Abrasive waterjet manufacturer OMAX Corp., Kent. Wash., has expanded its sales force to include two new regional managers: Dustin Grim and John Leszczyna. Grim is responsible for Indiana and southern Illinois, and Leszczyna handles Alabama, Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, and parts of Tennessee.
Both manage the direct sales activities of the company's OMAX JetMachining® centers, MAXIEM® JetCutting centers, and accessories within their respective territories and are working to expand the company's distribution network.
Grim worked previously as an administrator for Trading Place LLC/Shipshewana Auction Inc. in Indiana and also owned and operated his own independent food distribution company. He worked at OMAX from 2006 to 2009 as regional sales manager for Michigan and Ontario.
Leszczyna began his career as a journeyman tool- and diemaker and machinist and became a process engineer and toolroom supervisor before holding sales, service, and management positions at various companies in the manufacturing productivity industry.
