Bourn & Koch recently hired Rob Swiss as the company’s national sales manager for gear manufacturing machinery. Mr. Swiss will be responsible for the sales and support of all gear manufacturing equipment, including the company’s horizontal gear hobbers, gear shapers, and in-stock and custom-remanufactured gear machinery.

Drawn to the history of gear manufacturing at the company, Mr. Swiss looks forward to supporting the existing customer base and also to growing the gear manufacturing business. “Everything built at Bourn & Koch today is an improvement on the time-tested legacy gear manufacturing designs,” he says. “The company’s in-house machining capabilities and precision assembly crew mean that every piece of gear machinery built here is well-crafted and designed to last. I’m happy to join this team in supporting customers and helping Bourn & Koch expand into new gear manufacturing markets.”

Mr. Swiss brings 20 years of experience in the gear industry with his most recent post having been at Gleason Corp., where he served as regional sales manager and engineering supervisor.
