Svensson Expands North American Sales Team

Jon Adams

Svensson welcomes three new members to its North American sales group: Jon Adams joins the Northeastern Region, Gary Hale comes to the Florida Territory and Jorge Gonzalez is now a sales engineer in Mexico.


Jon Adams has a strong background in technical sales and experience in the greenhouse and lighting, as a former vice president for one of Canada’s largest custom lighting manufacturers before moving into greenhouse lighting sales. Based in the Niagara area, Adams supports Svensson’s dealer network throughout the Northeastern territory, while providing growers on-demand technical support.

Gary Hale has more than 35 years of experience in the industry, including 17 years as owner and grower of an indoor foliage greenhouse, 5 years in sales at a polyethylene greenhouse film manufacturer and 13 years with XS Smith, Inc. as territory sales manager. He supports Florida and the surrounding southeastern states.

Jorge Gonzalez brings a diverse background in applied technologies to Svensson, as well as broad academic credentials from Canada, the U.S. and France. A Queretaro, Mexico native and current resident, Gonzalez provides more efficient support through closer contact with the customer base.

“The additions of these experienced professionals further enhance our coverage and take our customer service to new levels,” says Kurt Parbst, president of Svensson’s North- and South American subsidiary.
