Fluid-Aire Dynamics Welcomes New Sales Director
Fluid-Aire Dynamics, a leader in the compressed air industry, is pleased to welcome a new sales powerhouse to their team. Jeremy Gaitsch has been named National Sales Director. In this newly created role, he will lead a team of Sales Engineers and Business Development specialists and oversee the company’s growth strategy in their primary markets of Chicago, Milwaukee, Minneapolis, and now Detroit.
Fluid-Aire Dynamics specializes in design, sales, installation, maintenance, repair and parts for rotary screw air compressors, serving manufacturers and other industrial compressed air users in their core markets. Named to the Inc. 5000 Fastest Growing Companies for four years in a row, the company is currently opening a new service facility near Detroit in Wixom, Michigan. They are also moving forward with growth in other parts of the Midwest. The new role of National Sales Director was created to help them meet their growth targets and expand into new market areas. Kevin Taylor, co-owner and Director of Fluid-Aire Dynamics, says, “We’re excited to welcome an industry veteran and proven sales performer to our team. With Jeremy’s leadership and experience, Fluid-Aire Dynamics is poised for another year of 30% growth.”
Gaitsch has been in the compressed air industry since discharging from the Marines in 2004. Starting at a local distributor Cochrane Compressor of Chicago, he began his career as a service technician before moving into inside sales, then outside sales and eventually managing the business. After leaving Cochrane, he worked in a holdings company, managing industrial sales and e-commerce in North America. He identified companies for joint ventures and worked on acquisitions overseas. This experience enabled him to understand retail markets and vertical integration through four company-owned factories. Most recently, he was with Atlas Copco, where he led the specialty rental operation and managed sales and operations for a seven-state region.
Gaitsch says, “There are not many jobs in this field I haven’t done; I enjoyed learning the different facets of the industry very much. Closing a deal and watching a team grow are where my work passions lie.”
Kevin Taylor and co-owners (and brothers) Brad and Derrick Taylor are pleased to welcome Gaitsch into a prominent role in the business, which has been owned and managed by the Taylor family since 1983. Brad Taylor, the Sales Engineering Manager, says, “Our growth over the last decades has been driven by our commitment to our customers and service excellence. Jeremy is the right person to help lead our next phase of growth as we expand into new markets and continue to build on our past successes.”
