Dwight Calkins has returned to Pacamor Kubar Bearings (PKB) engineering department. After holding several positions at PKB, including QC engineer and operations manager, he rejoins the PKB team to help develop and launch several strategic new products for the American-owned and -operated ball bearing manufacturer.
"We're pleased to have Dwight back with us at PKB," says Ed Osta, executive vice president. "Dwight's experience and knowledge of bearing design and production processes will enable us to develop new products and expand our current product offering."
Calkins most recently served as a senior technology engineer for General Electric, in Schenectady, NY, which manufactures turbines and generators. When asked about returning to PKB, Calkins says, "I learned a great deal from GE and am very appreciative for the opportunity, but I missed the dynamic environment and camaraderie of the PKB team."
