Box 1 • Fort Wayne, IN 46801 • 260-426-7495 • Fax: 260-422-1523 email: • M A N U F A C T U R I N G THE FAMILY-OWNED DEISTER MACHINE COMPANY ALIGNS ITSELF FOR LONG-TERM GROWTH AND BUILDS UPON ITS LEGACY WITH THE NEXT GENERATIONS OF LEADERSHIP. A LEGACY OF Representing the fourth generation of Deister leadership, Richard (Rich) M. Deister has recently been promoted to Executive Vice President of the company. Currently marking 30 years of company service, Rich began his career with Deister by learning the business from the ground up. Following his graduation from Purdue University in 1987, he began as an assembler in the company's machine shop. A few years later, he took to the road as a service technician where he was hands-on in working with producers to install and fine tune each custom-manufactured screen and feeder for use in a variety of applications. In 1990, Rich became the company's service manager; and in 2002, he was named Director of Customer Relations, Parts and Service, ascending to vice president of that department in 2007. Also, that same year, he joined the company's executive board of directors. Rich is a member of the National Stone, Sand and Gravel Association and is the immediate past chair of the Manufacturing and Services Division. The company is proud to report that its family tradition will continue into the fifth generation of leadership. Max Deister (Rich's son) has recently joined the company as a full-time member. Like his father, he graduated from Purdue University, and had interned with the company since 2012. " Our tradition of quality and customer satisfaction began with my great grandfather, Emil Deister, who founded the company in 1912. Each generation of Deister leadership continues to strengthen our performance history and our dedication to high standards. Our long-term customer relationships, which we have developed over years of support, consultation and service, have resulted in ongoing improvements and innovation in the design, engineering and customization of Deister screening, scalping and feeding equipment," says Rich Deister M A N U F A C T U R I N G M A N U F A C T U R I N G
