Hickory, North Carolina-based Shurtape Technologies, LLC, an industry-leading producer of pressure-sensitive tapes, has expanded its sales force serving the Industrial/Construction and Electrical (ICE) Channel with the addition of Mike Czaja as National Sales Manager and promotion of Eric Stone to Vice President of Sales.

Rounding out the support of the channel are two recent new hires: National Sales Manager John Erwin, who will focus on ICE sales efforts for the Eastern half of the United States, and Senior National Account Manager Nick Baloun, who will continue to manage a variety of national accounts within the channel.

“Our ongoing expansion in the ICE channel allows us to continue to meet the market demands for high-quality, innovation tape solutions to get the job done,” said Rob DeVries, Senior Vice President of Sales, Shurtape.
