Meet JP Square, Aalberts surface technologies’ Regional Sales Manager for the South and West. He is based in Tulsa, OK.
JP has been part of the Aalberts team for 4 ½ years. He started with Applied Process which is now part of Aalberts surface technologies. JP worked closely with the facility in Fort Smith, Arkansas. That facility was just starting up when he joined the company. He is very proud of how he has helped to build steady work flowing into Fort Smith, which continues to have record sales months. And, he is excited about the future as Aalberts surface technologies continues to grow and add processes to its portfolio of services.
JP grew up just outside of Tulsa, in Broken Arrow, OK. JP attended the University of Arkansas where he fulfilled his dream of playing D1 football. He says the best advice he ever received is “Never give up.”
His first job after college was a buyer for Gulfstream G650 wings. And in his current role with Aalberts he sells HIP’ing, brazing, and heat treatment to a variety of industries. Although JP says with a bit of a laugh, “the biggest misconception is for people who don’t know, think we sell Heat Exchangers.” And, after the furnaces were installed in Fort Smith, JP says he had to field questions from people wondering if we were frying chicken in the plant since there was a chicken processing plant down the road.
On the weekends you will most likely find JP doing…sports. He stays on the go, whether it is watching or coaching one of his sons’ teams or biking with his daughter. If he can find the time, he might hit the links or catch Tiger when he is playing. During football season, he loves to watch college football and follows the Razorbacks, of course!
