BEAUMONT, Texas — Hypertherm announced Coastal Welding Supply as the recipient of the 2013 Richard W. Couch, Jr. Award. The award, named after Hypertherm Chairman and CEO Dick Couch, recognizes the top independent distributor in Hypertherm’s North American region.
Coastal Welding Supply was selected through a ballot process involving Hypertherm’s management team, North American sales team, and customer and technical service teams. To be considered, distributors need to have independent status, employ a well-trained and knowledgeable sales staff, and support all of Hypertherm’s core product lines.
The award includes a $500 donation to a nonprofit organization of the winner’s choice. Coastal Welding selected the Southeast Texas Food Bank, an agency working to eliminate hunger.
This year’s award was personally presented to Coastal President Chuck Mazoch by Couch. In receiving the award, Mazoch thanked Hypertherm for its “tremendous technological support and for producing such a high-quality plasma product for us to be able to provide to our customers.”
