To further enhance relationships within its OEM and machine tool dealer network, Rego-Fix USA (Whitestown, Indiana) has appointed Bryan Bannister as the company’s new OEM manager. Based in the Milwaukee area, he will not only oversee all such business partnerships throughout North America, but will also support, assist and collaborate with Rego-Fix global OEM team members as needed.

According to William Obras, general manager – Americas at Rego-Fix, Bannister brings a rare combination of traditional manufacturing experience and a solid business education to his new position. “It is just this type of background that convinced us that Bryan was a perfect fit for the OEM manager position and the Rego-Fix team,” Obras says.

Bannister is said to come to Rego-Fix with extensive manufacturing industry experience, including seven years at Seco Tools LLC (Troy, Michigan) as a technical sales engineer and OEM technical specialist overseeing relationships at Seco’s OEM and Machine Tool Dealer network. Prior to that, he was a gear manufacturing engineer for Caterpillar Inc. (Deerfield, Illinois) and held positions at GE Energy (Boston, Massachusetts) and Komatsu America Corp. (Chicago, Illinois)

Bannister started his career as a journeyman toolmaker, which provided him with a solid foundation in all aspects of machining processes and toolholding.
