Kitagawa North-Tech Hires Senior Manager of Sales

Shawn Luschei

Kitagawa North-Tech, Inc. has announced that Shawn Luschei has rejoined the company in the capacity of Senior Manager of Sales for North America. Luschei has over 23 years of workholding industry experience and will be responsible for managing regional sales managers, supporting OEMs and channel partners and further developing the engineered rotational and prismatic workholding business for the company.

Luschei began his career in workholding with Kitagawa North-Tech in 1994, at the present corporate and manufacturing facility located in Schaumburg, IL. He joined the company as an inside sales representative and was then promoted to various sales management positions through his 17-year tenure at the company. In 2011, Luschei left Kitagawa North-Tech to launch Toolmex's new workholding and power chucks division and spent five years there in that capacity.

In his new role at Kitagawa North-Tech, Luschei's primary focus will be to support the custom engineered solutions business sales efforts. In addition, he will work with regional sales management and channel partners and further refine the inside engineered sales group at the company.

Kitagawa North-Tech's engineered workholding solutions capability is managed by its productivity (P) team. The P Team consists of an in-house applications engineering team committed to developing custom workholding for turning and prismatic applications. In addition to designing and engineering custom solutions, Kitagawa North-Tech utilizes its in-house design, manufacturing, inspection and testing facility to manufacturer, modify and test components and workholding systems for customers.

Working out of the Schaumburg, IL, location, Luschei will be reporting to Kevin Bennett, VP of Sales and Marketing. Bennett said, "We are excited to have Shawn back because he has extensive workholding industry expertise and knowledge and he will be a great asset to our sales management team. This demonstrates our commitment to customers that we recruit only quality talent to help us in our quest to deliver to them the best standard chucks, advanced and engineered workholding products and services available."
