Mahr Expands on 2019 Success

Mahr Inc. closed a year of continued expansion in 2019 which included new hires, the opening of customer centers across the United States, and the introduction of a number of innovative new products enabling its customers to improve manufacturing quality with faster throughput and higher accuracy across a range of applications. Additionally, The Rhode Island Manufacturers Association has chosen Mahr as the winner of its annual award which recognizes companies that have been instrumental in the growth and success of manufacturing in Rhode Island.

The company added 22 new employees in 2019 throughout its operations, sales, finance and engineering departments, including the appointment of Bryan Orr as Vice President of Sales for the Americas. Orr has more than 30 years of experience in industrial sales management, and has worked in management roles for companies including Rockwell Automation, Schneider Electric and Emerson. He joins Mahr after most recently serving as Regional Manager for Automatic Systems, an industry leading provider of system integration. Brett Green, former Vice President of Sales for the Americas, will be rejoining his family in England and transitioning to the role of Vice President Sales EMEA.

“I am excited to build upon the achievements of 2019 and lead Mahr to continued success in 2020,” said Orr. “We are proud to be the partner of choice for our customers seeking to streamline manufacturing operations as well as enhance quality assurance practices.”

The company also continued its expansion across the United States with the opening of a new Southeast Regional Customer Center in Greenville, South Carolina and a new Midwest Regional Customer Center in Wixom, Michigan.

New innovative product releases from Mahr in 2019 included:

MarSurf GD series measuring stations provide unprecedented levels of speed, flexibility and intelligent ease of use, allowing users to improve the manufacturing quality of workpieces with faster throughput and higher accuracy for the broadest range of applications. GD series systems enable profile and waviness evaluations to be carried out in addition to surface roughness evaluations.

Variable-drive MarSurf VD series enables roughness and contour measurements to be performed on the same machine. The operator can easily and quickly change between a high-precision roughness probe system or a highly dynamic contour probe system, depending on the measuring task.

The SM 60 incorporates a 25 mm sensitive contact and a fixed reference jaw with a 35 mm adjustment to obtain the full 60 mm measurement capacity.
