French Rehires Robert Pavlik As Oilseed Sales Engineer

French Oil Mill Machinery Company is pleased to announce the rehiring of Robert Pavlik, who has joined the Oilseed Group as Oilseed Sales Engineer.

Bob works under the supervision of our President, Jason McDaniel, and with veteran Sales Engineer, Jim King, to partner with new and existing customers in both domestic and international markets to develop processing methods and to supply the appropriate oilseed preparation equipment including flaking mills, cracking mills, cooker/conditioners, oil extraction screw presses and other related equipment needed to optimize each customer’s unique processing methods.

Bob brings over 30 years of capital equipment sales and process development experience to this position, including almost 10 years of French oilseed equipment sales from 1985 through 1994.  He was most recently employed by Bartell Machinery Systems LLC, in Rome, New York, where he managed key account locations in the United States, Europe, Russia, India and Asia.  This background has helped Bob to make an easy transition into his current position with French.
