Linetec has appointed Paul Bratz as regional sales manager for the Midwest region.
Bratz assumes the role with more than 15 years of experience managing Linetec’s paint and anodizing operations. He most recently served as the company’s quality manager. He has been with Linetec since 2002.
During his time with Linetec, a Wisconsin-based company that offers a central, single-source solution for the architectural finishing of aluminum products, Bratz has assisted aluminum product manufacturers, fabricators, architects, contractors, builders, property managers and owners with their selection and specification of painted coatings, anodize and specialty finishes.
In 2015, Bratz was recognized for “extraordinary support” of employees who participate in military service and honored with a Patriot Award by the Wisconsin Committee for Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve (ESGR), an agency of the U.S. Department of Defense.
Additionally, Bratz represents Linetec’s industry leadership as a member of the Fenestration and Glazing Industry Alliance (FGIA). He participates in FGIA as part of the AAMA Finishes Committee. This committee provides guidance on consistent testing criteria for all finishing standards, including AAMA 2603, 2604, 2605 for architectural coatings and 611 for anodize.
