We’re pleased to announce a restructuring in conjunction with our company name change, which took affect earlier this year.
In the restructuring, Vice President Kenji Miyasako was promoted to executive vice president. Ben F. McGuire was promoted from North American sales manager to vice president of sales, and Brad Stinson was promoted from service engineer to assistant service manager.
As executive vice president, Kenji oversees the daily operations of sales, service, and business administration for Amada Press System America. He also has additional responsibilities for the Amada Press System group. In August 2016, Kenji became vice president of ORIIMEC (which changed its name to Amada Orii in 2018) and has worked for our home company for more than 30 years.
As vice president of sales, Ben oversees sales of all of Amada Press System’s product lines, including Amada stamping presses, ORII press automation equipment and MEC spring machines. He joined our company in December 2018 with more than 30 years in the machine tool and stamping industry in both service and sales.
As assistant service manager, Brad is responsible for the coordination of on-site service work for stamping presses and press room automation equipment like coil material processing systems. He joined ORIIMEC in December 2017 with nearly 20 years of experience in industrial service and maintenance.
The restructuring is an exciting development in step with the Amada Press System slogan – growing together with our customers – and ensures we’ll continue to be able to meet and exceed our customers’ needs and expectations.
The name change, which took effect February 1, allows us to leverage the considerable brand equity the Amada name has in its other markets. And it better represents the full “system” nature of our press business, including coil handling equipment and press-to-press transfer robots, enabling us to be a true “single-source supplier.” It is also in line with our parent company’s current name – Amada Press System Co. Ltd. – and will help reduce confusion.
