Collins has been with Federal for eight years, starting in the engineering group and working the last five years as sales engineer responsible for filling systems sales. In the role of sales and marketing manager, Collins is responsible for all sales as well as development and implementation of marketing programs and practices. He will work with and be responsible for the existing distributor base. In addition, Collins will further develop and evaluate Federal’s distribution methods.
Working with division management and engineering, Collins will strategize and develop new products for the marketplace, while targeting new markets for Federal’s current line of gravity and net-weight filling systems.
