Will oversee sales, customer support in New York, New England


November 10, 2005 (Norristown, PA) - Philadelphia Gear, a full-service provider of gearing and power transmission solutions, announces the hiring of Richard Sass for the position of Sales Representative for the Northeast Region, encompassing New England and New York State.


In his new position, Sass will be responsible for various business development initiatives in the region and adding value to the partnership between PG and its customers in the Northeast region. By playing a problem solving and advisory role as it relates to their gearing and gear reducer needs, Sass will serve an important function for customers who have lost a substantial amount of their onsite expertise due to downsizing and other attrition factors in recent years

Sass has more than 30 years of sales experience in the gearing industry, most recently as Eastern Regional Sales Manager for Horsburgh & Scott, manufacturers of industrial gears and application engineered gear drives. As Regional Sales Manager, Sass was responsible for supervising and training support personnel for H&S in its mid-Atlantic sales territory.


"Rich's previous sales experience with Horsburgh makes him an ideal fit for our Northeast Region sales position," commented Carl Rapp, President and CEO, Philadelphia Gear Corporation. "He brings not only an extensive knowledge about equipment used in some of our key markets, power generation, for example, but has an extreme dedication to serving his customers as well. Rich was the logical choice from our point of view, and I'm certain he'll make a positive impact on the PG customers within the Northeast Region."


Sass's educational background includes a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Education from Lea College. He will be serving his territory from his sales office in Connecticut.


A founding member of the American Gear Manufacturers Association (AGMA), Philadelphia Gear offers products and services found in use worldwide; from conveyor gear drives used in long wall coal mining operations, to emergency repair services critical to the power generation industries. The company serves thousands of customers across the globe from its regional service and manufacturing facilities in New Castle, DE; Birmingham, AL; Chicago, IL; Houston, TX; and Los Angeles, CA.
