Nordson EDI has appointed Kevin L. Bahr to the position of aftermarket and customer service manager, it was announced by Godfrey M. Sandham, vice president and general manager.
Mr. Bahr will oversee customer service for both new and remanufactured dies and will be responsible for furthering the growth of the company’s extensive global aftermarket business, which provides services for customers’ existing dies. Aftermarket services include remanufacturing or “rework” of extrusion dies built by Nordson EDI or other suppliers, custom engineering of die components, and stocking of a wide range of spare parts. The Aftermarket group focuses on maximizing the value that die users can obtain from their assets by reducing production downtime during rework and enhancing die performance.
“In this new position, Kevin will apply his extensive knowledge of Nordson EDI’s engineering and manufacturing processes and his deep experience serving aftermarket customers,” says Mr. Sandham. “By combining our aftermarket and customer service functions and placing them under Kevin’s supervision, we are taking another step forward in our mission to enhance the value that our customers can derive from their extrusion processes.”
Kevin L. Bahr joined Nordson EDI in 1979, starting out on the shop floor and progressing through a wide range of positions in die manufacture before being promoted to a position in rework engineering in 1998. He has spent the last three years in charge of the aftermarket engineering department.
He holds an associate degree in mechanical design from Chippewa Valley Technical College, Eau Claire, Wisconsin.
