Slant/Fin Corp. has hired Davenport Associates to represent its products in New England. Wallingford, Conn.-based Davenport Associates will grow to more than 17 team members covering Massachusetts, Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Rhode Island and Connecticut.

 Along with Jim Harding, regional sales manager for Slant/Fin, and Tom Broadway, vice president of sales for Davenport, the transition from Slant/Fin’s current factory-direct team to Davenport Associates will be seamless, the company said.
