Paul Kessler comes to D3 Technologies with a Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Missouri emphasizing on CAD/CAM and robotics, but he launched his career long before graduation.
While attending school, Paul took advantage of an opportunity to work at Emerson Electric, learning about engineering services for a wide range of industrial, commercial, and consumer markets. Paul gained real-world skill by working any chance he could, spending holidays and breaks sharpening his talents and education at Emerson. After graduation, Paul started full time at Emerson Electric Co. in the Electronics Space Division.
When it was time for Paul to leave Emmerson Electric, he began work for Intergraph Corporation. Paul spent his time as a Regional Application Engineer covering seven states. He successfully provided enterprise engineering support of Intergraph’s Engineering Modeling System for five years.
Following that, Paul began working for Advanced Data Graphics. ADG was one of the top 10 Autodesk resellers and the number 4 Parametric Technology (PTC) reseller at the time. It was with ADG that Paul mastered Pro/E and honed his skills in manufacturing consulting and training of Pro/E. In addition to that, ADG is also where he was first exposed to the power of Delcam’s PowerSolutions and trained in PowerMILL and ArtCAM.
Seeing skills that Paul possessed, PTC extended him an offer of employment as an Implementation Consultant. Here Paul helped customers in the implementation of Pro/E. With a successful career and years of experience supporting manufacturers with CAD/CAM technologies, Paul started CADMIN services.
CADMIN Services became pros with the Delcam products starting in 1998. Having once sold and supported their manufacturing software while working at ADG, he saw opportunities for their products in the Midwest and contacted Delcam directly. Instantly, CADMIN Services, Inc. was invited by the VP of Sales to be a Delcam Distributor. From the beginning, CADMIN was carrying what was once the entire Delcam line of products including PowerMILL, PowerSHAPE, PowerINSPECT, CopyCAD, FeatureCAM, and ArtCAM with customers in the states of Missouri, Kansas, Arkansas, Oklahoma, and Texas. All states that D3 currently sells into as well.
Ultimately, it was only logical that D3 pursue Paul and CADMIN Services, Inc. for the knowledge he possessed with the PowerSOLUTIONS and FeatureCAM products. Now that D3 Technologies has acquired CADMIN, Paul will join the D3 Technologies Advanced Manufacturing (Delcam) team and will bring his 30 years of experience to our D3 Technologies customers.
“I’m very excited to be working with Paul, and to be able to expand the breadth and depth of D3’s capabilities with Autodesk’s manufacturing solutions such as PowerMill, FeatureCAM, and TruNest. This is an exciting development for our clients, because now with D3, they can have one partner covering all their needs with Autodesk solutions.” Said Kevin Schlack, President of D3 Technologies.
