Parent company Merrick Machine Company today announced Bob Krebs as its new RUVO National Sales Manager. RUVO has long been an industry leader in automated door machinery. RUVO machines are expertly designed for pre-hung, architectural, and commercial doors, along with jamb prep, casing, and door assembly. A full line of Triad Stair Equipment is also an integral part of the overall RUVO product line.


“Bob brings a strong history of building successful global sales teams. His ability to broaden the RUVO Independent Sales Organization will allow RUVO to continue to expand their vast equipment line and provide an even finer focus on the needs of our customers,” Triad/RUVO Senior National Sales Manager Lowell Tuma said.


Bob has built several large sales teams across a wide spectrum of industries; including Construction Technology, Security Integrations and Telecom, during his tenure with numerous Fortune 500 companies.


“Behind RUVO is a truly impressive group of individuals who are dedicated to providing stellar customer service and engineering innovations that allows our customers to become more efficient and focus on core profit-making competencies”, Krebs said. “I am eager and excited to begin working closely with our current incredible and dedicated independent sales team throughout North America, while expanding the team globally in the coming months.”


RUVO was purchased by Merrick Machine Company, a 60 year old Nebraska manufacturing group, in 1990. Since then, Merrick Machine Co. has refined and expanded the RUVO machine product line for door and millwork shops. As a result, RUVO Door Machines have become an integral part of the door and millwork industry throughout the world. More information on the RUVO product line can be found at
