CHARLOTTE, N.C. (February 6, 2019) – Diamond tool manufacturer Diamut, which became part of Biesse Group in 2002, has announced the appointment of Ronnie Benton as Southeast Area Product Manager serving the states of Georgia, Alabama, South Carolina and Florida.
After more than 30 years of advising and collaborating with customers who work with stone, Benton is bringing his talents, experience and stone industry expertise to a company dedicated to serving its North American customers closer to home. The news that Benton has joined the Diamut team comes after the company announced a $3 million expansion at the Biesse Group Campus in Charlotte, starting with the new tool redressing facility that began operation last fall. He will be responsible for developing sales strategies, working with distributors, and assisting with direct sales, sharing his expertise in finding and selling tools.
“We are very excited to have Ronnie on our Diamut team. His sales experience in the stone industry will help us better serve our end-users and distributors,” said Peter Hauser, VP of Sales Diamut America Stone Division. “We are looking forward to continuing to grow our business with Ronnie and our new redressing and manufacturing facility here in Charlotte. Our ultimate goal for 2019 is to help more companies get the best ROI on their tooling and increase their production while maintaining the highest quality in their operations.”
