Management

President – Robert McCarry email_button

As President and Owner of Pack Air, Robert’s passion for the conveyor industry started in 1984 in the original PAI facility. In October of 1985, Robert began learning Pack Air’s roots as a general laborer. Honing his skills, he moved into engineering in the late 80’s and onto sales from there. Supporting many of our existing customers and building new relationships, Robert watched Pack Air grow and expand its knowledge base covering many product lines including food, beverage, tissue, and agricultural. As time went on, Robert moved in the roll of Company President and from that transitioned into ownership.

 “I have a strong compass and believe in treating people with Honesty, Integrity and Fairness. I approach every project with the belief that we will exceed the customers’ expectations and build a quality level that my Father instilled in me, ‘Your Customers are truly a Jury of your Peers.’ As Owner today, my wife and I look forward to many more years of being involved in this industry and someday being able to watch the company continue with the next generation,” Robert McCarry, President
