NEW ALBANY, Miss. - Master-Bilt, a manufacturer of commercial refrigeration systems, has appointed Rooker Marketing Solutions as its manufacturers' representative for the Mississippi, Arkansas, and Louisiana territories.

Don Rooker, who heads Rooker Marketing Solutions, formerly was a 32-year veteran of Master-Bilt, where he was a business development manager. Rooker now is bringing his expertise to his new venture. Currently in its first year of operation, Rooker Marketing Solutions will concentrate on restaurant equipment.

"Master-Bilt truly helped me get my new business off the ground by supplying me a product line to sell," said Rooker. "My previous experiences with Master-Bilt were invaluable, as they were a great company to work for, and are now proving to be a great company to work with."

"We're excited for Don and his decision to start on his own, as we knew this was one of his many goals," said Bill Huffman, vice president of sales and marketing at Master-Bilt. "We only hope he is as successful on his own as he was with Master-Bilt."

Master-Bilt's specialty markets include supermarkets, restaurants, convenience stores, dairies, warehousing, and drug stores. For more information, call Mary Lowstuter at 800-647-1284, ext. 203, or e-mail her at
