Dustin Tracey, VP of Business Development is pleased to announce the appointment of Dan Swenson to the joint responsibilities of “Applications and Training Support Services”, as well as “Manager of Electrical Services”.
Dan brings a wealth of knowledge and experience in both of these critical areas of customer support, having had exposure to the machine shop and manufacturing environment from a very early age. As a Journeyman Machinist he is highly competent in process analysis of component manufacturing, including machining operations, orders of operation, automation, workpiece fixturing, and tooling. He can prepare part programs, and do part run-offs. He will be called upon often in the machine commissioning phase of new machine installations in order to orient operators to machine functions, and even to provide where necessary in-depth instruction for programming, setting up, and manufacturing parts.
In his role as “Manager of Electrical Services” he will assist Jerry Delaharpe, BFG’s General Manager of Machine Tool Services, in all matters of electrical and electronic troubleshooting and repair, including installation of mechanical and control options. He is very experienced in Fanuc controls and automation, and has recently undergone training in Siemens controls.
Dan and his wife, Sam, live in Beaumont, AB with their 4 month old son, Eric, and two dogs! Dan enjoys hunting and fishing, and most importantly fixing machines! We welcome him to the new BFG team.
