By Minnich Manufacturing   


Aug. 23, 2016 - — Minnich Manufacturing is pleased to announce the hire of Rick Gramoll as utility sales representative. The addition of a dedicated utility salesperson strengthens Minnich’s commitment to the gas industry and continues the company’s growth.

Gramoll joins Minnich through a partnership with MBW, Inc., where he serves as national sales manager for the utility division. For Minnich, Gramoll will focus on U.S. and Canadian sales of The HornetTM utility drill, an ergonomic solution for drilling gas leak detection and extraction holes. The Hornet pairs perfectly with the MBW Vapor Extraction Unit (VEU), which pinpoints leak location and extracts gas from saturated soil.

“Rick brings a wealth of utility industry experience and passion for taking care of customers,” said Todd Jurjevic, director of sales at Minnich. “He’ll be a valuable resource for utility companies seeking a safer, more efficient gas extraction solution. Together, The Hornet from Minnich and the MBW Vapor Extraction Unit are the total package.”

Gramoll has worked in MBW utility division sales for the past three years, building relationships with customers throughout the U.S. and Canada. He holds a bachelor’s degree in business administration from the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh.

“I’m extremely excited to represent Minnich,” Gramoll said. “For years, I’ve used The Hornet in demos around the country, so I’m very familiar with the company and the product. I look forward to helping utility companies across the U.S. and Canada better meet their gas leak detection and extraction needs.”


The Hornet from Minnich saves the operator’s body and lets the machine take the abuse during the drilling of gas leak detection and extraction holes. Featuring a patent-pending design, The Hornet absorbs drill vibrations, reducing operator fatigue and increasing productivity. The unit feeds the drill in and out of the hole, allowing the operator to stand in an upright position. Compact, lightweight and easy to move, The Hornet is ideal for drilling through a variety of materials including concrete, asphalt, brick and dirt.
