Meet the Sales Team

Tony Pruszenski CPMR, President

Founder of TAP Industrial Sales. Tony founded the company in 2016 with the desire to offer a different kind of Sales Rep to the industry – one that was more concerned about problem solving and technical support than just making a sale. That is the culture he stresses to his team.

Tony identified the need for a new Hydraulic Rotary Actuator resource in the America’s to provide a quality product at a competitive price and pursued a relationship with SungJi Hydraulics. In 2016, he partnered with SJH to introduce the SungJi Hydraulics Brand to the America’s at Con-Expo in 2017 and continued to build it from there.

In addition to SJH, TAP represents a diverse portfolio of product and services including: Bearings, Power Transmission components, Truck Protect Equipment, Cable Protect Equipment, and Solutions for the conveying of Solid Materials.   With his diverse background, skilled problem solving, and relationship management, he is able to offer OEM’s and Distributors unique solutions that help them capture market share with the companies in Tony’s Toolbox.

Tony brings 30 years of experience to the company starting as a Journeyman Tool & Die Maker, moving into Engineering and Purchasing for various large OEM’s serving in multiple levels of management during his career. He embarked on his quest for Entrepreneurship as a Manufacturers Rep with the goal to build a team that strives to bring together suppliers and buyers for the commodities he represents. The diverse product offering was curated by his desire to provide the best quality products that meet his client’s needs to be delivered on-time, with engineering support at the right price. The commodities he represents can be found on the website.

Tony continues to seek out sales talent who exhibit the experience and values on which TAP Industrial Sales was founded.
