Pittsburg, CA – Bishop-Wisecarver Corp., manufacturer of the DualVee guide wheel and guided motion technology, has hired Ali Jabbari as its vice-president of engineering. Jabbari will have the primary responsibility of overseeing the engineering department for Bishop-Wisecarver and provide a strong focus on new product designs.

“I joined Bishop-Wisecarver because of its strong history in linear motion, its record of innovation, and its commitment to not only keep up with market trends, but its forward-thinking philosophy that encourages out of the box ideas,” said Jabbari. “I believe Bishop-Wisecarver is in a unique position to leverage its … presence in the motion industry by reaching customers with more system-level motion technologies and automation ….”

Jabbari holds an undergraduate degree from Northeastern University and a PhD in Mechanical Engineering from University of California, Berkeley. Before joining Bishop-Wisecarver, Jabbari started his career in research engineering, later transitioning to practical engineering when he worked on next-generation lithography machines for Nikon Research Corp. and electromagnetic transducers for Tymphany Corp. His area of expertise includes motion control, automation and dynamic systems.

“I am very impressed by the depth and breadth of engineering knowledge that Ali brings to our team,” said Pamela Kan, president of Bishop-Wisecarver. “He has a great practical sense to engineering that is very reminiscent of how my father looks at engineering, yet, at the same time, he is extremely innovative. It’s a very exciting time for Bishop-Wisecarver right now, and I look forward to the next chapter of product development.”
