KANSAS CITY, Mo.
, August 1, 2018 – Milbank Manufacturing, a leading manufacturer of electrical products, is restructuring their sales representative coverage to support the company’s long-term growth strategy. Effective August 1, Milbank Manufacturing has named Bell & McCoy Power Solutions the new utility representative for their Oklahoma, Texas, Louisiana, Arkansas and Mississippi territories.
“Bell & McCoy Companies has been a Milbank partner for more than 20 years. Over the last several years, they have made tremendous investments in their agency to pursue new markets and channels, and we feel their new Power Solutions utility division will serve our growth strategy well into the future,” said Chris Buelow, VP Sales and Marketing, Milbank.
Bell & McCoy, headquartered in Houston, Texas, has represented Milbank in the electrical distribution channel for more than 20 years, covering Oklahoma, Texas, Louisiana, Arkansas and Mississippi, as well as the Memphis area. Included in the tremendous investments was a new headquarters in Houston that increased Bell & McCoy warehouse space to more than 192,000 square feet.
“Our new utility division seemed like a natural progression based on our current book of business,” said Chris Coursey, President, Bell & McCoy. “The relationship we have formed with Milbank over the past 20 years has set the foundation for future, mutual growth in the utility industry.”
Bell & McCoy Power Solutions is a new utility division within the agency, to be based in Houston, Texas. This new division is something that was discussed for many years, while representing several manufacturers in the utility market. Sales teams from both companies will be working with internal departments and customers to ensure a smooth transition over the next 30 days.
