Kathy Kauffman

Inside Sales Professional, Atlas Chem-Milling

Kathy’s career with our team began in 1982 when she was hired as the Marketing Director. During her 16 year tenure, she transitioned to sales in the Midwest. Kathy then rejoined our sales team in 2005 now handling inside sales for the rotary product group. Her favorite customer project involved a large format Eagle Die installation running on a universal Rayform base. The Eagle Die eliminated the cut-throughs the customer had been experiencing and led to more uniform cutting with very little make-ready.

Superhero: Underdog (“There’s no need to fear!  Underdog is here!”)
