Mahr Inc. closed a year of continued expansion in 2019—including new hires, opening customer centers across the United States, and introducing a number of innovative products—enabling its customers to improve manufacturing quality with faster throughput and higher accuracy for the broadest range of applications. Additionally, The Rhode Island Manufacturers Association has chosen Mahr as the winner of its annual award which recognizes companies that have been instrumental in the growth and success of manufacturing in Rhode Island.
The company added 22 new employees in 2019 throughout its operations, sales, finance and engineering departments, including the appointment of Bryan Orr as vice president of sales for the Americas. Orr has more than 30 years of experience in industrial sales management, and has worked in management roles for companies including Rockwell Automation, Schneider Electric and Emerson. He joins Mahr after most recently serving as regional manager for Automatic Systems, an industry leading provider of system integration. Brett Green, former vice president of sales for the Americas, will be rejoining his family in England and transitioning to the role of vice president sales EMEA.
“I am excited to build upon the achievements of 2019 and lead Mahr to continued success in 2020,” said Orr. “We are proud to be the partner of choice for our customers seeking to streamline manufacturing operations as well as enhance quality assurance practices.”
The company also continued its expansion across the United States, celebrating the grand opening of its new Southeast Regional Customer Center in Greenville, SC in early June, followed by the grand opening of its new Midwest Regional Customer Center in the Detroit area in Wixom, MI in July of 2019.
Product highlights in 2019 include the MarSurf GD Series, MarSurf VD Series, Precimar SM 60 Length Measurement System, Precimar ICM 100 Expansion and High-Resolution Digital Indicators.
