Calpacific Equipment Co. Recognized For Entering Year 29 of MANA Membership

The Calpacific Equipment Company, based in Richmond, CA, has been recognized by the Manufacturers’ Agents National Association (MANA) for 29 years of continuous membership in the prestigious industry organization. The announcement was an occasion for both the company and the association to reflect on almost three decades of a successful and profitable partnership.

For more than 60 years, Calpacific Equipment Company has been a widely-known representative for some of the most prominent and industry-leading manufacturers of facility maintenance and energy management products, including steam and hot water, hydronic, HVAC, heat exchange, and process control equipment. They recently expanded their product line to include hot water boilers, water booster pumps, water control valves, and rain and grey water harvesting systems.

MANA is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to facilitating and enhancing the relationship between manufacturers and their representatives. They are especially focused on increasing the effectiveness and profitability of the principal/representative marketing partnership by providing continuous educational resources, publishing the popular Agency Sales magazine and supporting the Manufacturers’ Representative Educational Research Foundation (MRERF). They also provide a world-wide database of manufacturers and reps, helping representative members get new lines.

Calpacific President and CEO Dennis Welsch, commenting on the company’s recognition by MANA for their long-standing professional relationship, said, “We are proud of our affiliation with MANA, and for 29 years it’s been one of our most valuable business partnerships. Our membership in MANA has given us the resources we need to accomplish our goal of continuous improvement and excellent service to our customers. We look forward to many more years of working with the association.”

Charles M. Cohon, CEO and President of MANA, noted, “Our representative members are proud of what they’ve accomplished, and they express their pride through membership in the world’s most prestigious representative association. MANA representative members are an elite, highly professional group that gives back to the representative profession through membership in the association that is dedicated to advancing the professionalism and utilization of independent manufacturers’ representatives.

The Calpacific Equipment Company believes that this recognition of their long-term membership in the Manufacturers’ Agents National Association demonstrates their commitment to providing the best service to their customers.
