Whittemore expands Riten Industries relationship

The Whittemore Co. has expanded its partnership with Riten Industries to include the states of Kansas and Missouri.

Previously, Whittemore has represented the Riten Industries product line in nine Midwestern states.

Whittemore expanded to Kansas and Missouri at the start of 2018 with the addition of new sales and applications engineer, Brandon Crocker. 

“Riten Industries is very excited to add Brandon Crocker to The Whittemore Co.’s representation of Riten Industries’ line of work holding products and services," said Kent Hizer, Riten's Midwest region sales manager. "Crocker’s outstanding reputation precedes him and we are sure that he will help bolster an already great relationship between The Whittemore Co. and Riten Industries as he represents our products in Kansas and Missouri. Brandon’s vast experience in our industry will be a fantastic asset to our customer base.”

Riten Industries is a manufacturer of live and dead centers and face drivers and has been making products in central Ohio since 1933.

“Riten Industries is a highly valued and coveted partner of Whittemore. We truly enjoy representing Riten because they are a very focused and customer-centric principal. As an ISO company, Riten documents and follows specific internal processes to deliver the highest quality products and services to their end users. This dovetails nicely with our objective to bring only the highest quality products and services to the metalworking industrial customer. We appreciate the relationship we have with management and the entire Riten team, and are honored that Whittemore has been selected to expand our coverage area to include Kansas and Missouri,” said Dave Zaval, president of The Whittemore Co.
