Since making operational upgrades to its plants, Preverco has seen its business increase, and has hired three new Canadian representatives.

“British Columbia, Alberta/Saskatchewan and the Greater Toronto Area are all large and growing markets," said Etienne Chabot, vice president, marketing for Preverco. “With the demand for Preverco products rising steadily, adding representatives to these three geographic regions makes good business sense.”

William Dove has more than 25 years of experience in the sales and distribution of hardwood floors as well as in sales management. According to the company, his extensive network of contacts will complement that of Derek Smithdorf, Preverco’s current representative in British Columbia.

Ryan Smithdorf brings to Preverco experience in many facets of the floor covering industry in Alberta. According to the company, this experience, along with that of representative Art Vesterdal, will enable Preverco to strengthen the positioning of its products in these provinces.

Sebastian Lukasik has worked in the hardwood flooring industry for more than 18 years. Prior to joining Preverco, he was an account manager for a hardwood floor distributor, where he specialized in sales for major commercial projects.
