Bill Stramer, vice president, marketing, sales and customer support, and Melvin Porter, vice president of finance and chief financial officer, have been elected to Link-Belt Construction Equipment Company’s board of directors after a meeting held at Sumitomo Heavy Industry (SHI) headquarters in Tokyo, Japan, in February. Link-Belt is a wholly owned subsidiary of SHI. Chuck Martz, Link-Belt’s chairman, CEO and president, made the announcement at Link-Belt’s headquarters in Lexington, Kentucky.

“This is an outstanding personal and professional accomplishment for both of these gentlemen,” said Martz. “It’s an honor they have earned through dedicated leadership and support of our efforts at Link-Belt.

“This is also a significant show of support by Link-Belt’s parent company, SHI, of what Link-Belt has accomplished and will continue to accomplish under their leadership.”
