ALPOLIC Announces New Sales Staff

July 19, 2022

(Chesapeake, VA) July 19, 2022 – Mitsubishi Chemical America’s ALPOLIC® Division, a leader in metal composite materials (MCM) manufacturing, is proud to announce the addition of two industry veterans to its ALPOLIC sales department.  

Steve Tatro

Joining are Steve Tatro who is the division’s new regional sales manager for the Southwest and Chad Patterson who now serves as the account executive for the South-Central area.  Both Tatro and Patterson are familiar with the metal composite industry because of their extensive prior experience with the fabrication of MCM.  

“I’ve known both Steve and Chad for a long time. I’m excited to have them on our team and know they will be a huge asset to their customers because of their wealth of knowledge in the application of ALPOLIC,” said Dave Kearney, director of sales and marketing. 

Steve Tatro brings with him in-depth knowledge of our materials and their advantages. “Coming from the end-user perspective, I have experience in the needs of the fabrication community, and I hope I can serve as a resource to architects and designers who want to specify ALPOLIC,” said Tatro.

Chad Patterson

For Patterson, whose years of experience with premier companies that utilize MCC, joining ALPOLIC was a good fit. “My background in project management includes estimating, installation, field measurement, drafting/drawing and sales.  I think this translates well in my ability to help my customers not only understand the benefits of ALPOLIC, but also how the material should be fabricated and applied,” said Patterson.

As part of the ALPOLIC sales team, Tatro and Patterson will oversee established client accounts, while continuing to promote ALPOLIC to the industry’s numerous architects, fabricators, designers, and specifiers.
