Midstate Tool & Supply Company, Inc, located in Altoona, Pennsylvania, has retained The Lytle Group, a consulting company that provides strategic HR solutions to assist them in their succession and leadership transition plan.
Midstate is a warehouse distributor servicing the automotive and industrial tool and equipment markets nationally and internationally.
Barry Halbritter, company president, said, “Our company has been extremely successful in serving a large client base of more than 335 U.S.-based leading brand manufacturers in the automotive and industrial tool and equipment market. We could not have achieved our success without the commitment of our dedicated employees and our valued customers. We want to position the company for future growth and continued success. To help us achieve those goals, we will also be promoting a valued member of our leadership team to the newly created position of vice president of operations and finance. In addition, my brother Rob and my wife Marlene will be joining me on a newly created board of directors so that we can continue to provide broad oversight and direction to the company going forward.”
Rob Halbritter, executive vice president of sales, said that the company will initially focus on adding a vice president of sales and marketing to the team so he can assist with the succession transition.
Barry Halbritter added, “We are investing in this succession planning process to ensure that our employees can continue to grow and prosper personally and professionally, and that we can continue to provide the highest level of service to our customers.”
