Cosen Band Saws, a leading bandsaw manufacturer and developer of MechaLogix, announced Al Warpinski has taken the position of regional manager of Cosen’s Midwest region, covering Illinois, Wisconsin, Minnesota, and the Dakotas.
Warpinski has worked in the manufacturing industry since he graduated from Eastern Illinois University with a bachelor’s degree in journalism in 2013. His first job was an inside sales role with Perfection Servo Hydraulics in Batavia Illinois, which focused on repairing hydraulic components and industrial electronics. After a few years Warpinski took an area sales manager position with SK Hand Tool in Sycamore Illinois. More recently, he was the southwest Chicago account manager for DGI Supply.
“While working at DGI Supply, I spent a majority of my time identifying and closing on Bandsaw Machines,” says Warpinski. “Often times when end-users were narrowing down their machine search, Cosen Band Saws were almost always in the mix.
“The feedback I received from co-workers and customers on Cosen was extremely positive, and the message was always the same – Cosen makes a first-class bandsaw machine at a great price point.”
Warpinski believes Cosen is at an interesting point in its history and primed to take a big step forward over the next few years. He welcomes the opportunity Cosen has provided to make his mark on the industry and grow with the company.
“Another exciting aspect for me is the upper Midwest territory I’ll be taking over,” Warpinski adds. “There is huge potential for growth throughout, Illinois, Wisconsin and Minnesota and I look forward to growing the Cosen brand in those states.”
