KAM founder and CEO, Brad Keselowski said: “To us, engineering includes CAE, CAD, CAM as well as advanced simulation. That’s been one of the biggest struggles with additive, but one of the most important which is why Robin is such a crucial piece of the puzzle. He’s been tested and proven to be the best in one of the harshest and most unforgiving environments, and we believe he will be instrumental in taking the company to the next level. Naturally, he is going to help strengthen our position in the additive marketplace, but more importantly, our customers will now have access to one of the world’s top talents in the simulation space. Everyone wins.”
Tuluie added: “Brad’s vision and leadership have been foresighted to where KAM is building the capabilities to fully leverage the synergies of simulation and additive. Our goal is to deliver rapid products, not just rapid prototypes. I love the racing team mentality ingrained in the company, along with the culture and experience of the team. It’s a culture I know well, which gets things done right the first time. Having worked with John Murray on various projects over the last 20 years, I know we’re going to do some exciting and groundbreaking work at KAM.”
