Mokena, Ill. — ASSE International has hired Conrad Jahrling to the position of staff engineering supervisor. Jahrling’s primary responsibilities in this position will include reviewing ASSE product listing (SEAL) reports and applications for technical content, coordinating the development, technical review and revision of product standards, and fielding technical questions from manufacturers, labs, code officials and the general public.

“I, along with the working groups and listees of ASSE International, have been eager to fill the vacant position of staff engineering supervisor,” said ASSE International Executive Director Scott Hamilton. “Conrad’s combined experience in process, product and design engineering will bring ASSE International’s product standards and listing programs to a new level of credibility and expertise, which will benefit our customers greatly.”

He previously worked as process engineer and product engineer, primarily in automotive engineering, before being hired by Sloan Valve Company as product engineer and later promoted to senior mechanical design engineer.
“I am very happy to be filling the role of staff engineering supervisor for ASSE International,” said Jahrling. “I will be working in tandem with Stan Nickell, technical services coordinator, to tackle the technical side of our programs and will be looking to everyone in the organization to understand ASSE and IAPMO to their fullest.”
