Joy Abbitt has joined BluTec Machinery as a Florida territory manager. Headquartered in Hickory, N.C., BluTec is a distributor of Elk Grove, Ill.-based MC Machinery Systems Inc. 


Abbitt has worked in advanced machinery sales and service for the past seven years. A Navy veteran and graduate of the U.S. Naval Aviation Technical Training Center in Pensacola, Fla., Abbitt served on the U.S.S. Carl Vinson as an avionics technician on F-18 Super Hornet fighter jets.  


Abbitt said she wanted to work with BluTec Machinery to represent MC Machinery fabrication equipment because of the high integrity of both companies.  


“Working for and with organizations that provide quality products and stand by those products with superior service is very important to me,” she said.  


MC Machinery North American Sales Manager for Fabrication Shane Herendeen said that Abbitt’s strong background in machinery, engineering and aviation will be an asset in her new role. “Joy’s technical knowledge will be of great value to our manufacturing customers who are looking for fabrication machines and systems that provide solutions,” Herendeen said.
