TemPress Associates was formed in 1989 and acquired by Steve Beals in 2001. Steve has over 25 years of experience in management as well as over 15 years in engineering and sales. He has extensive knowledge of computer systems and applications, and has served over 25 years as an officer in the US Navy and Navy Reserve.
Tom McCullough founded WOA Controls in 2004 after more than 30 years working in engineering and sales. His previous work experience includes inside and outside sales at Gilson Engineering for 8 years. He founded Temco in 1983, which he owned and managed for nearly 20 years before selling to a group of key employees.
WOA Controls and TemPress Associates merged in early 2012 to form WOA-TemPress. Tom has since retired.
Bruce Gerhardt joined the team soon after that. Prior to joining the WOA team, he worked with Technical Controls/SeaPort Controls/Valin Corp. for 18 years as customer service supervisor (10 years) and outside sales (8 years). He also spent 9 years in the US Army Reserve specializing in communication.
In 2015, WOA-TemPress merged with Murrell-Hickey, adding Dave Robinson to the team. He specializes in the municipal marketplace and has an outstanding reputation with integrators and end-users alike.
in 2018, we added Brent Erickson who has spent most of his career selling flow metering products. He brings a wealth of knowledge in sales and technical support. He also spent 6 years in the US Navy and Navy Reserve as an Engineman.
The result is a company that provides principals and customers with unequaled product and territory coverage.
WOA-TemPress is more than just a sales organization. Customers have grown to rely on its vast experience and the product knowledge of its personnel. Each person has over 15 years of experience in applications and products. These "lessons learned" are shared and applied to specific customer applications to achieve maximum results.
