New President For Crown and Mat Tech

FREMONT, OH — U.S. based Crown Mats and Matting and Canadian based Mat Tech, two of the oldest and largest matting manufacturers in North America, announce that industry veteran Vince DePhillips is now the president of both companies.

Vince is a long-time matting veteran with over 25 years of experience in the industry.  Prior to joining Crown and Mat Tech, Vince served as the Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Superior Manufacturing Group for approximately 8 years and later became president of the company.  

Superior Manufacturing Group is also manufacturer of matting systems.

“Vince brings with him a strong customer orientation and a firm belief in service and quality.  With Vince at the helm, we will further build and enhance Crown’s and Mat Tech’s sales, marketing, and manufacturing organization,” says Dennis Knapp, Director of Sales for Crown Mats and Matting. “Bringing Vince onboard is part of our strategy for maintaining and growing the positions of both of our companies as the premier matting manufacturers in the industry.”

According to Andrew Bohutinsky, Managing Director of Desco Capital, which now owns both companies, there is considerable excitement about having someone of Vince’s caliber head our two firms.  

“Vince represents one of the many long-term investments that we are making in the business to provide our customers with the best products and service possible and build upon our company’s over 70 year history.  We look forward to partnering with Vince and the entire Crown and Mat Tech team to achieve these goals.”
