Phoenix, AZ – (WiredPRNews) Valutek, an industry-leading manufacturer of cleanroom supplies, proudly announces the addition of Travis Watkins to its team as Distributor Account Executive.
Watkins has more than 25 years experience in the cleanroom industry. First working in semiconductor chemical and materials for 10 years after graduate school, he moved into sales and engineering before starting his own company, Advanced Process Solutions (APS) in 1990. He built APS up to a 225-employee, $8M-a-year company before selling it in 2000.
Watkins then consulted within the cleanroom and other industries before teaming up once again with Valutek CEO Greg Heiland. The two worked together in the past when Heiland’s previous company, Sierra Scientific, distributed supplies from APS. Now, the two are working together once again to provide some of the best cleanroom supplies to the industry.
“I have known Greg for 15 years,” Watkins explains. “And I know he is a firm believer in quality of product – and that’s what Valutek delivers.”
“We are very honored to have Travis on our team,” Heiland adds. “He is incredibly valuable to the cleanroom industry, and we are excited to work with him.”
Watkins holds certifications as a Chemical Process Engineer as well as a Contamination Control Engineer. He is a graduate of Point Loma University. He is based in the Southwest and is an avid surfer – chasing big waves from Fiji to Hawaii to Nicaragua. He’s also a passionate music man, a singer who has entertained professionally. When he’s not surfing, singing or selling cleanroom supplies, he spends time with his three daughters and two grandchildren. He can reached at 602-503-1333.
