Kness Expands Sales Capabilities

Joe Belcher

Premier pest control product manufacturer Kness Mfg. Co., Inc. is excited to welcome Joseph Belcher as the newest member of its sales team. Joseph’s official title is Western USA Pest Control Sales Manager, with a territory of 16 states reaching from Texas to Washington, as well as Hawaii. He will continue to grow the presence of the company, which is known for its innovative and effective pest control products.

Belcher, who is from Chariton, Iowa, enters the position with previous experience in distribution and as a lead manager. In his new role, he will work to bring Kness products — which range from the recently released Flies-No-More™ Solar Trap to the original Ketch-All® Multiple Catch Mousetrap — to new people and places.

"I am looking forward to working with all of the accounts in my territory, and helping grow Kness' presence in the western United States," said Belcher. "Kness is a great American-owned company that has that Midwest feel to it. They care about the community and work hard to stay at the forefront of the industry."

"Joseph is a great addition to the Kness team, and will bring valuable experience and a passion for the job to his new position," said Kness President Kathy Wauson. "He understands the value of our pest control products, and will work hard to serve our customers in the western U.S."
