Global Resource Names Kimberly Chief Operating Officer
Global Resource Corp., a developer of a patent-pending microwave technology and machinery for extracting oil and gas, announced today that Jeffrey T. Kimberly has joined the company as chief operating officer.
Kimberly was formerly president of Ingersoll Production Systems, Rockford, IL, a custom engineer and manufacturer of high quality production machinery. A subsidiary of Dalian Machine Tool Group of Dalian, China, Ingersoll Production Systems, which has manufactured machine tools for more than 100 years, currently manufactures GRC's revolutionary microwave machinery for the extraction of petroleum products.
As Chief Operating Officer, Kimberly will be responsible for the company's production, sales and administration. He will report to Chairman Frank Pringle.
Chairman Frank Pringle of Global Resource Corp. said, "Jeff Kimberly's 27 years of experience in machinery engineering and production will help GRC realize its potential in the diverse industries that can use GRC's patent pending microwave technology to extract oil and gas. Having worked closely with Jeff for the past 16 months at Ingersoll, we also know that his large company operating experience will contribute substantially to GRC's business development."
Kimberly said, "I see huge promise in GRC's technology and am excited to be part of the team to develop its use so that it can help fill the world's energy needs. GRC is uniquely well positioned technologically to make a difference. It has the capability to increase energy supplies while reducing the world's carbon footprint. As a company, I see it is poised for substantial growth that should enhance its shareholder value as well."
Kimberly first joined Ingersoll Milling Machine Co. in 1981 as a trainee. He rose through the ranks as a mechanical engineer and project manager. In 2002, the production division of Ingersoll Milling was sold to Dalian and then renamed Ingersoll Production Systems. In 2005, Kimberly left Ingersoll and joined ITT Pure-Flo MPC, Kenosha, WI, which produces systems for the pharmaceutical and bioprocessing industries, as a senior project manager and master scheduler. In 2006, he returned to Ingersoll Production Systems as director of planning and process control. He was named president in 2006.
