Conveyor system and component manufacturer Superior Industries has appointed Matt Voigt as its new conveying equipment application engineering specialist. Voigt will help Superior’s existing territory managers develop material handing solutions for their customers in North America and around the world.
“Matt has some very impressive experience within the industries Superior serves,” said Bob Domnick, the Superior Industries’ vice president of sales, marketing, and engineering, in a press statement. “He fits our team well and will help provide our customers with true solutions for their specific applications.”
A graduate of the University of Wisconsin – Platteville, Voigt graduated with a degree in mechanical engineering in 2003. During college, he began working at Metso for the company’s line of Barmac Vertical Shaft Impact (VSI) crushers. While responsible for design and research and development, Voigt’s job took him to New Zealand for a year before returning to the United States to work in Barmac’s product and technical support division. During eight years for the company, he also spent time designing crushing and screening plants, managing mobile solution’s sales, and managing distributor partners in the Southeast United States.
After a year away, Voigt returns to the industry in his new position at Superior Industries. He and his wife live in Minneapolis and are expecting their first child early next year.
“I wanted to come and work for an OEM with a good reputation in the industry,” he said. “Everywhere I went, people spoke very highly of Superior, its quality and its people.”
