Simmons Machine Tool Corp. announced on April 8 that it has promoted Brandon Teal to Product Manager, Wheel Truing/Re-profiling.
Teal has been with the Albany, NY-based maintenance and production company for 13 years, and started there as a service technician. His technical know-how “proved valuable when he transitioned to machine sales associate and later sales engineer,” the company said.
In his new role as Product Manager, Teal will continue to lead sales efforts for the Simmons wheel truing (Stanray TN-84C and M-Series) and Hegenscheidt re-profiling (U2000-150/400 and HP-165) product lines.
Teal, a member of Locomotive Maintenance Officers Association’s (LMOA) Facilities, Material and Support Committee, will also be involved with coordinating product specifications with the engineering, sales and marketing departments, as well as developing strategies for the launch of the Stanray M-Series.
