Machine tool builder Okuma America Corporation says its recently formed Technology Group will enable increased emphasis on the THINC-OSP control, the formation of technology partnerships and the utilization of the Partners in THINC and Okuma Tech Center facilities. The ultimate end of the new personnel group is providing solutions to solve real problems faced by manufacturers.
Brian Sides moves into the role of Director of Technology, where he will apply his experience as a leader of the THINC control’s development team to focus on supporting THINC and partners in THINC initiatives.
Jeff Estes, director of Partners in THINC, will focus on identifying technology development needs, establishing strategic technology partnerships and further developing the technology centers in Houston and Chicago.
As supervisor of product specialists, Jim Endsley will manage the existing staff of specialists and increase focus on product-related education and technology information.
