Hydromat Inc. Appoints Scott Gilbert As Regional Sales Manager For Northern Region

St. Louis, MO – Hydromat Inc. has named Scott A. Gilbert to the position of Regional Sales Manager for the North territory that includes Wisconsin, Minnesota, North and South Dakota, Iowa, Nebraska, Upper Michigan, Northern Indiana, and Northern Illinois. His area of responsibility will be to develop new markets and sales opportunities as well as service existing Hydromat customers. Gilbert will live and work out of the territory to better serve that area.

“I am very excited to have Scott on board to lead our sales efforts in that region,” says Mathias Walter, Chief Sales Officer, Hydromat Inc. “He has a wealth of sales experience in machine tools and also has the experience in contract machining that will help him to relate to our customers,” Walter concluded.

Walter, who came on board with Hydromat this past January, has recently added the North Territory and expanded the Sales Staff to better serve the entire North American Marketplace. “By reducing the area each Sales Representative needs to cover,” he explains, “we can better service for our clients as well as our Agents.”

Gilbert is a seasoned veteran in the machine tool and contract machining industries dating back nearly three decades. He attended the State University of New York, earning a Bachelor of Science degree after he first earned an Associate Degree in Business Administration.

Gilbert started his career as a New York State Certified Journeyman Tool & Die Maker. He progressed to a vice president and owner of a tool & die company before moving into the machine tool distribution business in the mid-1990’s as a Product Sales Manager at Macaulay Machinery. Later Gilbert would spend nine years with Makino serving as both Regional Sales Manager and Direct Sales Manager in a Wisconsin Satellite Office and their U.S. Headquarters in Cincinnati, Ohio.

Later, as Vice President of Sales for Dynamic International in Pewaukee, Wisconsin, Gilbert managed distributors while maintaining direct sales accounts and increased the firm’s sales significantly. His experience in contract manufacturing came while he served as Contract Sales Manager with Diamond Precision Products in Johnson Creek, Wisconsin, a manufacturer of products such as flywheels, pulleys, and coupling nuts.
Gilbert moved back into the machine tool industry in 2009 when he accepted a sales position with Concept Machine Tool in Delafield, Wisconsin.

“Scott will be fully involved in developing new opportunities and markets for us in that region,” remarked Rodger Boswell, Director of Sales. “His many years of experience in this territory, and the fact that he knows so many people there, give him the tools to go right to work.”
