Helios Gear Products, LLC (South Elgin, IL) announced that Dennis Hillary has taken the new leadership position as their senior service engineer for the technical service group. In response to growing demand for gear machine tool solutions, this team’s size has doubled over the past two years. Consequently, he now provides team leadership and mentorship in addition to continued technical service for their gear manufacturing customers.
Hillary began his career as a tool maker for a small manufacturer in the Rockford, IL, area. To grow his career, he moved to Ingersoll Machine Tools after a few years to take a position as a machine assembler. His 15 years of experience with them grew to include general machine building, troubleshooting, and technical service. Before joining Koepfer America (now Helios Gear Products) in 1998, as a dedicated service engineer he worked for a small machine tool rebuilder and retrofitter in the 1990s, honing his experience and acumen for mechanical machine tool work. As the company evolved their systems, including introducing KFS series gear tool sharpening machines in 1999, he became a critical member of the technical team.
“Our company’s accolades for gear manufacturing machine tool solutions simply would not be, without Dennis’s ongoing mechanical leadership,” said Adam Gimpert, the company’s business manager.
