Welcome John Gallo

It is my pleasure to welcome John Gallo to URC! Effective 5/1, John will begin his transition to VP of Non-Ferrous Metal Markets, as Tom Robich intends to retire 12/31/20.

John has spent over 40 years in the industry, holding numerous positions such as Application Engineer, Salesman and Marketing Manager. Most recently, he moved from National Sales Director for the Industrial Market at Vesuvius to the New Business Development Manager for Aluminum at Zampell Refractories. John’s combination of aluminum knowledge, familiarity with industrial accounts and construction expertise gives him a perfect opportunity to improve 4USERVICE for our customers.

John graduated from Penn State University with a BS in Material Science in Ceramic Engineering.

In regards to Tom, we want to formally thank him for his five years at URC!! Tom brought a level of technical expertise, management know how and professionalism that launched our now extremely solid and successful aluminum platform. More will be said about Tom when he reaches his retirement date, but please take a minute to say thanks as he begins his farewell tour.

Lastly, please welcome John to the team…We are blessed to have both he and Tom working for our aluminum customers over the next seven months.

Senior VP Sales & Marketing
