Aug. 22, 2014: TruTech Tools Announces Change in Ownership

Bill Spohn and Eric Preston Are the New Owners

AKRON, Ohio — TruTech Tools Ltd., an online distributor of tools and test instruments for the HVAC and building performance markets, has announced a change in ownership. James C. and James L. Bergmann have stepped down and current president and CEO, Bill Spohn, and vice president and sales manager, Eric Preston, are now the owners of the company.

James L. Bergmann commented, “I am proud to have had the opportunity to contribute to the growth of TruTech Tools. Our well-established reputation, loyal customer base, and committed employees are the true foundation of our success. Bill Spohn’s energy, enthusiasm, and connections to the market, coupled with Eric Preston’s expertise in sales, management, and customer service have helped put TruTech on the map and in the forefront of our customers’ minds.”

Joining the company as a partner and general manager in 2009, Spohn has channeled his experience in test instrument engineering and marketing into building TruTech’s product portfolio and marketing processes. Preston also came to TruTech in 2009 and has since helped in increasing its sales.

Spohn said, “Assuming majority ownership of TruTech is as tremendous an honor for me as it is a natural progression. Eric and I look forward to attracting new customers, expanding into new markets, and developing our services to better meet their needs as we streamline operations to keep the company flexible, reactive, and focused on the ever changing marketplace.”
