Product Specialists

Brame Product SpecialistsWhen you work with Brame Specialty we assign a Sales Rep to manage your account. They are your main point of contact and will handle all of your day to day concerns. But as we all know, sometimes situations arise where you need the help of a specialist. And while Brame works with some of the best vendor reps in the business, we also have four full-time specialists on staff to help you, and your Sales Rep, solve any problem that might arise.

He is now a Senior Product Specialist concentrating on Laundry, Warewash and Housekeeping cleaning products for the Jan/San Industry, with a special focus on Green Cleaning Products.

He is willing to go the extra mile to make sure your cleaning concerns are addressed and you have the proper product in your location to get the job done right.
