Brad Burel is now Advance’s Vice President of Sales. He was previously Director of National Sales for several years. In his new position Brad will be leading an initiative to unify the company’s sales and account management team members into a new single unified sales team. Brad started with Advance Components in 2000, departing the company in good standing after 3 years to move to North Carolina to be closer to his family. But as they say, “once you are in the fastener business for three years, you are in it forever.” So, Brad came back to work with Advance in 2007 where he worked in Account Management. He transitioned to the role Regional Sales Manager before being promoted to Director of National Sales. Congratulations Brad!
Advance partners with ARaymond to ship over 7 million Palnut® Push Nuts to be used in COVID-19 testing kits. As a Master Distributor of ARaymond/Tinnerman products, we were able to work together to expedite the parts to the testing kit manufacturer in record time. We are proud of our partnership with ARaymond and of our commitment to make a difference during this difficult time.
Advance Components is deemed an essential, critical infrastructure supply chain partner under all state and federal standards. All our operations will remain open and observe all recommended CDC guidelines at our facility. We are continuing to ship to our customers who are supplying, producing or distributing medical products, as well as those critical infrastructure sectors as defined by the Department of Homeland Security such as communications, critical manufacturing, energy, food and agriculture, information technology, transportation systems and water/wastewater systems. Please read our official statement here.
As part of the supply chain to the essential critical infrastructure workers, we are continuing to receive, stock and ship products needed for a variety of products used in critical manufacturing. Our sales and distribution teams are taking careful measures to ensure our products are handled in accordance to CDC guidelines. Currently our Dallas headquarters is running with a crew of 10 or less people, with a full crew devoted to warehouse and shipping operations. Our sales team is fully operational and able to receive, quote and process all orders.
In these uncertain time, maintaining a steady supply chain is more important than ever. We’re here to answer your questions. Please let us know what we can do to help you resolve any potential disruptions you foresee occurring to your operations.
