N.A.

Peterson says the company is recognized as one of America’s leading factory-rep agencies and has additional offices in Indianapolis; Memphis, Tenn.; Minneapolis; Raleigh, N.C.; Roanoke, Va.; and Springfield, Mo.
“We are very pleased with this new partnership,” says Don Armacost Jr., president and chief executive officer of Grandview, Mo.-based Peterson. “N.A.

Meanwhile, we thank our former partners, Hirsig-Frazier, for their many years of association and wish them continued success.”
According to Steve Meagher, Peterson vice president of sales, customers in Arkansas, Louisiana, Oklahoma and Texas have received field contact information for their new N.A. Williams reps. “Should customers have questions regarding the change, we invite them to contact our customer service department directly, or via our website,” Meagher says. “We’re confident that customers will be as pleased as we are with this new business relationship.”
