Ty Acton Named Tingue President
Ty Acton recently was promoted from vice president of sales to president of Tingue by CEO David Tingue, according to a news release.
Acton will oversee implementation of the company’s overall strategic direction, the release said. That includes driving its sales strategy and leading the fourth-generation family-owned company founded in 1902 to growth in markets including the U.S., Canada, Asia and Latin America.
Acton will take on responsibilities previously held by David Tingue. Acton plans to continue growing and exporting the Tingue brand and its products and services, while remaining committed to both customer and employee satisfaction and retention, the release said. Acton joined Tingue in 1983 as a field sales representative and advanced through the ranks to serve as regional sales manager, national sales manager and vice president of sales before being named president.
“Ty understands that building long-term relationships with our customers and our employees will continue to drive our company forward, regardless of changes in the day-to-day marketplace,” Tingue said. “It’s personally gratifying for me to see Ty and his team excel year after year, and I’m confident he’ll continue to raise the bar for excellence in his new role.”
Acton said when he joined Tingue, he was struck by the spirit of solidarity he saw among laundry operators and their suppliers. “People seemed to genuinely appreciate working with each other, and I wanted to bring that same level of trust, teamwork and camaraderie that I experienced among customers, colleagues and vendors to my territory, and later to the whole sales team. Our growth is based on a shared commitment to customer service and mutual support.”
Tingue provides supplies for flatwork ironers, feeders and folders; rebuilt ironers; laundry carts; rigging and repair services, and replacement parts and accessories for all laundry equipment makes and models. Its field staff help laundries meet quality and production standards as safely and efficiently as possible. For more information, go to www.tingue.com.
