Valtronics Sales add Nick Sylvester and Rich Oberst as Sales Engineers to better serve customers throughout the Marcellus Shale Regions of Appalachia.

Valtronics Sales continues to invest in high growth areas throughout Pennsylvania, West Virginia, and Ohio from its regional office in Canonsburg, Pennsylvania.

Ravenswood, WV – July 23, 2019 – Valtronics Sales, a manufacturers’ representative and stocking distributor announces Nick Sylvester and Richard Oberst as Sales Engineers. This addition to the sales team better positions Valtronics Sales for the continued growth of pipelines, plants, and infrastructure necessary to support shale gas production and subsequent product transportation from Pennsylvania, West Virginia and Ohio to market.

Valtronics Sales’ growth initiative developed first with the acquisition of C&W Sales, a well-established Dezurik representative business covering both municipal and industrial product lines, during the second quarter of 2018. This acquisition allowed Valtronics Sales to increase its territory coverage within the Water, Natural Gas and Natural Gas Liquids marketspace throughout the Marcellus Shale Region.  Valtronics Sales opened a new office in Canonsburg, Pennsylvania last year and has added additional staff including Nick Sylvester and Rich Oberst focusing on water, oil, and natural gas.

Ken Thompson, President of Valtronics and Mustang Sampling commented, “Valtronics Sales has seen a lot of change over the past 12 months with the acquisition of C&W Sales, the new office in Canonsburg, the addition of two new product lines, FLEXIM and FLUENTA, as well as an increase in head count. I believe Nick and Rich are the right Sales Engineers to penetrate our key markets and applications within the Appalachian region. We believe this will allow us to gain market share with additional customers and opportunities.”

Nick is a recent graduate of Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio with a Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering and a minor in Biomedical Engineering – Biomechanics.  He began his career as an intern with Westinghouse Electric Company and spent over 2 years with ECI (Equipment and Controls, Inc.) as an Application Engineer and Outside Sales Engineer.


Rich brings with him over 15 years of experience as a Sales Engineer for several different industries including Oil & Gas, Power, Water and Wastewater, Mining, Chemical and HVAC from MS Jacobs & Associates Inc. and Infinity Industrial Controls.  Rich has a Bachelor of Science in Health Services Administration from Slippery Rock University in Pennsylvania.
