Wayne Stair positions Americas International to excel

Since it was founded in 1997, Americas International Inc. has grown from its local roots in Akron, to today representing some of the world’s leading chemical companies from the United States, Europe and Asia. Under the leadership of President Wayne Stair, Americas has continued to build its reputation as a leading North American distributor of rubber and rubber chemicals by always going beyond meeting customer expectations and aiming to exceed them.

With a focus on value, personal service and innovative problem-solving solutions, Americas’ company culture keeps employees driven to provide solutions that always result in customer satisfaction. Employees at America know that customer satisfaction is the direct result of being able to deliver the company’s products and services in a timely and cost-effective manner for clients. In order to ensure its deliveries are always on time, with the right product always at the right place, Americas has grown its network of warehouse operations to include regional offices in Atlanta, Chicago and Los Angeles.

By having the right inventory for clients in warehouses around the country, Americas positions itself to always meet the requirements of suppliers and customers, ensuring their satisfaction and the company’s future success. As a result of its technical product expertise, dedicated customer service staff and top logistical support, Americas has been able to create a loyal base of customers while increasing its sales and optimizing long-term growth opportunities for the business.

From 2006 to 2007, the company generated a sales increase of 43 percent, and from 2007 to 2008, the company increased sales nearly 100 percent. Although sales dollars decreased in 2009 — a result of Americas’ products being tied to the price of oil — sales volumes actually increased from the previous year. By 2010, sales had taken off once again, and the result was another sales increase of more than 100 percent.
