Putzmeister America, Inc. (Putzmeister) has hired Carlos Moreno as operations manager at its new Houston Sales and Service facility. As operations manager, he will oversee the staff responsible for mounting and servicing concrete transit mixers and providing service on mixers and pumps.

Moreno comes to Putzmeister from Surefire Industries, a manufacturer of frac trucks and associated equipment. Prior to Surefire, he spent 15 years in roles of increasing responsibility at International Truck and its subsidiary, Continental Mixers. He graduated from Facultad de Ingenieria Mecanica y Electrcia with a degree in mechanical engineering and received a master of business administration from Escuela de Graduados en Administracion e Ingeniera Industrial. 

“Carlos is extremely knowledgeable and experienced in the manufacturing process of a wide variety of construction equipment,” said Tom McKernan, Putmeister’s Director of Sales and Service for Concrete Transit Mixers. “We’re excited to draw upon his extensive experience to help make our new facility run even more efficiently and to better serve our customers in the south.”

Putzmeister opened its Houston, Texas location, a 41,400-square foot (3,846-m2) facility in March 2015 on six acres (2.3 ha) of property. The operations based there include the mounting center for concrete transit mixers, service center for concrete transit mixers, and Pro-tech Pre-owned Service Center for concrete pumps and Telebelts®. The location provides concrete transit mixer and concrete pump customers in Texas and neighboring states with more convenient access to parts and service personnel.
