Meet the Team: Kansas City’s Industrial Automation Specialists

We’d like to introduce you to Joe LaBella and Dominic Dasta, two Automation Specialists at our French Gerleman Kansas City branch. They provide pre-sale assistance as you select and specify the optimum solution for your application, as well as post-sale technical support.  What makes them different than others in the industry? Let us tell you.

Because they are solution focused, not sales focused, they are unique to their peers in the industry.  They are available to assist, educate and answer questions.  As a customer of French Gerleman, they are available for you to contact and work with on your projects.  With an eye on the end result, they help to ensure your automation investment tackles your efficiency, productivity and profitability issues.

“We have helped customers on solutions including varying components that would normally be handled by multiple product people,” says Dasta.  “One job included: breakers; motor control and pilot devices; automation, including PLCs, distributed I/O and HMIs; drives; and even enclosures and wiring devices.”

Together, Dominic and Joe have a combined 40+ years of industry experience.  Like the rest of our Automation Specialists, they have the depth and breadth of industry knowledge and experience to help answer questions and make sure your automation investment translates into increased efficiency and productivity that will improve your bottom line.

“Honestly, the best of my job is seeing how stuff gets made,” says LaBella. “Being able to listen to a customer’s unique needs for their process requirements and helping find a cost effective solution is the fun part. Starting with the customer’s design, helping provide their bill of material and then assisting them post sale is very rewarding.”

At French Gerleman, we make it our mission to solve our customers’ questions and problems, offering solutions and the insight/training you might need to strengthen your skills. If your business is looking to set up training, feel free to give us a call and we can offer options to meet your needs.

Our Kansas City branch is located in the suburb of Lenexa, Kansas along the I-35 corridor. Our territory includes Northwest, Missouri; Southwest, Missouri; and all of Kansas.
