Mazak Optonics Corp. (Elgin, Illinois) has promoted Al Bohlen to president of North American operations. He has been vice president and general manager since 2013. Tomohisa Yamazaki, president and CEO of Yamazaki Mazak, made the appointment to better position Mazak Optonics for future growth and to continue the momentum of the last few years.

The launch of Mazak’s new Direct Diode laser technology and laser machine manufacturing operations at its Florence, Kentucky, campus makes it an important time for Mazak, the company says. Mr. Bohlen’s depth of technical experience should help strengthen the company’s position in this evolving market.

“Al has done an excellent job of leading our growth in laser machine sales and been a strong advocate of the future advancement of laser technology within Yamazaki Mazak Corporation,” says Brian Papke, board member of Mazak Optonics.

Prior to becoming vice president and general manager, Mr. Bohlen was the national sales manager at Mazak Optonics. He has extensive industry experience with major fabrication equipment manufacturers, having worked in a variety of technical and sales roles since 1986.
