Lundell Plastics adds to sales staff
ODEBOLT (Lundell) – Lundell Plastics Corporation of Odebolt announced on Feb. 19 the addition of Andy Mortensen to its sales force.
Although Mortensen actually joined the Lundell team in July, he has been working to learn the business from the ground up.
According to company president, Vance Lundell, this has been the most effective way to be fully versed in the company’s line of products.
“Right now, Andy is spending time in both sales and the manufacturing end of Lundell Plastics,” said Lundell. “For training purposes, we believe it is important for him to be as familiar as he can be with every aspect of our business. He is learning our processes, how products are made and how they are installed.
“He came to us already familiar with our products, but this gives him an even broader knowledge base to answer technical questions.”
Mortensen served in the Army National Guard from 1993 to 2005, and was deployed to Afghanistan during Operation Enduring Freedom Five. After returning from his deployment he worked several years on a large farming operation, and said that farming has been a part of his life for as long as he can remember.
Mortensen said he hated leaving farming, but this was just too good an opportunity to turn down.
“It’s pretty close to being a farmer, without actually being one,” said Mortensen. “I still get to be a part of agriculture, and I get to do what I love to do, and that is to make things more efficient for the farmer.
“I have been in the fields and I have seen what works best. I am not only able to help make the product recommendations, but also help with the implementation and follow up on the results. This really is the best of both worlds.”
Mortensen will be working directly with producers as well as organizing and attending trade shows, but he will also be an integral part of the day-to-day processes at Lundell Plastics.
