Trublowski will oversee service of all the company’s gear manufacturing tools in North America, including its hobbing, chamfer/deburring, and Scudding machines.

“We are excited to welcome Bart back to Star SU. His prior position as a machine tool project engineer with our company, along with his experience in project management, process improvement and estimating will be invaluable in this new role,” said Andreas Blind, president at Star SU.

Trublowski will be responsible for machine tool management services aimed at helping companies achieve efficiencies and uptime. These include analyzing processes and providing recommendations for cutting tool selection and cycle time reduction; conducting maintenance and operation training; diagnosing and repairing machines; troubleshooting software issues; and recommending part repair and replacement schedules.

Along with this experience, he brings skills in quality and statistical process control, lean manufacturing, Six Sigma and Kaizen to his new position.

Trublowski holds multiple degrees, including an Associate in Applied Science in engineering technology from Triton College, a Bachelor of Science in industrial management and technology from Northern Illinois University and a Master of Business Administration from Concordia University Chicago.
