United Grinding North America names Markus Stolmar president and CEO

Markus Stolmar has been elected as the new president and CEO by the board of directors for United Grinding North America Inc.

Stolmar was selected for this position after serving nearly 20 years in various leadership capacities within the company, starting as the product manager for the optical inspection equipment for Walter, then based in Fredericksburg, Virginia. Stolmar relocated to the new North American headquarters in Miamisburg, Ohio, in 2016 as vice president of tool division sales for the Walter and Ewag brands before being appointed as executive vice president in charge of customer care, finance, human resources and operations in 2019.

Stolmar’s appointment to this role follows several years of rapid growth for the Ohio-based company that’s home to nearly 200 employees.

“I have always felt proud to work for United Grinding. It is an incredible honor for me to lead and serve this great company of ours. United Grinding North America has a beautiful new home [Stolmar speaks of the new 110,000-sq.-ft. facility opened in 2017] and has grown considerably thanks to new and existing customers, talented employees, and our intense focus on helping our customers overcome some of their greatest manufacturing challenges,” Stolmar said of his new role within the company.
