Nadeau began as a Product Manager for Juki’s first placement machine, “The PlaceMat 360” in 1988. In 1994, Steve was promoted to Regional Sales Manager. In addition to this role as Regional Sales Manager, Steve held the title of South American Sales Manager for the past year, supporting Juki’s large installed customer base in South America and helping to develop new business opportunities. “I am looking forward to my new role and the opportunities to present Juki’s newest technology to the industry,” commented Nadeau.
Bob Black, President and CEO of Juki Automation Systems, commented, “Steve’s 23 years of hard work and loyalty to Juki have earned him this position. We look forward to his increased management role in our sales activities, and to increasing our sales even further in the Americas.”
In his new role, Steve is responsible for sales throughout the Americas. He has been with Juki for more than 23 years and brings a high level of expertise and experience to this position. As National Sales Manager, Steve ensures that Juki will continue to provide top-quality machines and reliable service to the American electronics assembly market.
Juki Corporation’s experience as the market leader in industrial sewing machines was the stepping-stone for the entry into the printed circuit board assembly market in 1987. Since then, Juki has delivered more than 22,000 automated assembly systems worldwide and is currently shipping an average of 200 assembly machines per month. This extraordinary achievement makes Juki one of the world’s leading providers of automated assembly products and systems. In addition to its core technologies, Juki’s Electronic Assembly and Test Systems Division develops and manufactures advanced electronic systems and computer software for data entry, mail processing and other electronic equipment.
With the purchase of Zevatech’s assets in November 1999, Juki Automation Systems now brings Juki’s reputation for top quality and reliable service also to the North and South American and the European electronics assembly markets. Juki recognizes the challenges of the new century and is prepared to respond to the globalization of electronic manufacturing. With a sophisticated knowledge base, advanced technologies and a high commitment to its customers, Juki is poised for continued growth in the 21st century.
