If you could write your own job title that best describes what you do here at Sidco, what would it be?
Filter Sales Specialist.
What is your previous work experience? How does it translate to serving the customers in our industry?
I have always worked in sales and manufacturing in some capacity. Before Sidco Filter, I worked for a company that primarily built State DOT Highway snowplow trucks for various state agencies. We would receive a bare chassis and install everything needed to plow snow. This includes plows, dump bodies, emergency lighting, hydraulics, salt spreaders, GPS systems and cameras to keep an eye on everything the trucks are doing. We manufactured onsite the plows, dump bodies, and salt spreaders.
I have also done sales of gas control valves, inlet guide vane actuators, and accessories for the gas turbine market. During this time, I visited many gas turbine sites across the US and understand the challenges of gathering critical information needed to get items quoted.
What do you enjoy about the work you do at Sidco?
I am very excited to be here at Sidco! The team and work environment are friendly, supportive, and helpful. It has been enjoyable to meet and interact with customers, and I look forward to talking with you in the near future if we have not already connected.
What do you enjoy doing when you are not working?
My wife and I have four children, ages 16, 14, 12, and 10. All are involved in hockey, soccer, and lacrosse, so my weekends are usually spent in the car traveling to games.
What volunteering or passion projects do you enjoy outside of work?
I spend my free time working on remodeling projects on my house and yard work.
Any other fun facts about you?
We have a Bernese mountain dog named Stowe. He is named after the place my wife and I got engaged; Stowe, Vermont.
Bob is happy to discuss quote requests, product inquiries, and new product development with you!
