Ed Baxter graduated from Mercer University in Macon, Georgia with a Bachelor of Science degree and a major in business. In 1984, he then went on to build a decades long career in various fields, proving his skills and knowledge as an employee. This all began at Bearings and Drives Inc. where Ed was a Fluid Power Division Manager. In this position he specialized in hydraulic and pneumatic system design but also worked in sales, marketing, and training capacities over twenty-one different branches of the business. From here he went on to Rexroth Pneumatics and was their South East District Manager. He also worked in pneumatic system design here, focusing those efforts primarily into distribution and OEM sales. Ed’s next business venture was with PL&E Sales where he worked as the Sales Manager for all of South Carolina. During his time here he was in charge of distribution and OEM sales for process, pneumatic, and electrical controls as well as system design. He has experience as South Carolina Senior District Manager at Emerson, ASCO NUMATICS also. While here he further honed his skills in the distribution and OEM sales of process controls, pneumatic systems, and component sales.
It was after this last position that we were pleased to welcome Ed into the I&M Industrials family. With so much experience and great talent in his field, he was a tremendous asset to add to our ranks. Over his time with us he has presided over all EPC and OEM accounts where he specializes in process control systems and compressed air design.
When not working to further build his reputation as a valuable employee, Ed enjoys an active life. He can often be found enjoying the great outdoors while cycling, golfing, playing tennis, or trout fishing. He also enjoys music and loves being a musician. No matter what he is doing with his free time though, one of his greatest joys is spending time with his friends and family.
