September 24, 2013

Ellis Dillen, former vice president at Sturtz Machinery Inc., has been named president and CEO. Speaking with Window & Door at GlassBuild America: The Glass, WIndow & Door Expo, Dillen reported business is picking up for the company, which  was among the equipment suppliers closing sales on the show floor.

“Business is way up the last three months,” added Mike Biffl, national sales manager. “We have had an increase in bid activity and in orders, and have closed a lot of deals since July." As for the type of machinery in demand, “companies are looking for equipment that will allow them to do more processes and keep up with the volume without increasing their workforce,” according to Biffl.
