Jergens announces that Omar Andino will take the lead as the WSG National Sales Manager.

Andino, who has been with the company since October of 2018, will leverage his wide range of manufacturing and engineering experience in his new position to continue the sales growth of the many workholding products.

“Omar has been a valuable member of the Jergens team for five years now”, said Matt Schron, Jergens Vice President, and General Manager.  “His demeanor is very approachable and conversational, with application and fixture design background that gives us another advantage as he and his team continue to support our customers, distributors and sales rep’s”, continued Schron.

Previously, Andino had been on the Jergens Custom Design and Build team, and an Application Engineer. Prior to joining Jergens, he had been in the plastic injection molding industry, in material handling, a tool maker, designer, and shift supervisor for companies including Meritec and Cosmo Corp. He has spent his career in and around tooling, process improvement, automation, and workholding, all with an eye for improving efficiency.

“I’m a learn as you go kind of guy, and I really enjoy understanding how things work”, said Andino. “Jergens has given me the opportunity to take on as much as I want, which is how I built up my AE (Application Engineer) skills and took on my first solo custom design and build project after 2-1/2 months”, he continued.

That same sense of design and construction is also part of Andino’s private life as he enjoys wrenching on motorcycles and cars, as well as household renovations and woodworking. He holds an Engineering Technical Certificate from Lakeland Community College.
