New Philadelphia, Ohio-based Vacall last week named Edgar Chavez vice president of its product group, which offers a variety of high-performance sewer cleaning equipment, straight jetting trucks, hydro-excavators and industrial vacuum loaders.
Chavez will manage Vacall’s sales and marketing efforts, including dealer development, distribution network, product development and engineering. Chavez reports directly to Mike Haberman, president of Gradall Industries.
Chavez joins Vacall from Case New Holland, where he served since 2006 as global product development platform-marketing manager, director of key national and government accounts and, most recently, North American marketing director for New Holland Construction and Kobelco America.
With more than 20 years of industry experience, Chavez’s career also includes positions with Astec Industries, Mitsubishi International and Volvo Construction Equipment.
“Edgar’s strong roots within the industry, proven track record and national as well as global experience bring valuable assets to the Vacall product group and Gradall Industries,” Haberman said.
First introduced more than 50 years ago, Vacall brand products are owned by the Alamo Group. Vacall machines are designed, built and supported by Gradall Industries. For more information about Vacall, visit www.vacallindustries.com.
