BOURNE IDENTITY: FOAM EXPO EDITION

He shouldn’t have made it. The distance to the train…the luggage he was carrying…all of it conspired against him. For any ordinary man, this would be impossible.

But then, this was no ordinary man.

This was Kreston Welch.

RAM’s Director of Global Business Development broke into a sprint as the seconds ticked down to the train’s departure. Like a resourceful and nimble Jason Bourne, Kreston maneuvered with maximum speed – a virtual human Formula One car in a sea of people. There was no way he was going to miss the Foam Expo in Hanover, Germany. There it is! Just yards left. The doors start to close. No! A final heroic push, taxing his muscles and lungs to the limit as he lunges into the train passenger car, leaving barely a second to spare as the door closes behind him.

Such was a day in the life of RAM’s representative to the global business community, as he proudly represented our capabilities, technologies, global reach, and exciting materials to a whole mess of people. Technically, a Deutsche Messe full of people.

With RAM increasingly partnering with customers from all corners of the planet, we were well situated to explain our excellence and show our wares to an international gathering.

In the space of just a few days, new connections and friendships were formed, and new customers were gained; showing the exciting European adventure was more than worth it. We’ll see you next time, Foam Expo!

 

RAMS & GOPHERS

“We can do that. We don’t even need a reason.”

Channeling greenskeeper Carl Spackler, on Tuesday, September 17, RAM Technologies’ own Greg Wright, Kreston Welch and Alex Sankey appeared at Harbor Point Golf Club and loudly announced to the entire clubhouse their intention to kill every gopher on the course with malice aforethought.

The perplexed patrons dissuaded the bloodthirsty threesome from their mammalian murder mission and asked them to, instead, join everyone that was partaking in a charity golf tournament. Our fearless trio agreed to save their vengeance for another day. Here is the triumphant team, proudly posing on the 6th hole with the implements of destruction they had originally brought to bear against the burrowing rodents.

Congratulations to Greg, Kreston and Alex for representing RAM well and raising funds for a worthy local children’s charity! The gophers may have survived to live another day, but it was worth it.

 

Sank You Very Much Ladies & Gentlemen

RAM is delighted to announce the return of one of our favorite family members to the fold.

Having started with RAM in 2012, by 2017 Alex Sankey was working remotely (from Spokane) as an Account Manager for us. The arrangement, and the commute, was not easy on a guy with a young and growing family. But he was a good soldier until an opportunity crossed his path that it would have been foolish to turn down.

But thankfully times and circumstances have changed so that on August 20 Alex will be able to join us once again. And once again, Alex’s gimlet eye for opportunities and details, his extensive knowledge of foams and fabrics, his ready laugh, his winsome personality with customers, and his mighty appetite for McDonald’s, will all be brought to bear for RAM in the marketplace.

We couldn’t be happier that the stars have aligned and that Alex’s many felonies have been expunged from his criminal history so that we are able to bring Alex back on as an Account Manager in our growing company as we continue our conquest of the foam and fabric world.
