We are currently searching for a Factory Automation Account Representative for the SE Michigan to manage and grow an existing territory.

The successful candidate will be responsible for working with OEM design teams from concept to purchase to solve their factory automation projects.

Duties and responsibilities include:

  • developing new opportunities at existing and new accounts
  • becoming familiar with our principals’ products by attending factory training
  • facilitate technical issues between our principals and OEM’s to solve customer applications
  • document project details to track and forecast future business.

We are looking an individual with a technical Associate's or Bachelor’s degree that can develop relationships with our customer design teams. Two to five years’ experience with an automation manufacturer, distributor or OEM is a plus. This position requires someone that is self-motivated, can largely work by themselves and is interested in a high earnings potential. You will work out of your home office in the southeast Michigan area.

You will have to follow up on and provide quotes on current projects; travel to customer sites to discuss equipment requirements; work with engineering departments of products you rep as well as use some of your own knowledge. Will not have to do much true "engineering", they are more of the front-line sales & applications engineering support. Will have to work at trade shows and with product distributors. A lot of phone work but no true cold calling unless they want to do so. A lot of work through email and the Internet.

If you are a high performer and would like to work for an equally high performing company and you think the above opportunity is appropriate for you, we invite you to apply to this job and email your resume in Word format to
