Pittsburg, CA - August 25, 2011 - Bishop-Wisecarver Corporation, manufacturer of the original DualVee® guide wheel and industry leader in guided motion technology, announced today the hire of Ali Jabbari as Vice President of Engineering. He will have the primary responsibility of overseeing the engineering department for Bishop-Wisecarver with a strong focus on new product design.
"I joined Bishop-Wisecarver because of its strong history in linear motion, its record of innovation, and its commitment to keep up with market trends, as well as its forward thinking philosophy that encourages out of the box ideas," said Jabbari. "I believe Bishop-Wisecarver is in a unique position to leverage its strong presence in the motion industry by reaching customers with more system level motion technologies and automation needs."
Jabbari holds an undergraduate degree from Northeastern University and a PhD in Mechanical Engineering from University of California, Berkeley.

"I am very impressed by the depth and breadth of engineering knowledge that Ali brings to our team," said Pamela Kan, president of Bishop-Wisecarver.
