VMAC R&D Team Welcomes Two New Engineers

first_imgNANAIMO, B.C. – The Research and Development department at VMAC has announced the addition of two new engineers:  Osama Jilani, an engineering physics graduate from the University of British Columbia (UBC), and Rob Pletcher, who graduated with a degree in Mechanical Engineering from UBC.   VMAC is a manufacturer of compact air compressor systems for the mobile-mechanic, tire service, utilities and construction industries. Specializing in underhood and hydraulic above-deck systems, VMAC has developed some of the lightest and most compact mobile air compressors available in the industry.   Jilani has joined the team as a junior electrical engineer. With a background in power systems (power transmission) and power electronics, he also brings experience from working in large and small organizations in the software-development and alternative electric-vehicle industries. Jilani works with VMAC’s expert engineering team to focus on product confirmations and designs for a new external diesel-driven system and VMAC’s vehicle-mounted underhood compressors.   Pletcher studied at the UBC-Okanagan Campus and, with a very mechanical background, has a wide range of experience working on equipment from Piston Bully Snow cats to transplanting a right hand drive diesel engine into a left hand drive four-wheel drive vehicle. His previous experience included coordinating large environmental cleanups and general hazardous waste project management. He also worked with building demolition and soil remediation, and as a maintenance engineer directing multiple mechanics for accurate and efficient completion of heavy equipment repairs. Plecther will join VMAC’s world-class engineering team with a focus on new product development and innovation.         AdvertisementClick Here to Read MoreAdvertisementlast_img
