He started his employment with the "Loop Program", Bethlehem Steel’s management training program. Upon completion, Peter became an Industrial Engineer at Bethlehem’s Seattle, Washington, steel plant which consisted of three rolling mills, a reinforcing fabricating shop, and an industrial fastener manufacturing plant.

During this tenure he had specific management responsibilities for reinforcing steel, carbon bars, alloy bars, and industrial fasteners.

In 1981 he was promoted to Manager of Industrial Fasteners Sales for Bethlehem’s western region (11 states). He remained Manager of Sales after Bethlehem sold the facility to Seattle Steel until the fastener plant closing was announced in December, 1985. After a two year stint as Manager of Sales for Birmingham Steel’s Salmon Bay facility in Seattle (a producer of merchant bar and reinforcing steel), he began his own manufacturer’s representative business where he is now president.

Peter’s experience selling a wide variety of rolled steel products and industrial fasteners on the west coast for over thirty years enhances Hardware Representative's ability to represent principals manufacturing these and similar products.
