Chicago Pneumatic this week named Gus Armbruster to manage its full range of handheld construction tools, and appointed Greg Petherbridge product line manager for the full range of compaction equipment. These new responsibilities are in addition to his current role of hydraulic breaker product manager.

In his new role as product manager, Armbruster will be a key player in product development and marketing of the handheld construction tools, including breakers, hammers, drills, rivet busters, and many other products and accessories.

“Gus has shown a wealth of enthusiasm and knowledge of his newly acquired product line,” said John Vogel, executive vice president. “Additionally, he has already shown a lot of dedication to CP by participating in this year’s trade show circuit.”

Petherbridge, an instrumental part of the Chicago Pneumatic Construction Equipment team, helped grow the hydraulic breaker line across North America. “In addition to being a real team player, Greg knows the equipment first hand,” said Vogel. “We are confident that Greg will do very well handling this additional assignment.”

Petherbridge has more than 30 years experience in the construction equipment industry.
