Peter Thorpe

Ontario Customer Service

After 14 years of Customer Service positions, I moved into outside sales and ultimately ended up selling Compressed Gas Cylinders for SCM Technologies, covering Canada, the United States, and Mexico.  SCM was purchased by Worthington Cylinders and I then spent the next 12 years as a Territory Manager for Canada, selling Industrial, Medical, and Propane Gas cylinders coast to coast.  For the last 8 years, I have been working for Diversco Supply, the first 3 as Western Regional Manager and another 3 as Southern Ontario Sales Representative.  I tried to retire after being on the road for the last 28 years, but Diversco is a great place to work and they asked me to stay on as a Customer Service representative and share my knowledge and skills with our newest team members, so I decided to stay on a few more years. I thoroughly enjoy my work at Diversco Supply, especially the interactions with customers and vendors alike.  I look forward to your calls and assisting you with solving your problems and sharing a smile.
