VMAC has appointed Rick Duifhuis as its OEM Division manager. In his new role he will oversee the company’s OEM business, managing and advancing partnerships by developing application solutions for the industrial engine market, using its direct-drive and belt-drive rotary screw air compressor technology.
“With 15 years of experience at VMAC in a number of roles and functions, Rick is perfectly suited to ensure VMAC is providing value through the right products and support to our equipment manufacturers as OEM Division Manager,” said Tod Gilbert, VMAC president. “Rick has already proven his ability to develop innovative solutions with our partner OEMs and we are excited about the opportunities in front of us.”
He joined the company in 2005 and has been working exclusively with VMAC’s OEM partners for the past three years.
“I am very pleased to be leading VMAC’s OEM division and growing our relationships in North America and Europe,” said Duifhuis. “This appointment recognizes the success of our OEM program and our ongoing commitment to innovative solutions for our industrial application clients.”
VMAC air compressors are used by OEMs across the globe, with many partnerships in North America and Europe, including Cat, Cummins, John Deere and Lincoln Electric (see the March 2019 issue of Diesel Progress).
