Leadership

Robert C. Montgomery

President, CEO & Treasurer

Robert earned a Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering from the Auburn University in 1964.  A member of the Pi Tau Sigma Honorary Mechanical Engineering Fraternity and Tau Beta Pi Scholarship Society, he was awarded the Outstanding Scholar Award for earning the highest grade average in Mechanical Engineering for his graduating class and the Outstanding Engineering Graduate award from the Auburn University Engineering Council. 

Beginning full time work for the Jacksonville Blow Pipe Company in 1964, Robert brought with him a sharp mind for solving problems and a no-nonsense approach to running a business - sticking to the basics of fiscal discipline and personal integrity.  He believes prudent management and financial strength are cornerstones to serving customers over the long term.

His mind always at work in new and creative ways, Robert has received patent #5,044,570, patent #5,100,070 and patent #5,205,667 from the United States Patent Office for innovative design concepts.  Whether it is blowpipe systems, control panels, hogs, or computer system architecture, he has the mind to grasp the variables and make things work.

Jonathan C. Montgomery

Executive Vice President & Secretary

Jonathan earned a Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Florida in 1991.  While a member of the Pi Tau Sigma Honorary Mechanical Engineering Fraternity, he held office as both Treasurer and President.

Beginning full time work for Montgomery Industries International, Inc. in 1991, Jonathan brought with him a passion for organization, quality, excellence and attention to detail for all things big and small.  Early on, he led the conversion of drafting and manufacturing into the digital age, heading a major capital investment to blend old school expertise with networked, computerized machine control. 

He sees design as an ongoing process of research, understanding, assimilation and improvement.  Having embraced that process for decades, he believes in capturing the value of what’s old to make sure it’s not lost in what’s new.  With experience in design, manufacturing and product support, he developed the fully redesigned, second generation LRW Grinder in 2009.
