Announcing the Promotion of Pete Koegel
Koegel will lead the Custom Fabrication division as the new Sales Manager.
R-V Industries is pleased to announce the promotion of Pete Koegel to Market Sales Manager for its Custom Fabrication & Machining division. Pete’s background as welding engineer, combined with his passion to find innovative and cost-effective manufacturing solutions will be a valuable combination for our clients. The Custom Fabrication division focuses on manufacturing client-designed industrial process equipment. This can range from one-time custom equipment builds to long-term partnerships where R-V serves as an external manufacturing resource for specific or entire product lines.
“Pete is a dynamic individual, who has a unique combination of technical aptitude and communication skills,” said Kirk Putt, president of R-V. “He is driven to expand the value-added resources and services we provide clients, ensuring we achieve the necessary quality, delivery, and price requirements.”
During his seven years with R-V, Pete has been instrumental in developing our welding procedures, technology and automation – including the introduction of robotic and K-Tig keyhole welding. Pete also helped expand R-V’s qualified weld procedures to nearly 400, covering most alloys.
“I look forward to leading the Custom Fabrication & Machining group to new heights,” said Koegel. “My focus will be two-fold: 1) serve as a customer resource to ensure their projects are built with the highest quality standards, on-time and 2) reduce customer’s manufacturing costs through automation and new approaches.”
Founded in 1974 as a small custom fabricator located in the suburban Philadelphia area, R-V Industries has grown to become a 260 employee, design and manufacturing organization, featuring multiple products/divisions and four locations with over 180,000 square feet of space. The company’s mission is to “supply superior products and services at a competitive price, with integrity.”
