Bristol PA-based Volkmann, Inc., manufacturer of high quality pneumatic vacuum conveyors and unloading equipment for the food, pharmaceutical, chemical and additive manufacture industries, is delighted to announce the hiring of Rafael Navarro to fill the newly created position of sales manager. Volkmann’s increased growth in all channels, but most recently as a result of the addition of its system for additive manufacturing, has created the need for additional managerial talent to further improve customer support.

Navarro is an accomplished sales leader with considerable expertise in systems for pharmaceutical processing and packaging. He most recently served in sales management at Schubert Packaging and Bosch Packaging Technology, both in Philadelphia. Prior to that he was with L.B. Bohle GmbH.

“Rafael has shown himself to be an effective strategist who leverages true passion and an unwavering commitment to excellence which is core to our mission here at Volkmann,” noted company president, Nick Hayes. “We are determined that we will maintain our good reputation and service levels as we continue to grow the business of providing the very best vacuum conveyor systems. Having the right leadership in place is critical to this goal.”
