Employee Spotlight: Carl Reimers

Carl Reimers

Carl Reimers has been a member of McGill Hose’s sales team for almost 29 years. Before joining us, he studied mechanical engineering and accounting in college and also worked as a machinist, auto mechanic and automotive parts/equipment salesman. Carl says that his primary goal as a salesman for McGill Hose is “to make my customers more successful by showing them how to increase their productivity and reduce their cost of doing business.”

In order to do this, Carl researches what a potential customer produces (either a product or a service) and gains an understanding of the basic processes that the customer uses. He then decides which McGill products can provide both immediate and long-term positive results to this customer. Carl explains, “After 28 years of selling hose and hose fittings, I have found that some customers have accepted poor product performance under the excuse of ‘We have always done it that way.’ My goals are realized when I can show them a better way.”

Carl and his wife, Kathy, have been married for 29 years and have two grown children. His hobbies include hunting and motorcycle riding.
