RICHMOND, Va. - Tencarva Machinery Co. consolidated three divisions into a new 12,000-square-foot office-warehouse building in Oak Lake Industrial Park, Midlothian, Va. Ten employees from the former Tencarva Richmond office are now housed together with the six employees in the Engineering Equipment Division and one in the Tencarva Municipal Division, formerly the Emory-Wilson Municipal Division.

In addition to Wayne Tatum, vice president of sales for Virginia and Maryland, leadership in the three divisions includes Steve Newsome as the Tencarva Division branch manager, Dave Mathers as the Engineering Equipment Division manager, and Tom Thomas as the Municipal Division sales engineer, handling central and eastern Virginia.

“We are very pleased to get all of our Richmond area team in one location. They have done a good job in coordinating their activities to date, and I’m sure that the more frequent contact and easier communications will enhance the teamwork,” said Rod Lee, president of Tencarva Machinery Co. “The new site is also more convenient for most of our people, and the modern service and shop facilities should enhance our customer service capabilities in Richmond.”

According to Tatum, constructing a facility designed specifically for Tencarva has its advantages. “We were able to lay out the offices in a design suited to our workflow, plan a work area for handling small equipment package assembly, and develop a pump shop customized for pump repairs,” he said. “Our new training/conference room allows us to have seminars or training sessions for up to 20 people. … We are sharing knowledge and making joint calls with each other. This cross-pollination enables us to mix equipment on a job and bid jointly as appropriate.”
