Manufacturer hires first Director of New Business Development

Grover Precision of Oxford, ME is happy to announce the hiring of Grant Niewinski at the company’s Director of New Business Development. Niewinski brings 17 years of sales and marketing experience to the Maine manufacturer, and will head up the company’s new business efforts.

For the past seven years Niewinski was the managing director and market manager for the United States for Forecreu, a French tubing manufacturer dealing mostly with the medical OEM (original equipment manufacturing industry). With a proven track record for success at Forecreu, both through rapid internal growth and increased revenue, Niewinski will be called upon to push Grover to new heights, both internationally and domestically.

“Grant is a major acquisition for us,” said Grover President Rob Pierson, “The relationships Grant has built with medical device OEMs and contract manufacturers is invaluable, as well as Grant’s ability to work with clients and cultivate those relationships. We’re not just getting a great salesman; we’re getting his notebook! We can’t wait for him to get started.”

“I am extremely excited to be part of the Grover team and start a new chapter in my business career,” said Niewinski. “I’m looking forward to growing the commercial side of the business to new heights, and attacking a medical device market that is looking for world-class suppliers who can deliver speed and precision.”

Prior to his time at Forecreu, Niewinski gained experience both as an account manager with Lapham-Hickey and a financial advisor with Sequoia Premier Partners, Inc., building an impressive skillset which he is ready to utilize with Grover. Niewinski will be based primarily in Chicago.
