E. J. Welch Company
The development of a close partnership proved to be a key factor in the company’s high level of sales in 2020. “EJ Welch/T4F and Wagner Meters have been partners for many years,” explained Jason Spangler, Sales Manager for Wagner Meters. “Their desire for continued fostering of the distributor and manufacturer relationship makes for a successful partnership for both of us. We look forward to great things in 2021.”
This successful, long-term partnership has been driven in large part by a strong customer commitment on the part of both companies. “Wagner Meters has been instrumental in helping our customers and the entire flooring industry understand the importance of moisture testing,” commented Nick Jannett, Category Manager of Installation Products. “Wagner Meters provides innovative, user-friendly products, and we have the utmost confidence in their ability to manufacture products that our customers will love.”
“We’re honored to receive this distinction,” added CEO Mitch Jolley, “and look forward to many years of continued growth and success in our partnership with Wagner Meters.”

Kevmor Trade Supplies
A big factor in Kevmor’s remarkable success as an overseas Wagner Meters distributor has to do with shared company values. “The people, dedication, and enthusiasm for an industry are what separate Kevmor from many in the business,” emphasized Jason Spangler. “It’s not just about making money; it’s about making a difference. This is one of the reasons Wagner and Kevmor have created such a strong partnership in the Australian market; we have many common business philosophies.”
The Kevmor team acknowledged: “Kevmor is thrilled to receive the Top International Distributor Award from Wagner Meters. We are privileged to be distributing Wagner, a respected world leader in concrete and wood moisture meters that are a quality product and meet the current Australian standards for moisture testing.”

We look forward to a long-lasting partnership.”
