Mazak Optonics Corporation has announced that effective immediately Al Bohlen has been promoted to president of their North American operations.
Bohlen has been vice president and general manager since 2013. The appointment reflects Bohlen’s record of leadership and results achieved throughout his tenure at Mazak. He has been a key driver in elevating sales performance and increasing the market share of the company since his arrival in 2011.
Tomohisa Yamazaki, president and CEO of Yamazaki Mazak, made the appointment of Bohlen to president to better position Mazak Optonics for future growth and to continue the momentum of the last few years. The launch of Mazak’s new Direct Diode Laser technology and laser machine manufacturing operations at their Florence, Kentucky campus makes it an important time for Mazak.
Bohlen’s depth of technical experience should help strengthen Mazak’s position in this evolving market.
