Global innovator of performance-driven bearings and 3D printed mass production components, Bowman International, has announced the appointment of Alistair Brixey, as Executive Vice President of Bowman North American Operations.

The appointment comes following a period of intensive growth for Bowman across North America, in which the manufacturer has expanded its network of reliable distributors in the region, as well as its portfolio of OEM and MRO clients covering virtually every sector of industry.

English-born Alistair brings to his new role over four decades of industry experience both in the UK and America, most recently dedicating 13 years to a well-known plain bearing manufacturer and distributor in the states and before that, working for Oilite bearings for 30 years in the UK. Alistair is also a committee member of the US Bearing Specialists Association.

With a wealth of knowledge serving OEMs and large distributors, Alistair will become an extension of all three Bowman International divisions, giving North American distribution partners and customers a direct point of contact in the region.

Chairman of Bowman International, Paul Hancock explains:

“We have been growing our presence in North America for some time and have developed enough of a client base to warrant a more substantial offering in the region. Alistair is the first part of this transition and will use his technical and sales experience to bring continuity between the Bowman offering in America with what we offer in the UK.

“We are confident that with Alistair at the helm, our American clients will be well looked after. We have further investment planned for the US which gives us confidence that our presence in the region will follow a steep upwards trajectory.”

Alistair concludes:

“Bowman brings to market genuine bearing innovation that solves very real issues faced by many critical sectors across North America in both plain and rolling element bearings. I am delighted to be joining such a dedicated team and look forward to bringing Bowman’s customer-centric approach to bearing design to the fore in the US.
