Beyond... The Ed Lowe Story
27, 2017) Ed Lowe became a Schaeffer Manufacturing sales
rep in 1993. He had driven a truck for 30 years delivering goods
in the US, Mexico and Canada. When he was introduced to Schaeffer
by a friend, he visited the plant in St. Louis. It wasn’t
long before a manager and tech associate came to make calls with
Ed. The first calls were made to chicken processing plants needing
food-grade lubricants. Schaeffer’s Tech Dept. and head chemist
worked with Ed to expand the food-grade lubricant product line.
There have been many improvements to the lubricants over the years,
going beyond the expected to get to the excellent.
Ed enjoys meeting his customers face-to-face which is one reason
he loves the racing community. Ed’s experience in the racing
community has forged long relationships with prominent racers
such as Ray Cook and Casey Roberts. Ed takes the time to get what
you need for your operation and keeps coming back to make sure
it’s working. He goes beyond what is required. |
