(IRVING, TEXAS) – Hanson Building Products has appointed Dustin Kruger to vice president of U.S. sales of its Hanson Pipe & Precast division, the largest manufacturer of concrete pipe and precast products in North America. Kruger replaces Scott Szwejbka, who was recently tapped to lead the division.

A member of the Hanson Building Products team since 2006, Kruger has held a variety of management roles. Most recently, he served as area sales manager – Hanson Pipe & Precast, South Texas. As VP of sales, Kruger will oversee sales for Hanson’s 40 U.S. Pipe & Precast manufacturing facilities. Kruger graduated from the Colorado State School of Business.

“With his proven record of growing Hanson’s pipe and precast sales in one of our largest regions, Dustin was the ideal candidate to fill the vacant VP position,” said Szwejbka, senior vice president of Hanson Pipe & Precast. “His strong leadership and management experience in both sales and production will be a huge asset in serving our customers’ needs.”
