Cleveland, OH – June 2016 – JIS is pleased to announce new additions to our team! Cindy Lukovski and Dave Strobelt come to us from our recent acquisition of B&G Supply in Akron, OH.

Cindy Lukovski joins JIS after running B&G Supply for over 20 years. B&G came into the Lukovski family in 1984, when her husband Richard acquired the business. After his passing in 1995, Cindy took ownership of the company. Her background is in sales and customer service. Born and raised in Youngstown, OH, Cindy has four children and four grand children. Outside of work, she enjoys reading, playing piano and spending time with her family. Cindy feels that transitioning to JIS will give her customers more opportunities.

We are excited for the future as Cindy joins the Technical Field Sales Team. She will be located out of our new Akron/Canton Branch and can be reached via email at Cindy.lukovski@jis.com.

Dave Strobelt comes to JIS with over 30 years of experience in manufacturing, holding a variety of positions. He joins our Technical Field Sales Team after working 4.5 years at B&G Supply. From Canton, OH, Dave is married to his wife Kathie and together they have two children. Their oldest son is a senior at Walsh University. Their youngest son, a recent high school graduate, will be attending Mount Union in the fall. Outside of work, Dave enjoys the outdoors and visiting car shows to view classic cars.
With this new transition to JIS, Dave is excited to provide his customers the best support, tooling and supplies. JIS is enthusiastic to watch Dave grow in his position. He will be located out of our new Akron/Canton Branch and can be reached via email Dave.strobelt@jis.com.

Stan Andrews joins JIS after 26 years at B&G Supply working Customer Service and Sales. From Akron, OH, Stan enjoys golfing and doing yard work. He has been married to his wife Diana for 32 years. Prior to the acquisition, Stan explains that he was some-what familiar with JIS, but was not aware of what all they had to offer. He is enthusiastic to work within the JIS team and learn about the new products he can offer to his customers.
JIS is excited to see Stan’s development within the JIS Technical Field Sales Team. He will be located out of our new Akron/Canton Branch and can be reached by email at Stan.Andrews@jis.com.

Brenda Kerr comes to JIS after 27 years at B&G Supply. She began working in Shipping and was then promoted to Office Manager – what she affectionately calls the “Head Go-fer”. Brenda is originally from Pennsylvania, but she has spent all of her life in Ohio. She has been married for 26 years to her husband Doug. Their daughter is also married and has given Brenda two grandchildren. When not at work, you will find Brenda camping, fishing or doing anything outdoors!
