Bob Lalonde, based in Montreal, Quebec has been appointed as Regional Sales Manager for Quebec and Eastern Canada, while Joe Ruggiero, based in Philadelphia, PA has been appointed to Technical Sales and Service.

Fenzi s.P.a, based in Italy, provides chemicals for the glass processing industry, with the Toronto facility focusing on the IG components side of the business. Fenzi North America manufacturer’s polysulfide at its Toronto facility, while distributing a complete line of other sealants and components used for day to day IG production.

Fenzi GM David Devenish adds “With Bob’s extensive background in IG sealants, his knowledge and support to all his customers will prove invaluable as we move forward with our expansion plans. The recent opening of our new warehouse in LaSalle, Quebec is the first step under Bob’s direction. Bob’s experience in the sealant industry and his dedication to servicing his customers sealant needs, is exactly the philosophy that we want to bring to all of our customers”. Lalonde was recently with Bostik Canada for over 20 years, covering the Canadian market with mainly polyurethane and hot melt sealants.

Devenish goes on “Adding a respected and proven winner like Bob solidifies our position in Canada as a leading supplier to the insulated glass business, as we continue to service our existing customers and grow our core business products”.

“The opportunity to bring Joe to our team for additional support in the US was something all on our management team agreed upon immediately. Joe’s extensive knowledge on two-component pumping equipment and the solid customer base he grew as a Bostik Technician over 30 years, fills a void in Fenzi’s Northeast market. Since joining Fenzi, we have seen the loyalty that his customers show towards him as Joe is working with all to provide sealant solutions thru this transition period in market. In my opinion, adding Joe to our Sales & Technical Service team makes Fenzi a leading provider of sealant solutions”.

Joe ads” the timing was right for me to join such a progressive company like Fenzi and be able to continue my business relationship with my current customer base. The additional components and products that Fenzi offers for IG fabricators certainly makes it challenging and interesting.”
