Ewing brings experience, superior service and educational programs to the North Carolina market with the opening of two locations in the Charlotte area.
September 24, 2010, Phoenix, Ariz.— Ewing Irrigation Products, the Phoenix-based distributor of landscape, irrigation and industrial products, makes its entrance into the North Carolina market with the opening of a new location in Charlotte.
The newly remodeled 24,824-square-foot facility, located at 325 Westinghouse Blvd., is now open for business. An additional branch, located at 6829 Statesville Rd., is set to open in North Charlotte later this year.
The growing amount of commercial work and new home construction served as a catalyst for Ewing’s expansion into the market. Ewing serves more than 195 locations in the U.S., spanning the West Coast, Southwest, Midwest and Southeast.
“Charlotte is the most logical area for the company’s progression,” says Steven Johnston, Ewing’s Regional Manager for the East Coast. “Charlotte is a growing city, and will continue to grow for many years.”
Johnston, a 27-year industry veteran who previously served on the residential and commercial sales team for Ewing in the Georgia area, serves as the interim manager of the Charlotte branch.
Accompanying Johnston on this new endeavor is Jeremy Bohonko, who will serve as manager of the North Charlotte location.
Working previously out of Ewing’s headquarters in an inside sales capacity, Bohonko understands very well the operations side of the company. His industry experience has prepared him to serve a wide variety of customers, ranging from sports field maintenance and golf course professionals to residential and commercial contractors.
“I am looking forward to the challenges of a new and growing market, and establishing long lasting relationships with the community and customers alike,” says Bohonko.
In addition to bringing industry experience and service to the Charlotte market, Ewing will provide customer development and training.
Ewing Education Services is offering several courses this season in the Charlotte area ranging from Irrigation Troubleshooting and Water Management to Business Development and workshops preparing customers for certification as a Landscape Irrigation Auditor or Irrigation Contractor.
