J&J Truck Equipment, a division of Somerset Welding & Steel, announced that Jim Weir, sales manager, will retire effective February 2, 2018.

Weir joined the company 34 years ago and held a variety of positions within the organization prior to serving as its sales manager. Before joining J&J, Weir worked at Solar Fuel and taught welding classes in the evening. He also served in the United States Army.

Weir says, “I have enjoyed the work, the people and the challenges during my tenure at J&J, but I am excited about beginning the next chapter in my life. I wish the company and its employees continued success.”

Weir was also an active member of several distributor councils where he shared his experience and expertise of the truck equipment industry. Since announcing his retirement, he has guided the sales team to ensure a smooth transition upon his departure.

“Jim’s accomplishments and commitment to our company helped to increase our profitability, expand our product lines, and allowed us to develop strong relationships with our customers and vendors,” says Bill Riggs, president of Somerset Welding & Steel. “He will be missed.”
