Twin Disc Forms New Task Force To Market Marine Transmissions
Twin Disc, Incorporated of Racine, Wis., has announced the formation of a task force to market the MGN-Z line of marine transmissions throughout North America.
This line of marine products, for diesel engines rated 634 to 3,671 kw (850 to 4,850 hp), is manufactured by Twin Disc's partially owned affiliate, Niigata Converter Company Limited (NICO) of Japan.
Heading this marketing group is James H. Haertel, manager of marine sales, assisted by Richard F. Graff, applications engineer, and Takero Hayashi, a NICO engineer assigned to Twin Disc.
Mr. Haertel, a veteran Twin Disc executive, was former manager of OEM engine equipment sales and a district sales manager in the former Newark, N.J., office.
Mr. Graff began his Twin Disc career in 1975. His experience includes application engineering in marine products as well as industrial clutches, hydraulic and universal joint products.
Mr. Hayashi has been employed as an engineer at NICO since 1962. He has had vast experience in the design and application of NICO marine transmissions.
The Twin Disc Marketing Group will work out of the company's main office in Racine, and will have responsibility for sales, application, and service of NICO MGN-Z Series marine transmissions.
Literature on the NICO MGN-Z series of marine transmissions is available by writing to James H.
Haertel, Twin Disc, Incorporated, Dept. MR, 1328 Racine Street, Racine, Wis. 53403.
