"We are thrilled to represent such an innovative, environmentally responsible pioneer in the plumbing industry," said Mike Hanley, MR & Associates managing director. "Sloan's been out in front of the demand for healthy, water-saving restroom solutions, without compromising a 100+ year reputation of product quality and performance. We hope this is the beginning of a long, productive relationship."
Founded in 1959 and serving Missouri, Illinois, Kansas and western Kentucky, MR & Associates has long standing partnerships with several leading manufacturers of plumbing and building products, such as Pfister, Elkay and Bemis. Hanley's father, Lee, who founded MR as The L.R. Hanley Co., was the first representative for Bobrick, a company MR & Associates still represents today; his grandfather sold Sloan brand flushometers nearly 90 years ago.
"We're very proud of these lifelong partnerships, to be part of the development of the region over the past six decades and to bring design and build teams the finest products available," said Hanley.
To support its consistent growth, MR & Associates also has announced the recent appointment of Brian McKanna as business development manager in Missouri and Kansas, and Michael Hanley Jr. as architectural sales manager in Missouri.
