B&J Rocket America, Inc. is located in Middlebury, Indiana, and will be headed by Mr. Todd Hart as General Manager. Hart, previously director of sales, will be supported by former managing director of B&J USA, Mr. Robert Burnetter as management consultant.

His key responsibilities will be the strategic direction, the coordination of the merger and aligning the two companies. “The teams in USA, Switzerland and Denmark, site of the European manufacturing unit, are highly motivated and pleased to work together as one strong, global company. This motivation will lead to even better customer service and product quality, as well as strengthen the engineering of new and innovative products” says Müller. “Our customers and business associates will continue to find in B&J a most reliable partner.”
