Craig Robinson has been appointed to the recently created role of National Industry Sector Manager – Mining.
"Craig's appointment signals a new direction of engineering expertise for NORD Drivesystems here in Australia, “ said Mark Alexander, Director of NORD Drivesystems AU
"Craig has considerable application knowledge as well as considerable project management experience. NORD Drivesystems AU plans to capitalise on his knowledge with their new heavy Industrial Gearing Range, which is exclusively manufactured in Germany by Getriebebau NORD GmbH & Co," said Alexander.
Robinson will be responsible for establishing this new range in Australia and New Zealand, as well as assisting Getriebebau NORD GmbH & Co to support the technical needs for their Australian subsidiary, NORD Drivesystems AU.
Robinson brings to NORD Drivesystems AU over 26 years of experience in the mechanical power transmission industry. Starting in 1986 with Euro-trans under the guidance of Gus Schluter, Robinson specialised in planetary gearing and industrial coupling systems.
From this beginning which spanned eight years, he then moved on to gain more experience within the helical gearing sector working for other gearing industry manufacturers.
Robinson describes his work philosophy as: “Credibility via technical ability – know your product and understand the application. Make it clear to the client on what is proposed. Offer the best solution at the fairest price. Always be fair – treat the client as your partner. The solution must be a win-win situation for both parties.”
