Al Brown

Name: Kevin Clark

Title: Application Engineer

Department: Medical Sales

Month/year joined Bender: February 2008

Before joining Bender in 2008, Kevin was employed with a small masonry company owned by his father. At the masonry company, he led a group of about ten team members. His team’s work primarily consisted of stone jobs with some brick and concrete work.

Kevin has been fortunate enough to have the opportunity to learn a variety of duties during his thirteen years with Bender. From starting out as an Operations Assembler and building standard isolated power panels to producing custom units tailored to meet customers’ specific needs. His training and experience in the Operations Department have allowed him to assemble for both the medical and industrial sides of the business. At times, he was even tasked with building demo units for the sales team. At the close of his time with the operations team, Kevin fulfilled the duties of Team Lead, tasked with supporting staff with all their operational needs, training, and working to meet production standards and deadlines.

Since February 2022, Kevin has been a part of the sales team as an Application Engineer. In this role, he is responsible for reviewing all engineering drawings and specifications that come from Bender's reps or distributors. With this information, sometimes hundreds of pages, he creates a quote. He is also responsible for maintaining quotes as the opportunities move through different stages of the design, maintaining changes until the final drawings are released. This typically involves multiple revisions and conversations. He also works with the team by assisting in responding to technical questions from Bender's reps, distributors, and contractors. Kevin couldn’t be more excited for this new chapter of his career with Bender and to be able to contribute to the success of the company in new ways.

Bender’s small, family-like atmosphere has always been the most enjoyable part of Kevin's job. Kevin says, "Coming to work has always been a joy, and watching the company grow while maintaining an ongoing commitment to prioritizing employees has been incredibly fulfilling and motivating."

Outside of work, Kevin enjoys spending time with his wife and son, riding motorcycles, boating, snowboarding, and being outdoors with their dogs.

Kevin says he likes all Bender products for different reasons. Bender's Isolated Power panels can be sold as a base unit or have many complex safety features added to tailor them to what the end-user requires or wants. For example, adding the EDS441, CMS460, and COM465.
