Food industry supplier sees growth in key customer service positions
Remco Products Corporation, which has been operating out of Zionsville for over 30 years, has recently undergone significant growth. The plastics company makes color-coded hygienic material handling tools and is the exclusive US partner of Vikan, a hygienic brushware company out of Denmark. The company cites rising demand for color-coded hygienic tools in the food processing industry as the bases for its recent growth.
“Customer support has always been our main focus, and with the additions to our staff in key training and customer service roles, we’re more able than ever to offer our customers the best-in-industry service they’re used to,” said Mike Garrison, Remco president.
Amit Kheradia fills the new position of educational and technical support manager. The position was created to provide support and training to the Remco team, their customers, and their end-users. Kheradia last worked at Talevas Consulting, where he held the position of food safety specialist for the fresh produce sector. He holds over 20 certifications from organizations like the FDA and the British Retail Consortium, and has worked for top-tier companies like ConAgra Foods. Kheradia brings 10 years of food industry experience to the position.
Dan Ollikainen was hired as the human resources manager. He graduated from Purdue University with a degree in organizational leadership. Before Remco, he worked as a human resources generalist for 5 years at Coldwell Banker Residential Real Estate, LLC, and, prior to that, served as an employment manager and coordinator for Hyatt Regency Sarasota.
After nine years at Grainger as an account manager, Matt Morrow became one of Remco’s newest business development managers. Morrow lives in the Memphis, Tenn., area and will be a resource for Remco’s customers in the South.
Dave Gambrall joins Remco from Ray Skillman Auto Group, where he worked as a business/sales manager who helped open a new franchise and oversaw 20 sales team members. Gambrall will take on the business development manager position in the Great Plains states for Remco Products.
Remco looks forward to growing even more in the coming year, along with completing renovations to its Zionsville, Ind., offices to accommodate the growing staff and make the most of the space.
