Bangalore: Sulaiuman Jamal, Managing Director of Bevel Gears (India) Private Limited has joined the Board of Directors of the American Gear Manufacturers Association (AGMA). Jamal is the first Indian to join the Board of AGMA and was invited to do so on the basis of his four decades of experience in the Gear industry.

Bevel Gears (India) Private Limited is now entering the aerospace and robotics gear markets.

Sulaiman Jamal received his degree in mechanical engineering from P.S.G. College of Technology, Coimbatore, South India. After his technical education he worked in the P.S.G. toolroom before joining Bevel Gear Company in Bangalore where he was exposed to bevel gear cutting tools, bevel gear manufacture, and heat treatment of bevels. He branched out in 1976 to start his own gear shop and expanded his business since. He now is the Chairman/Managing Director of the Jamal Group of companies, which manufacture a very wide range of bevel gears – straight and spiral including spiral grinding/curvic coupling grinding and bevel gear-related products.

He joins 10 other members on the Board of AGMA. Three others were appointed to general seats of the AGMA Board of Directors: Bob Sakuta, President of Delta Gear Inc.; Michael Smith, Vice President of Sales and Marketing of Capstan; and Mike Suter, Vice President of Marketing of Emerson Industrial Automation.

The outgoing board members are Ivan Brems, Richard Kuhr, Jack Nowlin, and Bryan Lammers.

AGMA also appointed Matt Mondek of Cotta Transmission as chairman of the board for 2011-2013 and the appointment of Lou Ertel of Overton-Chicago Gear Corporation as treasurer.

AGMA was established in 1916 and has helped set gearing standards in the US. Over the years it has extended its reach to members around the world. AGMA includes 400 of the world's top gearing experts from over 30 countries.
