Dec. 4, 2015 – Delcam has added three additional applications engineers to its customer support teams in North America, saying the new hires follow “increased interest” in Delcam’s software from manufacturing companies that “need to increase productivity to meet growing demand, improve quality and reduce waste, and shorten lead times.”

Chris Marion has been added to the support team in the Windsor, Ont., office, bringing with him more than 20 years of experience in machining and tooling design. He started as a machinist/CAM operator, programming everything from small components to large molds. In addition, Marion spent two years as a designer of plastic injection molds and a similar period working in an EDM department as an electrode designer.

Jean-Francois Landry has joined the team working in Delcam’s Quebec office. He will use his 15 years of manufacturing experience to support customers using the FeatureCAM feature-based programming software.  During his career, Landry has served different positions, mostly in the aerospace sector. He started as a CNC machinist working on lathes, mills and wire EDM machines. After five years, he became a quality inspector, again working in the aerospace industry. For the last six years, he moved back into programming, working with machining centres with up to five axes, together with CNC lathes, and also designing workholding.

Justin Ferguson has been added to the team in Delcam’s Pasadena, Calif., office. He started his career in CAD/CAM in 2007 as an applications engineer for an education reseller which sold design and manufacturing software, 3D printers and laser engravers.

“We are very lucky to have found three such talented, enthusiastic and experienced individuals for our growing support network,” said Aaron Williford, post-sales support manager at Delcam North America. “The continued increase in our customer numbers has prompted us to add more people to ensure that we can provide those customers with the high-quality support they have come to expect.  I am confident that Chris, Jean-Francois and Justin will become valuable additions to our teams.”
