Jason Spangler

Jason Spangler is the Flooring Sales Manager for Wagner Meters. He has his MBA from West Texas A&M University and has over 25 years of experience working with products in the construction, roofing and concrete flooring industries.

It’s no secret that Jason loves his job and his customers as well. He’s seen how disastrous flooring failures can be, and he wants to make sure people can avoid them at all costs. So it’s rare to find him when he isn’t on the phone with his customers or on his way to meet them.

As an advocate for the precision and effectiveness of RH testing, you can find him in hundreds of Wagner’s Rapid RH® and Orion® product demonstration videos. He enjoys providing hands-on, detailed how-tos for each of the products he personally recommends. It’s a way to share his passion for a testing method he has observed to be the best option out there. His interest and love for marketing and educating are definitely evident, and he enjoys delving into opinions, ideas, and strategies with the Wagner team.

Throughout his time at Wagner Meters, Jason has successfully launched a variety of products to the market, including the original Rapid RH concrete moisture test. He is also part of the Executive Board as the Secretary/Treasurer for the Flooring Contractors Association (FCICA).

When he’s not at work, Jason enjoys the outdoors and travel, of which his favorite destination so far is Dubai. He also stays busy with his active, adventurous family. He recently finished rebuilding a Ducati motorcycle and has a general affinity for motorsports, which he shares with his daughters. He has done an excellent job teaching them about the functionality of the gas pedal but has failed miserably at teaching them the value of the brake pedal.
