NORTH KINGSTOWN, R.I. — Supfina Machine Company, Inc., one of the world’s leading manufacturers of surface-finishing systems and equipment, has added two new members to its US sales team.  Robert “RJ” Fisher is now Regional Sales Manager, West, while Heike Kemmer has been named Regional Sales Manager, Northeast.
A former OEM Field Process Engineer for Supfina, Fisher returns to the company from Cummins Inc., a Columbus, Indiana-based maker of diesel and alternative-fuel engines and generators.  While at Cummins, Fisher served as a Manufacturing Engineer, implementing process improvements that cut costs while boosting product quality.  Fisher received a Bachelor of Science in Chemical Engineering from the University of Maine, Orono.
Kemmer joins Supfina from Würth Industrie Service GmbH & Co. KG of Bad Mergentheim, Germany, where she was Key Account Manager for Renewable Energies.  She completed an apprenticeship at Würth — a full-service supplier of mounting materials and fasteners for industrial production — while receiving a Bachelor of Arts degree in International Business-Industrial Sales and Marketing from Baden-Wuerttemberg Cooperative State University.  A German native, Kemmer is also fluent in English and French.
“I am pleased to welcome RJ and Heike to the Supfina team,” said Andrew Corsini, President and CEO of Supfina Machine Company, Inc.  “Their addition is especially important as we continue to expand our extensive portfolio of surface-finishing systems, which — with our new Spiro F5 and Spiro F7 machines — now includes fine grinding.”
With locations in the United States, Germany, and China, Supfina’s product lineup includes machinery and devices for superfinishing as well as flat-surface machining, double-disk grinding, and fine grinding.
