New McLaughlin hire brings Vermeer dealer, marketing experience

Company hires Jake Jeffords as regional sales representative


GREENVILLE, S.C. — McLaughlin is proud to welcome underground industry–veteran Jake Jeffords to their team as a regional sales representative. Jeffords is responsible for meeting the needs of McLaughlin customers in the Southeast, Mid-South and Eastern Canada regions.
Jeffords began his career in the construction equipment industry in 2003 at Vermeer Southeast, where he served as a territory manager for six years. He eventually moved into a product manager role working at Yanmar America and, most recently, as an attachments manager at JCB North America. He was responsible for developing and executing sales and marketing strategies as well as advancing the capture, revenue and profitably of company products.

“Jake brings impressive sales and industry knowledge to the McLaughlin team,” said Jeff Wage, vice president of McLaughlin. “Jake’s prior experience with Vermeer, his sales expertise, and his deep understanding of customer needs within the construction industry make him a valuable addition.”

McLaughlin is a leading manufacturer of trenchless construction equipment including auger boring machines, Vermeer-branded vacuum excavators and pneumatic piercing tools, as well as locators, directional drills and various attachments. Jeffords’ role will be to support the full line of McLaughlin products to dealers and customers.


Jeffords is replacing John Archambeault, a territory manager who is retiring after 28 years at McLaughlin. Archambeault came to the company in 1988 after serving in the U.S. military. McLaughlin is grateful to Archambeault for the dedication and expertise he provided throughout the years.
