Arthur Steadman – Manufacturers Representative

As the saying goes, “once a teacher, always a teacher.” Years ago, I taught & coached at the high school & junior college levels. Only difference from then to now is that my students are much “older” and working in businesses.  After forty years selling packaging products & twenty-five as a Mfr’s Rep, I decided it was time to work for a company that embraces and incorporates a kind and gentle stewardship for Mother Earth. Box Latch™ Products made by Eco Latch Systems, LLC offers a wealth of opportunities that fulfill this objective.

Box Latch - Team member Philip M. Southam – Australian Associate and Sales Representative

Philip M. Southam – Australian Associate and Sales Representative

Phil Southam is a retired CPA and former Australian Army Officer. He discovered Box Latch ™ Products while looking for a temporary box closure system for his valuable, portable CSXT N-Scale model railway modules. He found the solution in a Box Latch™ to close the flaps and a Corner Clip & Stack to hold them down and open. His passion for the products and their benefits resulted in a Skype-based friendship with Jack and Jim which, coupled with 45 years of experience developing extensive contacts in Australia, led to this position. Like Australia as a country, Phil has a commitment to reuse before recycling, as it makes both economic and environmental sense.
