RPS Marketing began in 2003 as a partnership between Rognlien, Perman, Salustri and TPA, Inc. The official merger of the agencies in January of 2005 brought together two of the strongest sales teams in the Western states. RPS, founded in 1982, grew to become a premier sales and service agency on the West Coast. TPA was a significant player in the Northwest since its inception in 1978. Many of the lines the two agencies represented from the beginning continue to grow with us today.
We have a great mix of veterans to cover our customer base, and each is an expert in his own class of trade. Most of our 16 key account salesmen have over 20 years of automotive aftermarket experience. We also have three service specialists working at the WD and jobber level. Because each of the partners has direct account responsibility with the top customers in each region, we are able to not only maximize our sales with those accounts, but also stay personally involved with virtually every manufacturer we represent.
RPS Marketing’s primary goal is to provide excellent service to both our customers and manufacturers in all phases of business. We understand the importance of clear, timely communication and meticulous follow-up. As an extension of your company, we offer you the comprehensive representation and service that will take your sales to the next level.
