Linden Industries has announced that Kirk Kooiman has rejoined its staff as a sales representative. Kooiman brings to Linden over 16 years of experience in the sale of equipment and machinery, seven of which were spent with polyurethane-specific equipment. The balance of his experience is with automation, machine tool and injection molding equipment sales. Kooiman left Linden in Sept. 2003 for a sales position with a competing equipment manufacturer. Prior to that, he worked as a Linden sales representative for over five years. During his years with Linden, Kooiman developed an excellent rapport with Linden's customers based upon his customer-oriented focus. Kooiman's philosophy is that after-sales service is the most important part of his job. "Making sure that the customer is 100% satisfied with their equipment is critical," stated Kooiman.
