Bourn & Koch announce the addition of Rob Swiss to their team as National Sales Manager for Gear Manufacturing Machinery

Bourn & Koch Inc. of Rockford, IL, is pleased to report that Rob Swiss has joined the company as the National Sales Manager for Gear Manufacturing Machinery. Swiss will be responsible for the sales and support of all gear manufacturing equipment for Bourn & Koch. This includes the new gear machinery lines of Bourn & Koch brand horizontal gear hobbers, Bourn & Koch and Fellows gear shaper brands, as well as all in-stock and custom remanufactured gear manufacturing machinery. Swiss will also assist with the design and development of new gear manufacturing machinery for Bourn & Koch.

Drawn to the history of gear manufacturing at Bourn & Koch, Swiss looks forward to supporting the existing customer base and growing the gear manufacturing business. Bourn & Koch acquired the Fellows line of gear shapers in 2002 and the machine tool division of Barber-Colman back in 1985. Bourn & Koch continues to manufacture the Fellows 10-4 and 20-4 gear shapers today, re-engineering these classics as well as new shapers for modern gear manufacturing standards. Today’s Bourn & Koch brand horizontal gear hobbers and shapers were designed and developed with access to all that historical OEM documentation and expertise.

Swiss brings 20 years of experience in the gear industry with his most recent post at Gleason Corporation where he served as Regional Sales Manager and Engineering Supervisor. Swiss was educated in England where he completed a 4-year apprenticeship and gained a higher national certificate in mechanical engineering.
