Manager, Truck Bed Liner Division, and Eastern U.S. Region Sales
Josh De Laune is Manager of the Truck Bed Liner Division for Accella Bullet Liner. Based out of the company’s satellite operation in Marietta, GA, he has overseen corporate sales initiatives for the brand since 2010, and also directs regional business development for the Eastern U.S. region. Josh gained experience from a young age while exposed to his father Scooter De Laune’s protective coatings business. After working in production to gain product knowledge, and being trained on the industry’s latest equipment and technology, he was assigned to expand and sell product for, what was at that time, the newest addition to the Burtin Polymer Laboratories’ family, Bullet Liner Protective Coatings. In this capacity, he helped to play a pivotal role in growing and developing the dealer program and sales infrastructure for the Bullet Liner brand, until it was acquired by Accella Performance Materials in 2015. Prior to his tenure in the spray-on bed liner market, Josh served in the U.S. Navy as a Master-at-Arms (Military Police), working in the Continental U.S. and serving as an Intelligence Liaison for an Army battalion in Southern Iraq, as part of Operation Iraqi Freedom.
