PEER Chain Company, a leading industrial chain provider, announced today that Glenn Spungen will join the company as President effective October 1, 2012. Spungen will manage all facets of the operation and oversee the expansion of the third-generation family business. His vision is to enhance customer service, build upon existing distributor relationships, and grow the original equipment manufacturer business.
Spungen adds a wealth of sales management and operational experience to the team, having held key leadership roles at PEER Bearing Co. for 27 years. As Vice President of Sales and Operations, Spungen spearheaded sales in the United States and China, travelled extensively overseas to preside over the company’s manufacturing plants, and oversaw the operations in the United States.

“I’m incredibly excited to work with the PEER Chain team and build on our commitment to delivering the best customer experience in the industry,” said Spungen. “We’ve identified major opportunities worldwide where we can develop new business and make a significant impact in the industry. I’m also eager to work with my family, colleagues and partners to ensure that the PEER Chain brand is the most trusted and respected in the industry.”
PEER Chain provides a variety of products for a broad range of applications, including heavy drive chains for agricultural and oil-field equipment as well as conveyor chain for critical civil engineering projects. For more than 40 years the company has provided ANSI- and ISO-
compliant chain for the food, citrus, lumber, and sugar markets, and to the agricultural, construction, and sewage treatment equipment markets. More information on the company’s products and markets can be found at http://www.peerchain.com.
