Manufacturer and solutions provider of fully automated centerless and other types of turn-key precision grinding systems, Glebar Company, has added two members to its sales team: Mark Kraus and Anthony Pickering.

CEO Adam Cook stated, "It is an exciting time at Glebar and things are moving quickly. We are closing in on our most successful year ever but are not sitting back. We have no doubt that Mark and Anthony will be valued solutions-based resources for our existing and future customers alike."

Mark Kraus is the new Business Development Executive for Glebar's medical business. Kraus joined Glebar to focus on the creation of long-term value for Glebar and its customers, developing new markets and cultivating new relationships in the medical industry. Based in the Twin Cities of Minnesota, Kraus has over 25 years of leadership experience in medical device product and business development, operations, quality assurance, supply chain, customer service and general management positions. He has led several companies through periods of product expansion and growth. Kraus served as vice president of operations for Neometrics, which was recently acquired by Heraeus Medical Components in 2015, a privately held OEM guidewire design and manufacturing company. He was also vice president of operations for r4 Vascular, and served as president of the Vascular Access and Delivery Systems business unit for Enpath Medical prior to being acquired by Greatbatch Medical. "Kraus has specific responsibility for medical opportunities in the Minnesota and Wisconsin market, but will be an integral part of driving our medical business development efforts worldwide," said a company spokesperson. Kraus has a bachelor's degree in mechanical engineering from the University of Minnesota.

Vice President of Sales Mark Bannayan commented, "Adding someone like Mark makes complete sense, since medical is one of our largest and growing markets. He is clearly qualified and prepared to take Glebar to the next level."

Based in Michigan, Anthony Pickering is Glebar's new Regional Sales Manager for the Midwest. Anthony brings experience in manufacturing technology and machine solution sales. "Anthony also brings a proven track record and a high level of industry knowledge that will serve Glebar's customer base very well," said the spokesperson. He has over 20 years of CNC machining experience in multiple roles ranging from manufacturing engineer to sales. "His engineering background, expertise in production machining and automation and component analysis allow for a proactive consultative sales approach that leads to process improvement and true solutions for his customers," said the spokesperson.

"We are thrilled to have these two professionals be part of the Glebar family. We strive to keep our customers at the forefront of everything we do, this bolsters that effort," added Cook.
