Cougar Sales and Cougar Systems, Houston-based suppliers of water-control systems for commercial building applications, announced today that they will begin operating under Cougar USA, effective immediately.
President Mike Zacharias explained, “As our business expands, we want to align our corporate name and identity in the marketplace to accurately reflect our business direction. As we acquire a national presence, it is our mission to hold strong to the foundation that our company was built upon. We take pride in offering more than just high-quality commercial solutions. We assist our customers every step of the way to ensure their needs are met, their concerns are quickly addressed, and our customers always have competent support. I’m convinced that our level of service and quality in our products is what sets us apart from our competitors. We strive to be more than just an equipment provider; we want to be our customer’s most trusted resource.”
Cougar USA will operate under the same ownership, with the same qualified staff that customers have come to know and trust. Customers and employees alike are optimistic about the change. “Cougar USA combines the best parts of Cougar Sales and Cougar Systems, which allows us to streamline our business and expand our footprint nationally,” said Tim Zacharias, Chief Operating Officer.
Cougar Sales was founded in 2003 as a Manufacturer’s Rep Firm serving the Greater Houston area. Over the first five years, the company shifted from selling products to providing complete systems solutions. In 2010, Cougar Sales moved into a 14,000-sf facility with expanded production capabilities to support the Cougar Systems product lines. In 2016, the company was formally reorganized into Cougar Sales and Cougar Systems.
Moving forward, the companies will operate under Cougar USA and will adhere to the principles upon which they were founded while keeping a refined focus in a few areas where they will strive to be industry experts: as a Rep Firm, offering high-quality products and services to markets across South Texas including Houston, Austin, San Antonio, Corpus Christi/Victoria, and the Rio Grande Valley. And, as a manufacturing company, offering pre-engineered fabricated systems and UL-listed control panels.
