Peoria, Ill. – Dust Control Technology has introduced Aaron Valencic as the company’s new Vice President of Sales. The world leader in open area dust suppression made the announcement after a lengthy search and interview process. Mr. Valencic will be responsible for key account development and management across the globe, as well as lead generation and strategic sales planning.

Valencic joins DCT after a 12-year career in sales and management, including five years at Philippi-Hagenbuch, Inc. where he served as Account Manager, selling custom-engineered products to the North American mining industry. He has extensive knowledge in the oil sands and Canadian iron ore industries, as well as coal, mining, aggregates and power generation, and was instrumental in uncovering significant opportunities in previously-untapped markets that are estimated to hold the potential for $10-15 million in annual sales.

“Aaron’s sales and management experience is a welcome addition to our team, and his knowledge of the mining industry and other key markets will be a huge asset,” commented CEO Edwin Peterson.

The new VP has broad experience in new product development, helping to make material hauling more efficient and productive. “In particular, his technical acumen will strengthen our leadership position and brand recognition, with an emphasis on opening up new markets and applications for our equipment,” Peterson added.

Valencic is active in numerous industry organizations, including SME, NSSGA and AIST. He is a graduate of Bradley University in Peoria, IL, with a B.S. in Marketing and a minor in Professional Selling and Sales Management.
