Markus Steinbrecher, former president of Global Tiling Inc., joined Argelith on May 1. He is managing a sales territory in the western U.S.

Over the last 18 months, Argelith has doubled the size of its North American sales force. President Christian Nierenkoether said Steinbrecher's industry background makes him a valuable addition.

“Markus is very knowledgeable," Nierenkoether said. “He is very familiar with our tiles and their technical specifications, so he can really hit the ground running.” 

Steinbrecher ran Global Tiling for 10 years before his retirement last year. The company installs Argelith and other industrial flooring systems all over the U.S.

“I am very excited to be a part of the Argelith team,” Steinbrecher said. “The commercial flooring industry is at an interesting place. Companies are looking for sustainable, long-term solutions. I look forward to teaching people about the value Argelith brings.”
