Ron Divers

Ron Divers
Vice President of Operations

Ron, who joined Precision in 2008, arrived at the abrasives industry from a slightly different angle — he trained as a tool and die maker in the United Kingdom.

That experience — operating industrial machinery, studying metallurgy, and learning related skills — helped him appreciate what he calls "the other side of the sale," and it went a long way to helping him learn the primary metals market.

"Most people think selling is the same as talking. I think, to fully understand the customer’s requirements, it is far better to be interested than interesting.” We say at Precision, “Stop selling and start helping.”

Before joining Precision, Ron spent more than twelve years with Norton, managing sales territories for abrasive products in industries as diverse as woodworking, aerospace, mill, and electronics. Ron left Norton as a Senior Corporate Application Engineer focused on the primary metals market. In that capacity, he provided engineering support to most of the steel mills producing flat rolled and bar products in North America. He was also awarded the company's Winners Circle Award for exceptional performance in sales as well as Saint-Gobain's Entrepreneurial Engineer Award for his work with large-diameter cut-off wheels.
