Smitty's Supply Names Chad Tate as President 

Smitty's Supply Inc. announces that its Board of Directors has named Chad Tate as the Company's new President.  

Smitty's says that Chad Tate steps into this new role with a solid background from all facets of the company having served in various roles during his tenure at Smittys. Chad has served as Executive Vice President and COO for the past year and previously held roles in sales, operations, and manufacturing throughout the organization.  "Chad will lead and execute Smitty's long-term strategy to be the global leader in lubricant manufacturing and distribution."
Chad Tate joined the Smitty's team in 2009 and started his journey working closely with Mr. Ed Smith on special projects where he learned the business from the ground up.  Chad then moved into various other roles where he could contribute his expertise including the construction and start up of the grease facility, sales, and most recently in operations and manufacturing oversight roles. Chad's capacity for knowledge enabled him to rise rapidly throughout the Smitty's organization.
"On behalf of the board of directors, we want to thank Chad for his ongoing commitment to Smitty's and look forward to a bright future with Chad leading our team", stated Chuck Brister, Board member.
"Smitty's has been a growing dominant force in the lubricant industry having earned the respect and admiration of its customers and competitors through an unwavering commitment to product quality, operational excellence, and outstanding customer service. I undoubtedly believe that Chad Tate will continue to strive to serve this vision that I set out for the company", added Ed Smith, who will remain CEO and Chairman for Smitty's Supply.
"I am honored by the opportunity to lead the Smitty's team alongside a group of very talented executives who remain as committed to the vision of the company as I am. I will work tirelessly to serve Smitty's Supply for a bright future and long standing growth while following the core values of outstanding service that were the foundation of the company that Mr. Ray Smith founded in 1969", stated Chad Tate.
