Mavrik North America Appoints Kevin Wilkinson to Oversee Engineering and Fabrication


Date: 07/23/12

Mavrik North America has appointed Kevin Wilkinson to oversee Engineering and Fabrication operations for its winemaking technologies and equipment. Kevin will be based at Mavrik’s Santa Rosa-based fabrication and design facility.

Wilkinson grew up on a farm in Soledad, CA and graduated from Cal Poly SLO in 2003 with a degree in Agricultural Engineering. After graduation, he worked for eight years at Ag Industrial Manufacturing in Lodi supporting wineries and vineyards with a specialization in mechanical harvesters.

Wilkinson was hired to relieve one of Mavrik’s founders, Bob Kreisher, of some engineering responsibilities. “We have several new technologies and filters coming out soon,” says Kreisher. “As we continue to grow, my attention is increasingly commanded by research and development of gentle winemaking filtration and technologies. Kevin is critical to maintaining our design standards, deadline management, and quality control for all of our equipment. He has already improved many of my original designs.”

Wilkinson has already made major contributions to Mavrik’s line of must pump carts, and its soon-to-be-released radical new wine filtration system. In addition, he has improved the efficiency of the fabrication department and expanded its capabilities.
