Andre Heidari, Versa Pak’s newest Sales Specialist, was interested in the company from the first moment he toured the plant. Hear more from Heidari in his own words below:
When I first moved to Ohio, I had set up an interview to speak with Jeff and Michael about a sales position here at Versa Pak.
When we met, I was taken on a plant tour and shown firsthand how polyethylene was extruded. I was intrigued and fascinated by the way additives and multiple resins can be manipulated into many different blends. This made me want to learn more about the industry and how we are providing solutions for our distributors.
The interview went well, and at the time Versa Pak was looking to implement a new sales rep within a year, so, for the time being, I took another job.
After a years’ time, I contacted Jeff to see if the position was still open. We had another interview, and this time, things again went well. I was offered the sales position and started March 25, 2019.
A Day in the Life of a Versa Pak Sales Specialist

Heidari, along with Erika Geier and Jeff Knapke, talk with new and existing distributors at The United Group Conference 2019.
Back at the office, Heidari spends most of his day helping his distributors solve their problems. Sometimes that requires communication, collaboration – and lots of coffee.
Heidari gets ready to call on some of his distributors as well as prepares for an upcoming trade show in Cleveland.
Heidari heads out to the plant floor to check on some new product, fresh off the line.
Heidari and the team call a meeting to go over new distributor updates and swap stories from their recent sales travels.
Heidari hits the road to Cleveland to attend the Plastics Extrusion World Expo, learn more about the current market and meet potential distributors.
The Plastics Extrusion World Expo was held in the Huntington Convention Center in downtown Cleveland this year.
It’s back to the office after the trade show, with new knowledge to share and potential distributors to follow up with.
Time to get back out on the floor to focus on the new five-layer line to begin running new opportunities for future distributors.
