AKE Safety Equipment Outside Sales Representative in Mankato, Minnesota



Founded in 1989, AKE Safety Equipment has evolved into a market-leading fire safety equipment manufacturing and sales company. We operate on a national scale, have grown 14X since 2010, and have become a household name in our target market.

‘‘Our customers know they can trust us with their lives and livelihoods and we’re proud to be part of that. We treasure their trust.’’ – Allen Kronebusch, Owner and Founder.


    You MUST be willing to travel to Rochester, MN for a face-to-face interview if selected, if you are unwilling to do this please DO NOT APPLY because there are no exceptions.


Attention: High-Achieving Professionals! Are you looking for a role in which you can earn unlimited income? On average, our Sales Representatives have earned $90,816 in commission annually. In 2022, our top performer earned $272,777 by embodying our core value of building lasting relationships, having superstar confidence, and most importantly, a passion for keeping people’s lives & livelihoods protected. In this entrepreneurial role, you will have the opportunity to sell a premium, clean agent fire extinguisher directly to farmers by traveling farm-to-farm within your protected territory. With an excellent commission structure and the flexibility to create your own schedule, your hard work and achievements will be reflected in your earnings.


  • Your income is based on a straight commission structure. Our salespeople prefer this because they understand that a safety net does not help them but instead slows them down. This position gives you the independence of a personal business without the risk of investing your own money. Therefore, if you perform well, you will be compensated handsomely.


  • Are extremely competitive - You always strive to win and are CONFIDENT in your abilities.

  • Have a connection to the Agricultural community - If you grew up on a farm, worked on a farm, or have done business with farmers on a regular basis.

  • Bring persistence and hard work to the job - You understand the key to good performance is continuous improvement, hard work, and a willingness to make small sacrifices to get the job done.

  • Are entrepreneurial - It is simply in their DNA to be independent, self-driven, self-motivated, and business-minded.

  • Are a cultural fit – As a Christian based company, every team member must be in line with our Core Values:

  • Just Get It Done- No excuses

  • Do Right- Success is compounded choices

  • Build Lasting Relationships- Follow the ‘Golden Rule’

  • Improve Obsessively- Never be satisfied

  • Be Thankful- Appreciate all of life, good or bad

  • Committed to helping others – Earn a living while being an integral part of something bigger than themselves.


    We do not just throw our salespeople out to the wolves and HOPE they do well. Instead, we give our salespeople the support they need to go out and meet their goals. At AKE Fire Safety Equipment, we understand that it is a team effort. We are here to coach and train you. Because of this, you can expect an encouraging environment that propels you toward success. We want you to succeed, but not at the cost of family, personal time, and health.


    Other companies may have lowered their recruitment standards to fill open positions, but we have made it tougher, because we are looking for the right people.  We have an exceptional culture, a strong supportive sales team to be a part of and are only accepting the best talent to join us.

    If you believe you have what we are looking for and our team is a good fit for you, take the time to COMPLETELY fill out our application. If WE believe you have what it takes, we will contact you for a phone interview.

    • After the Phone Interview, if we still believe you are a good fit for our team, you will be invited to a face-to-face personal interview with our company Founder, Allen Kronebusch, at our headquarters in Rochester, MN.
