Sweed, an Oregon-based manufacturer of wire and cable recycling systems, has announced that Christopher Simon has joined the company as a recycling system sales representative. Since 1997, Simon has been working in the recycling industry in various roles, including sales, design, project management and installation, enabling him to “hit the ground running” to help customers find the solutions for their applications, the company says.
As a recycling system sales representative, Simon will ensure that the company offers the right solutions for prospective customers’ unique needs and equipment. His primary focus at Sweed will be selling recycling systems for wire and other nonferrous materials.
"Since we run a nonferrous recycling and wire processing system at our facility in Oregon, we understand the process and can offer the best solutions for each application," Simon says.
"The leadership at Sweed understands that we are partners with our customers," Simon continues. "They focus on long-term relationships and customer support."
According to the company, that focus, along with its track record for high-quality custom equipment, has given Sweed a reputation as a world-class equipment supplier.
"One of the main reasons I am so excited to join Sweed is their reputation in the industry," Simon says. "When working with customers, I can leverage the years of experience internal to Sweed."
He adds that the company also is known for innovation, service and U.S.-based parts and manufacturing.
Simon speaks to the advantages of Sweed’s demonstration and testing area, which includes a full-scale wire recycling line. "It's great having the ability for customers to send us material to process,” he says. “Customers can also visit our facility and watch their material process themselves. Every customer has different materials, so it's powerful to demonstrate our systems with their specific materials. It also lets us maximize system efficiency and effectiveness for our customers."
Sweed says almost all its scrap chopping machines and wire recycling equipment are available for testing, which means customers can see the equipment's capabilities before committing.
Regarding his new employer, Simon says, "We have a great team, from leadership to parts and service to marketing. It's easy to stay motivated when you are working with such a dynamic group of people that care."
