Within a couple of years, Wayne’s oldest son Bill and son-in-law Darcey Elmore joined the firm and helped to expand the business into Illinois, Ohio, and Tennessee. In the early 1990’s, CEP Inc. expanded again as Wayne begin eyeing retirement, adding his other son, Kurt Kroemer, and son-in-law, Gary Coval.
In 2015, the partners began preparations to take CEP Sales into the future with a 3rd generation of salesmen. As Bill Kroemer and Darcey Elmore retired, CEP Sales brought on 5 new salesmen (Case Roberts in 2015, Josh Valentine and Bruno Cosentino in 2017, Cory Hernandez in 2019, and Zach Schroeder in 2020) to transition the company into the next generation and continue CEP’s history of outstanding sales and service our customers.
CEP Sales specializes in all types of custom metal parts - including castings, forgings, springs, and machined components, as well as a full line of industrial product identification and membrane switches. Our goal is to help customers find the optimal manufacturing process and supplier for their custom engineered parts.
