J.R. Mills Appointed At New Allis-Chalmers Marine Diesel Division

John R. Mills has been appointed general manager of the newly created Marine Diesel Division, Allis-Chalmers Corp., Milwaukee, Wis. His most recent position has been that of general manager of the company's Compressor and Custom Pump Division.

Formation of the Marine Diesel Division is another step toward establishing Allis-Chalmers as a supplier of low-speed diesel engines for marine and stationary power applications, a company spokesman said.

The company is already building three 43,200-hp low-speed, crosshead diesels on a subcontract from Sulzer Bros., Inc., for installation on American President Lines containerships. This order is for the first low-speed diesels built in the United States since World War II.

Mr. Mills, a native of Chicago, joined Allis-Chalmers in 1970 and has held several management positions, including manager of special overseas projects in the Electrical Products Group and general manager of the Custom Pump Division.
