Exciting opening at a $1.5 billion company, for a Chemical Sales Rep. in the Toledo, Ohio and Northern Ohio area.  The right candidate must have sold  chemicals to manufacturing situations in anything that is considered a consumable and sold on a repeat basis;  chemical raw materials, cleaners, MRO’s, lubricants, specialty chemicals, janitorial supplies or gases.  This relationship sale is predicated on value added problem solving behavior where you service the customers and meet the needs of the manufacturing situation.  This person will visit the customers regularly and provide a type of technical service or have the Engineering staff follow up with answers to technical changes in their processes.  They will call on metal fabricators, forging, stamping operations where they use a variety of specialty lubricants. 60% account maintenance and 40% new business development.
