Chuck Russ Joins Metal Zinc as Sales Manager
(Houston, TX) – Houston-based HVAC&R manufacturer Metal Zinc LLC has hired Chuck Russ as its national sales manager. Mr. Russ has previously worked as vice president of sales and marketing for global entity Goodman Manufacturing, and has also had sales and marketing roles at Standard Supply and ACR Supply. Overall, Russ’s career experience accounts for more than 30 years of history in the heating and air conditioning business.
According to Ryan Walsh, president of Metal Zinc, Russ has been an effective point man for his company’s sales team.
“Chuck Russ has brought us a wealth of knowledge and has been crucial in directing the sales team in a focused and effective manner,” says Walsh. “Since joining the company in January, he’s been helping Metal Zinc develop effective and long-lasting partnerships with our customers.”
Russ has been instrumental in developing Metal Zinc’s marketing, and has recently spearheaded creation of the company’s website and online presence, which will offer distributors an opportunity to access special promotions on a monthly or weekly basis.
“Our product line at Metal Zinc continues to grow and because of our lean manufacturing, we can offer significant deals to wholesale customers.” says Russ. “Our goal is to deliver quality products and superior service to HVAC&R distributors that enables them to make more money. We encourage them to call us first on the metal products they need. If it’s something that we currently manufacture, we will save them money.”
Metal Zinc warehouses a large inventory in its 60,000 square-foot manufacturing facility in Houston, and offers a weekly delivery run to major cities in Texas, Oklahoma and Louisiana. Distributors using this service can order the products they need “just in time” rather than purchasing an entire truckload that ties up resources. Delivery of any order totaling $1,500 or more is free to these areas.
