Rubber and vinyl commercial flooring manufacturer Flexco has appointed Alan Tate as sales manager for the company's newly created Southwest territory, which spans Colorado, Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska, northern Texas, and Oklahoma.

Based in Oklahoma City, Tate will be responsible for developing Flexco sales through the new distribution area.

"Flexco recently has experienced a large increase in sales in the Southwest territory," said John Truitt, Flexco's director of Sales. "It's important to leverage our presence in that region and we are confident Alan will do a great job increasing our sales and developing a strong market presence for Flexco."

Tate's background includes experience in the flooring distribution industry. Most recently, he was responsible for Oklahoma City and Tulsa, Okla., sales at C & F Distributors, a Flexco commercial flooring products distributor in Oklahoma markets.
