Bill Stramer and Melvin Porter have been elected to the Link-Belt Construction Equipment Company's board of directors in the USA.
Stramer is vice president, marketing, sales and customer support and Porter is vice president of finance, and chief financial officer. The move came after a meeting at Sumitomo Heavy Industry (SHI) headquarters in Tokyo, Japan, in February. Link-Belt is a wholly owned subsidiary of SHI.
"This is an outstanding personal and professional accomplishment for both of these gentlemen," said Chuck Martz, Link-Belt chairman, CEO and president. "It's an honor they have earned through dedicated leadership and support of our efforts at Link-Belt.
"This is also a significant show of support by Link-Belt's parent company, SHI, of what Link-Belt has accomplished and will continue to accomplish under their leadership," Martz continued.
