Springwall names new production manager and adds new Nova Scotia rep
MISSISSAUGA, Ontario (12 July 2010) - Mattress specialist Springwall Sleep Products has promoted Al Ishmael to production manager and has named Stephanie Atkinson as its new sales representative for Nova Scotia.
"Although this will be a challenging position with an increased role and responsibility we are very confident in Al's capabilities and knowledge of this industry that he will do very well," plant manager Brett Ledingham said.
Ishmael joined Springwall in 1996. Prior to that, he worked for the now defunct Perma Foam.
In a related announcement, the company said Sheldon Coates has been named shipping and receiving supervisor at its main plant here. He brings more than 20 years of experience - including a similar role at the Simmons Canada plant in Brampton, Ontario - to his new position.
Both Ishmael and Coates will report to Ledingham.
"Stephanie brings a wealth of knowledge from a very successful background in retail sales over the past 15 years to her new position," sales manager Steve Amis said in a statement.
