Pneumatech, a manufacturer in the compressed air system engineering market, announced the promotion of Joseph Fresch to vice president of Pneumatech North America. Fresch, who joined Pneumatech in 1991, is responsible for sales, technical service and customer service. He previously has served in a variety of roles at Pneumatech, including regional sales manager and most recently as national sales manager.
“Joe brings a tremendous wealth of product knowledge and leadership experience to his new position, as well as his already-strong working relationships with Pneumatech customers and distributors,” says Ellen Steck, president. “Pneumatech’s legacy runs deep in his family, and Joe is eager to continue growing Pneumatech and provide world-class technical and customer service to our customers in North America.”
Fresch’s father, Vince Fresch, and his uncle, Ray Rossi, purchased the company, based in Kenosha, Wis., in 1980. Pneumatech expanded several product lines and extended its presence across North America and into international markets such as China before Atlas Copco acquired the company in October 2005.
