He will work closely with Tubelite's sales team and regional sales managers to provide clients with storefront, curtainwall, entrance and daylight control systems.
More than 15 years ago, Ragsdale began working in north Georgia as a glazier in the field with his father. He moved from installation into management and sales, including positions with Shaw Industries Group, Inc., in north Georgia, and Ross Glass & Aluminum LLC of Chattanooga, Tenn.
For the last seven years, Ragsdale worked as a sales representative for Oldcastle BuildingEnvelope serving Florida, Alabama and Georgia. Transitioning his knowledge and relationships to Tubelite, he says that he was attracted to the company's longevity and strong reputation: "I understand that their customer service is amazing, their lead times are good and consistent and I'm excited about the direction they're going. They're doing everything right with their growth and the effort they put into their product development."
Tubelite's ForceFront™ Blast and ForceFront Storm products are the newest additions. Important to Ragsdale's clients, ForceFront Storm received Florida Product Approval (#14563). In addition to impact protection, Tubelite's ForceFront products support facilities' environmental goals.
