Cover 2 Sales was founded by Steve Cooper in October 2003. Back then the electronics industry was still trying to recover from the market crash of 2001. Despite an inhospitable market Steve’s knowledge, experience, determination and drive enabled Cover 2 Sales to grow and succeed. In 2013, Naudain Associates Southern joined forces with Cover 2 Sales, strengthening our interconnect, passive and electro-mechanical (IP&E) offerings with solutions for human-machine interface (HMI), power conversion, interconnect and thermal management. Centrally headquartered in Baltimore, MD, Cover 2 Sales is convenient to the I-95 and I-270 corridors, Northern Virginia, the BWI technology district and all other parts of our territory. We are one of a very few number of representative firms with remote sales resources dedicated to central and southern Virginia. We are well serviced by Baltimore/Washington International (MD), Reagan National (DC) and Dulles International (VA) airports. Cover 2 Sales’ management has earned the prestigious Certified Professional Manufacturers’ Representative (CPMR) accreditation by the Manufacturers’ Representatives Educational Research Foundation (MRERF).
