BrassCraft Manufacturing Company Awards Sales Rep Firms For Decades of Service


NOVI, MI – A vital key to the success of both BrassCraft Manufacturing Company and its customers is the decades-long partnerships the company has forged with many of its sales rep firms.
BrassCraft Manufacturing is celebrating this success with milestone awards for service tenure. Fourteen firms, with between 10 and 65 years of service, received awards. Of the fourteen, eight are being recognized for at least 40 years of service.

Four of these companies have received special recognition for exceptionally long service:

Platsky Company, Inc. of Westbury, New York received an award for representing BrassCraft Manufacturing for 65 years – since 1946, the year Brasscraft Mfg. was founded.

Following closely with 60 years of service is Friedman & Dorrans Sales, Inc. of Wheeling, Illinois.

Receiving awards for 55 years of representation are E.B. Lingel Company of Wellesley, Massachusetts and W.T. Leonard & Associates of Chesterfield, Missouri.

“These long-standing relationships with our sales rep organizations are a source of real pride for us, and are important for a number of reasons,” says Jim Pletcher, Vice President of Wholesale Sales. “Enduring relationships demonstrate the trust our representatives have for BrassCraft® products and services, and confirm the lasting value our customers have received from our company.
