REP Corporation Announces New Roles

(l-r) Tim Graham and Jim Wirtz

REP Corporation has announced that company President Tim Graham will assume a new role effective January 1, 2019. Graham will become the Director of Special Projects, while Jim Wirtz, After Sales Director for North America, will assume the role of president. Graham intends to remain with the company for the near term, before taking retirement in 2019.

Graham attended Hope College and the University of Michigan, where he achieved his degree in engineering. Graham began his career in technical sales with REP in 1979. He became VP in 2005 and president shortly afterwards.

Working with former presidents Jim Jennett and Ron Dagar, Graham helped to steadily build the REP install base of machines in the North American market, which today totals over 3,000. He commented, "I have seen REP develop an amazing line of machines over the years, starting with the G3. I was with the company when we made a major breakout on G6 injection presses, the first in the industry with microprocessor closed loop control."

Graham has taken an active role in the industry, participating for many years in local rubber group functions and as a founding member of the Association for Rubber Products Manufacturers.

Wirtz said, "Tim's knowledge and especially his personal relationships with our customers are invaluable assets to REP. I look forward to working with him in the new role."

REP Corporation is the North American subsidiary of REP International, based in Lyon, France.
