April 9, 2018 –Talbert Manufacturing, a North American leader in specialized heavy-haul solutions, has welcomed Steve Gardonyi as Canadian sales manager. Gardonyi assists dealers in Canada with Talbert trailer sales, marketing and customization. He is also helping to bring the 80-year-old company’s heavy-haul solutions to more people throughout the region, broadening the company’s Canadian dealer network.

“There is a lot of synergy between Steve and our team, both in terms of experience and passion as well as a commitment to customer success,” said Troy Geisler, Talbert Manufacturing vice-president of sales and marketing. “The knowledge he brings from multiple facets of the industry will help us continue our mission to provide our customers with the heavy-haul solutions they need to be successful, whether that’s ‘off-the-shelf’ trailers or fully customized units.”

Gardonyi has nearly 30 years of industry experience, which includes operations management, quality control, sales and customer service. He also carries a Red Seal certification in trailer mechanics.

“Success in this market takes hard work, a strong team and quality processes that start from the time we answer the phone until a satisfied driver is pulling their Talbert trailer down the road,” Gardonyi said. “I know Austin Talbert had that same vision, and it’s my honor to lift that torch he lit in 1938 high enough for everyone in Canada to see.”

In addition to carrying the Talbert torch, Gardonyi is active in his community through the Central Ontario District Optimists, where he served a term as governor. The club provides youth services — such as athletic leagues, scholarship essays and local school support — to improve the lives of children.


Gardonyi lives in Burlington, Ont. with his wife, Angelina, and Shih Tzu, Reggie. They have two children, Michael and Natasha, who live in the area.
