Eric Hensley is the Outside Sales Representative for Curbell Plastics Jackson and serves the Mississippi and Louisiana territory. He has over twenty years’ professional sales experience with fifteen of those dedicated solely to industrial plastics. Over the years he’s worked closely with government contracts, automotive plants, machine shops, and conveying equipment for food processing and the lumber industry.
Eric holds a deep regard for customer relationships and takes personal responsibility to contribute to a relaxed and confident buying experience. “My role is really about building relationships through customer service, fact-finding, and knowledge,” Eric explained, “all situations are different, but asking a few simple fact-finding questions can help uncover pains and solutions.” Using this process, it has helped Eric when he’s experienced some days that began with questions about chemical resistance, but wound up discovering that a material that could perform best in a sand slurry environment was actually the most pressing need.
A Partner in Your Success
Eric doesn’t just see customers, vendors, and co-workers as partners, but as family. “The relationships you make will last a lifetime. They become your extended family,” he said, “It’s a line you have heard a million times, but treat others as you would treat yourself and be understanding.” Eric holds his personal values close when he conducts business, which helps contribute to his long-lasting professional relationships. It’s a significant aspect of his work philosophy that contributes to helping his customers get what they need. “Always keep your integrity,” he stated, “no matter how much pressure is applied. Take your time, be steady, and get the job done.”
When Eric’s not meeting with customers, he enjoys golfing, hunting, and kayak fishing, just to name a few hobbies. “I love to be outdoors,” he said, “and the earlier the better. There is nothing like watching the sun come up early in the morning. Everything restarts with fresh optimism and excitement for the upcoming day.”
