MagneGas Doubles San Diego Sales Force
TAMPA, FL–(Marketwired – February 15, 2018) – MagneGas Corporation (“MagneGas” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ: MNGA), a leading clean technology company in the renewable resources and environmental solutions industries, today provided an operational update on Complete Welding of San Diego, the industrial gas and welding supply distributor MagneGas acquired in January of this year. Since closing the acquisition, the MagneGas executive team has completed its initial restructuring of the San Diego operations and has doubled the sales team to take full advantage of growth opportunities in the local market. The MagneGas team has also launched a comprehensive integration and product training program to better equip the expanded sales force on the full benefits of MagneGas2®, the only known renewable cutting fuel on the market.
“We were very fortunate to acquire a deep team of highly skilled industry experts in our recent Sand Diego acquisition,” commented Ermanno Santilli, CEO of MagneGas. “As we completed our initial restructuring, we found that several members of the support team had excellent sales and customer service skill sets and could be repositioned to a revenue generating role within the organization. As a result, we expect this business to generate record revenue in 2018.”
“We are pleased with the initial findings from our integration process,” commented Scott Mahoney, CFO of MagneGas. “We have a great team in San Diego, and they are all eager to help maximize the opportunity. We have also found ways to quickly improve margins as we benefit from economies of scale and eliminate redundant or unnecessary expenses. As a result, we are expecting the San Diego operations alone will contribute over $750,000 in sales in 2018, which would represent a record year relative to Complete Welding’s historical business.”
