Shurtape Technologies LLC recently announced it has expanded its sales force serving the industrial/construction and electrical (ICE) channel with the addition of Mike Czaja as national sales manager and the promotion of Eric Stone to vice president of sales. The company also announced two recent new hires: John Erwin, national sales manager, who will focus on ICE sales efforts for the eastern half of the U.S., and Nick Baloun, senior national account manager, who will continue to manage a variety of national accounts within the channel.

As national sales manager, Czaja will manage ICE sales efforts for the western half of the U.S. He comes to Shurtape from Stanley Black & Decker, where he gained industry experience as sales manager for the commercial tool division.

“Our ongoing expansion in the ICE channel allows us to continue to meet the market demands for high-quality, innovation tape solutions to get the job done,” said Rob DeVries, senior vice president of sales, Shurtape. “With the addition of Mike to the team, the promotion of Eric, and enhancement of our Shurtape® brand product portfolio, including the introduction of our new EV and LR Series electrical tapes, we have set the stage to continue to service this ever-growing channel.”
