Lester Sales will represent Chalfant Manufacturing Co., Avon, OH, and its cable management solutions including ladder tray and wire basket systems in western Pennsylvania and West Virginia. Lester Sales, now a nine-state agency, recently entered the western Pennsylvania and West Virginia markets via the recent acquisitions of Cardel-Criste and specified assets of Onesource Paolicelli. Prior to the acquisition, Cardel-Criste represented Chalfant.
The new territory, managed by Marcus Sanata, territory development manager, will have significant resources, and experience, in the market and the region’s most experienced cable management team. Sanata said in the press release, “Cardel-Criste has grown the Chalfant business in the territory significantly over the past few years and when we were introduced to the line and learned more about the company, the product offering and the unique labor optimizing systems we were convinced that our team could more effectively help contractors and that we can help our distributors serve their customers. We’re excited about the opportunity.”
John Meyers, regional VP, Chalfant said in the release, “We’re excited about the new opportunity to expand our reach in the market. We’ve had a great relationship with Mike Criste and the Cardel-Criste team and helped many contractors in this market. With Marcus’ expanded team, their cable tray and wire basket experience, and the Lester resources we look forward to continuing serving contractors and distributors in the market.”
