McKernin Joins Milan's Machining & Manufacturing as Gear Sales Director
July 15, 2020
Milan's Machining & Manufacturing Co Inc. welcomes Michael McKernin as the gear sales director. With 35 years in the gear industry, McKernin brings experience in all aspects of gear engineering, manufacturing and sales.
“We are really excited to have Mike on board,” said Marko Pecharich, president of Milan's Machining and Manufacturing. “His experience in the gear industry will open new opportunities and provide our company with additional insight into the gear industry.”
With a degree in manufacturing engineering technology from Bradley University, McKernin has been involved in all aspects of metalworking and manufacturing, with a strong emphasis on gear manufacturing. McKernin currently serves as the chairman of the Business Management Executive Committee (BMEC) for the American Gear Manufacturers Association (AGMA) — where he oversees the managerial and educational programs along with committee activity for AGMA members in manufacturing.
“I am really excited to work with the whole group at Milan’s. The opportunity to help with the growth and expansion of a forward-thinking gear company is a perfect fit for my skill set.” McKernin said. “Milan’s has been involved in gear manufacturing for decades and recently acquired Allied Gear to open the door for rapid expansion.”
With McKernin joining the team, Milan’s recently joined AGMA to further promote and capitalize on critical industry resources. As members of AGMA, they will work along side other gear manufacturers to promote growth and diversity in a global supply chain for the power transmission industry and will continue to be leaders and stewards for the future of manufacturing while sharing a robust set of capabilities for customers.
