributor of rubber products where she held a variety of positions including customer service, sales, and purchasing. Caitlin Smith, B&J’s sales manager, is excited about the addition to the team: “With Betsy’s experience and background, we feel she is the perfect person to continue building relationships with end users and spreading the message of B&J’s vast line of carbide repair tools and buffing blades”. Hansen‘s job will be the sales of Rocket blades and the further distribution of high-class Rocket carbides. Furthermore, she will strengthen the cooperation with B&J end users in the U.S. market. 

But also the development of new customers and industries is a focus of her activities. Smith adds: “We see opportunities of introducing our Carbides in industries such as belting repair and rubber roll grinding“.
