Manufacturers and Distributors in the Northeast US: Meet Your New BIG KAISER Resource

As a result of continued growth and demand for premium tooling in the Northeast, we’ve bolstered our sales team in the region. We’re excited to welcome Paul Lewis as our new Northeast District Manager. As of November 1, Paul will manage distributor relationships and sales efforts with customers in Eastern New York, Connecticut, Rhode Island, Massachusetts, Vermont, New Hampshire and Maine.

“Paul has a solid background in metalworking processes, as well as a reputation in the Northeast for problem solving customer challenges,” Our East Coast Regional Manager, Fred Messmer, said. “We are quite confident that he will provide the highest level of service and support for BIG KAISER products based on his strong customer commitment and technical expertise.”

Paul’s career in metalworking spans 30-plus years. He owned and operated his own machine shop for six of those and has held positions in product management, sales and support with other tooling manufacturers. He earned bachelor’s degrees in industrial engineering and manufacturing engineering from Wentworth Institute of Technology.

“The opportunity to work for a company that designs, builds and supplies what’s widely recognized as some of the best tooling in the world is one that I couldn’t pass up,” Paul said. “I look forward to bringing my industry experience and regional expertise to BIG KAISER and our customers in the Northeast.”

Paul is married with a seven year-old son and is an avid racquetball player.
