Scott has 29 years of experience in nickel based and cobalt based alloys and specialty stainless steels including 26 years of sales experience.  He is adept in all areas of corrosion, high temperature and wear applications.  Wayne Weaver, Vice President of Sales said, “Scott brings extensive background and experience and Electralloy is pleased and privileged to have him join our sales team”.

 In announcing Barnot’s retirement, Electralloy President, Tracy Rudolph said, “To have someone of Ed’s caliber for so many years was very fortunate for Electralloy.  We thank him for his outstanding service.  Electralloy will miss Ed and ‘Sunshine’ but we wish them great health and happiness as they enter the next phase of their lives”.

 Barnot, an avid hunter and fisherman, has plans to do plenty of both.
