SipcamAdvan is pleased to announce the appointment of Austin G. Young to the Specialty Products sales team in the northeast. The addition of “Augie” to the team sets the stage for continued excellent customer service and positions the company for its continued growth in 2010 and beyond.
“Augie brings a robust skill set to the position, including both chemical and equipment sales as well as experience as a Golf Course Superintendent,” says Bob Yarborough, National Sales Manager for the Specialty Products group. “He has a proven track record and will be key to our continued growth.” In addition to handling the Turf and Ornamental product line for SipcamAdvan, Augie will also handle the pest management line of wholly owned subsidiary Sostram Corporation.
“I am excited to be a part of SipcamAdvan as the company continues to reposition and rebuild itself on a strong foundation,” says Young. “We have a lot of innovative products and opportunities coming in the near future and we look forward to serving the turf and pest control markets.”
Owned by the Sipcam-Oxon Group, an Italian company known for its formulation and manufacturing expertise, SipcamAdvan uses a distribution-focused marketing strategy to provide fungicides, herbicides and insecticides to the agricultural marketplace. It serves the professional turf, ornamental and agriculture markets, and the home and garden sector in both the U.S. and Mexico. The subsidiary, Sostram Corporation, a longtime producer of industrial biocides, markets an expanding line of environmental care products targeting termites, insects, decay, mold and odor to the professional pest management industry.
