Wilk will represent the entire range of Würth products and services, lead customer planning cycles, be the point of continuity for customer headquarters, and ensure effective communication between the customer and WINA locations. He will also be the point of contact with Würth Industry companies in Europe and Asia.


Wilk most recently served as region manager in the central U.S. for Gexpro Services and worked for the company for the past 10 years. He brings a deep understanding of providing supply chain solutions, diverse customer segments, as well as geographic markets.


“I’m excited to have Eric join the Würth team,” says Strandquist. “He adds valuable talent and a lot of experience to our group during a time of high sales growth. The timing couldn’t be better for both Heather and Erik to jump on board and help WINA continue to grow and gain market share.”
