Jon Owens, vice president of Mining and Construction Products at ESCO, has assumed the newly created position of vice president of Business Development and Global Products.

“I’m excited by our focus on growing ESCO’s business worldwide in the markets and competencies where we already excel — namely the design, manufacture and global distribution of highly engineered metal wearparts, components and earthmoving products used in global mining and construction applications,” Owens said. “I’m also eager to explore new opportunities that will help ESCO build our leadership position around the world.”

Owens joined ESCO in 1986 and in addition to business development oversees product management, engineering and marketing for all mining, construction and industrial products. Owens also manages ESCO’s licensee relationships in Australia, Chile, Japan and South Africa.
