Gasco Affiliates, LLC, a leading global producer of precision calibration gas, has appointed Kevin Wilson as national sales manager to direct sales efforts supporting Gasco’s impending new product introductions for the specialty gas market.

A 23-year veteran of the specialty gas and instrumentation industry with more than 30 years of sales experience, Wilson is responsible for developing and executing sales and launch strategies for Gasco’s new product initiatives. He will focus on raising awareness of Gasco’s commitment to delivering high-quality, innovative products and exceptional customer service among new and existing customers.

Gasco president Tom Hanway said Wilson will play a key role in ensuring the company achieves multiple successful new product launches through the addition of new distributors and by fostering an increased dedication to Gasco products from its existing national distributor network. “Gasco changed the industry’s view of “standard” with the recent introduction of the 44, an innovative new cylinder that holds 44 liters of gas in a standard 34-liter cylinder,” says Hanway, “We are confident Kevin will build on the momentum of that product launch to ensure continued success as we introduce more new product innovations to the industry this year.”

Wilson most recently served as the central region sales director for American Reliance Inc., developing distribution relationships within the law enforcement, homeland security and emergency services industries for rugged portable computer products. Prior to that, Wilson spent years as a national sales manager working with analytical instrumentation and gas standards primarily in the health and safety industry. He was directly responsible for establishing and managing a North American distributor network in the calibration gas industry.

Wilson studied marketing, sales and time management at Texas Christian University and is a Certified Indoor Air Quality Technician through Texas Tech University.
