PIQUA, Ohio (March 15, 2011)—French Oil Mill Machinery Co. has created a new sales structure for its hydraulic press groups.
The groups now are TMP Inc., a division of French; and French Oil Mill Machinery Co. The change of TMP's name was made to clarify its ownership structure, the company said.
The Piqua-based firm said the reorganization simplifies how the companies take their products to market, moving from brand-specific sales teams to consolidated sales responsibilities within clearly segmented markets.
“Since acquiring TMP in 2009, we have been able to better analyze our customers needs throughout the various markets we serve,” said Daniel P. French, chairman and president of French Oil Mill Machinery. “Launching this new sales structure is an important step in allowing our sales and engineering teams to focus on the specialized needs of our customers so we can best serve them.”
In the new structure, French adds TMP lamination presses to its product line and will continue to market French hydraulic presses to the compaction and friction markets. TMP will focus its sales efforts on its line of intensive mixers and hydraulic presses for the composite and laboratory markets.
Both French and TMP will sell to the rubber markets with French dedicating sales efforts to its existing customers while TMP serves existing and new customers.
