Oregon-based Bulk Handling Systems (BHS) has named Richard Sweet as Systems Optimization Manager, a new position developed to improve the company’s customer service.
Sweet and his team will oversee plant optimization and preventive maintenance for the Parts Programs and regularly scheduled visits to materials recovery facilities (MRFs) and other customer locations.
“Richard’s experience and expertise will be a tremendous asset to our current and future customers,” said Steve Miller, BHS CEO, in a statement. “As we continue to expand our system base, it is a top priority that we have the pieces in place to proactively support them. Our customers’ success is our success, and Richard’s aptitude in the field will help our customers keep their systems running like a BHS system should – leading the industry in throughput, recovery and uptime,” Miller continued.
Sweet has been intimately involved with every major BHS system since he started with the company in 2008, experience that gives him a unique understanding of MRF operations. “MRFs are larger, more technologically advanced, and recover more than ever. Throughout this evolution I have been fortunate to have worked with hundreds of elite operators and the best equipment in the industry,” said Sweet. “I plan to share these best practices to help our customers achieve their business goals. It’s a truly exciting position for me, and one that I’m sure will provide great value to our customers,” he added.
Previously, Sweet was the BHS Projects Group Manager. As a mechanical engineer, he has experience in operations management, product design and development, project management, analysis and assessment, manufacturing and service support.
