Sipcam Agro USA Expands Turf And Ornamental Group

Sipcam Agro USA, Inc. has recently added two new sales managers. The company hired George W. Furrer to manage the Northeast and John E. Laake for the Midwest. Both have long careers in the green industry and each has served as president of the Ohio Turfgrass Foundation.

According to Bob Yarborough, who directs turf and ornamental product development, sales and marketing for Sipcam Agro, the addition of Furrer and Laake comes at an important time for the company.

“We recently received EPA registration for a new preemergence herbicide and have begun marketing an additional fungicide, plus we have more products in the pipeline,” Yarborough said. “The addition of two sales managers allows us to better promote these latest offerings and also boost the marketing of our existing products. We look forward to spending more time with our distributors and their customers.”

Prior to joining Sipcam Agro, Furrer worked as a sales representative for LESCO, Inc. and Terra Industries in the Columbus, Ohio, market. He will continue to be based in central Ohio and work with Sipcam Agro distributors throughout the Northeast.

Laake comes to Sipcam Agro with more than 25 years of experience as a certified golf course superintendent as well as sales experience with Advanced Turf Solutions, an Indianapolis-based distributor. He will service the Midwest from his office in Cincinnati.
