DAKOTA BARTLES IS THE NEW GRANICH MUNICIPAL TERRITORY MANAGER FOR WESTERN WASHINGTON

Granich Engineered Products, a Beckwith & Kuffel company, is excited to welcome Dakota Bartles as our new Western Washington Municipal Territory Manager. Dakota replaces TM Ken Hogan who retired in September 2021 after 40 years in the pump business.

Dakota comes to us from an industrial pump rental company where he was an Outside Sales Rep. Prior to that Dakota served as the Utilities Manager at an animal feed and nutrition manufacturer.

Dakota earned his Bachelor of Science degree in Economics from Wichita State University in 2015. He recently relocated to the Pacific Northwest and is discovering why people enjoy making this area their home. He says, “I just love living here.”

Sales and Marketing VP John Wallace is impressed with Dakota’s background. “Because of his previous experience with rotating equipment, he will hit the ground running. Whether a new application or troubleshooting issues, he will be of immediate value to our customers,” Wallace said.

When he’s not working, Dakota enjoys adventurous outdoor activities. His favorites: dirt biking, snowboarding and mountain biking.

Since 1982, Granich has offered superior pump and process equipment sales and service for the states of Washington, Oregon, Alaska and Northern Idaho.
