MILWAUKEE, WI ― Federal Mfg., powered by ProMach, announced today that John Oliaro has been named the division’s new Vice President and General Manager. Federal is one of the world’s leading suppliers of filling and capping packaging solutions.

“John joined Federal in 2013 as Operations Manager and this past year gave him exposure to Federal’s technology, processes, markets, and customer expectations,” said Don Cotney, President of the ProMach Bottling & Capping Business Unit. “I’ve had the opportunity to work with John for nearly 15 years, and I know that Federal will grow and prosper under his leadership.”

Prior to his move to Federal, Oliaro was Operations Manager at Fowler Products, a ProMach capping and cap handling business, where he made significant contributions to the execution of machinery projects management and on-time deliveries. He joined Fowler in 1996 as a mechanical design engineer.
