SAS Automation Announces Canadian Sales and Distribution Partnership

A previous relationship is new again as Jerry Shelley, Owner of MSJ Sales and Distribution, becomes the Canadian sales and distribution representative for SAS Automation. With a previous sales and distribution company, Shelley worked closely with SAS Automation, their products and their team.
With nearly 20 years of experience in the plastics and injection molding and automation industries, Shelley is well-aligned to regain and build SAS Automation’s robotic End-of-Arm tooling (EOAT) impact on manufacturers throughout Canada.
“Jerry is one of the most experienced and respected representatives in the industry and is an expert with our Canadian markets,” said SAS Automation Owner and President Trent Fisher. “We have a wonderful history with him and are excited about the path SAS and MSJ are on together.”
Prior to launching MSJ Sales and Distribution in February of 2014, Shelley was instrumental in developing sales strategies and markets for the companies he represented, including SAS Automation.
“I enjoyed working with SAS and helping them get off the ground as an EOAT brand for the automotive sector in Ontario,” said Shelley. “For almost 10 years, I helped build and grow the SAS brand and product line across Canada. When I made the decision to begin MSJ Sales and Distribution, I knew I wanted to represent SAS Automation again as a flagship product line.”
Shelley and MSJ Sales and Distribution will not only provide Canadian customers with the quality products and solutions SAS is known for, but also act as the local supplier and technical support staff, which in many circumstances should help to reduce costs for Canadian customers.
“With SAS’ product line, I can offer customers more than just the EOAT piece they need, I can eliminate limitations,” said Shelley. “The SAS engineering team provides real solutions specific to a customer’s needs, beyond an ‘off-the-shelf’ option. Their quality, service and depth of experience in the automotive, plastics, food and palletizing industries present many opportunities for the future of MSJ, SAS and companies throughout Canada.”
