ISSA Interclean October 26 – 28, 2016 Trade Show Chicago, IL:   Tacony National Sales Manager trio Jeff Pease, Bill Violand and Saul Esparza benefited from State of Missouri Department of Economic Development G-MAP program offering partial funding to defray costs associated with trade show expenses in the amount of $4,500.   Attending expo events broadens the opportunity of the Tacony sales force to demonstrate our high-end product line and discover/develop customer leads ¾ which in-turn fronts product orders.   The obvious trickle-down results are product requisitions at Tacony Manufacturing in St. James, therefore, stabilizing Tacony’s workforce.   ISSA Interclean remains the leading worldwide association for the cleaning industry by representing all the professions it encompasses and by allying with other trade organizations that share common goals.   The association leverages the strength of its global cleaning community to change the way the world views cleaning – increasing the appreciation for cleaning as an investment in human health and the environment.   International sales… Absolutely Tacony Manufacturing  is interested.    


For the past year HR Manager and grant writer Nancy Montgomery in St. James coordinated international event funding thru the State of Missouri G-MAP and MO STEP=UP programs with Tacony’s International Sales Manager Tornado Division Glenn Cederberg as he traveled to Bolivia, Dubai and Cartagena Colombia.     Reimbursement for the three trips will exceed $18,000.00.


Missouri International Trade and Investment Office Trade Specialist Paola Coronel recently contacted Nancy with an offer to attend the EXPO MANUFACTURA in Monterrey, Mexico.   Nancy forwarded the invitation to Bill Violand who suspected the possibility of grants for this trip.  Sure enough!  Tacony National Sales Manager duo Bill and Saul will travel to Monterrey, Mexico in February 2017 ¾  an expected $5,800 reimbursement from G-MAP.   Bill’s two travel/event reimbursements are set to exceed $10,000.
