Talan Names Woodie Anderson To Sales Team
Cleveland, OH – Talan Products is pleased to announce the addition of Woodie Anderson to its sales team.
Anderson is a decades-long veteran of the metal stamping industry, spending the last 24 years as owner and president of Multiple Products Co. in Cleveland. As president of Multiple Products, Anderson developed longstanding professional relationships with members of the Talan team – in particular, CEO Steve Peplin.
“I’ve known Steve for 20 years,” Anderson said. “Our companies complemented each other very well. Multiple Products specialized in smaller parts, and Talan has the bigger presses that allow it to produce larger parts.”
After nearly a quarter century running operations at Multiple Products, Anderson was ready for a new opportunity. Upon finalizing the sale of Multiple Products in January, Talan was the first place Anderson considered as he looked to begin the next chapter of his career. As a supplier to Talan, Anderson had designed and built numerous high-speed factory automations, making him a perfect fit for Talan’s Early Supplier Involvement and Design for Manufacturability teams.
“I really like Talan’s management style,” Anderson said. “They’ve been a high-growth company for many years, and they were interested in bringing on more capabilities as they continued to grow. I wanted to be a part of that. I felt that, with my combination of sales, marketing and engineering experience, I could add a great deal to the team here.”
In addition to his “day job,” Anderson is also a professional actor, with numerous local commercials to his credit, and a licensed pilot.
“In hiring Woodie, we really feel like we’ve made an all-star signing for our team,” Peplin said. “His areas of experience are so diverse and so extensive, he can impact our company in many different ways. He is definitely the kind of person we want to grow with.”
