Ravas announces changes in the Americas

Ravas has restructured its operating in the Americas and added field development support.

As part of its strategic plan and commitment to the development of the Americas territories, Ravas has signed three independent sales agencies to focus on the dealer channel development and onboarded new regional sales representation on the West Coast to finish covering the entire US national footprint.

Under the agreements, the three new sales agencies will cover the following geographic areas:

Southern Market Share covers Florida, Alabama, Georgia, South Carolina, North Carolina,

Virginia and Tennessee with Tom Gondi and team.

Southern Representatives covers Texas, Mississippi, Louisiana, Arkansas, Oklahoma, New

Mexico and Arizona with John McCartney and team.

Midwestern Sales covers Illinois, Missouri, Iowa, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Nebraska, Kansas, and North and South Dakota with Bryan Broznowski and team.

Ravas has also welcomed Jana Baervoets to the US sales team. She brings over a decade of experience in the materials handling industry, navigating complex projects and field developments from her time working at Ravas Europe. Baervoets will cover California and serve as support to adjacent West Coast States.

The additions form part of Ravas’ broader vision to increase its geographic coverage. 

The Americas sales division continues to be led by forklift scale industry veteran and current sales manager Joseph Furmansky, while the US marketing department is led by Ravas’ seasoned marketing specialist based in Columbus, Ohio, Jordan McBride.

Ravas USA headquarters in Twinsburg, OH has a new leader, Josh Thornton, who was hired as plant manager to support the company’s commitment to manufacturing excellence, quality and company culture. 

Jose Sarruff continues as managing director and head of Ravas USA.
