Mark Hoefing, Executive Vice President, was pleased to announce the growth of his team, “We want to provide the best customer service on the market to match our best-in-class machines, and it became evident that we simply needed more manpower to achieve this. As our increased sales and marketing efforts focus on developing SLM’s market share, our operations received a large boost by nearly doubling the size of our service team. As all of these employees complete their training we are already seeing the many benefits of streamlined operations, an effect we hope our customers see as well.”
