Denver, Colo.—Jeff Fairbanks was recently named Palo Duro’s new president with the recent acquisition of Palo Duro Hardwoods by Lägler Holdings, the parent company of Eugen Lägler GmbH.
Fairbanks previously held Palo Duro’s vice president position and has been with the company since 1998. He has been integral to Palo Duro’s growth, its 20-year partnership with Eugen Lägler as the North American distributor of its sanding machines and the recent acquisition.
Additional promotions and additions are part of the new vision at Palo Duro and its new division, Lägler North America. Tom Ruekert, a sales manager for Palo Duro for several years, has been promoted to vice president of sales for Palo Duro. Adam Williams has joined as vice president of marketing for both Palo Duro and Lägler North America. Marc Schulz has accepted a leadership role in Lägler North America, and serves as liaison between Palo Duro and its new sister company, Eugen Lägler.
“We are aligning our talents and technology with a fresh vision for Palo Duro and Lägler’s future,” Fairbanks said. “We’re working hand in hand toward serving our customers in innovative, dynamic ways.”
