“We have so much to offer, from prototyping, to engineering services, to formulating rubber compounds, to our ‘machining’ process, to the best in global assembly... it’s really mind-boggling” said Orr.

GBSA, a leader in molded rubber v-seals, oils seals and o-rings, has named Cameron Orr to the newly created position of Sales and Marketing Manager and announced the appointment of Eric Farmer as Engineering Manager.
Orr is responsible for assembling a sales team, expanding the business and elevating market penetration. His base of operations will include: Ohio, Illinois, Michigan, Indiana, West Virginia, Kentucky, Pennsylvania and Western New York.
Orr is also responsible for increasing awareness of what GBSA can do from a marketing and sales perspective. “We have so much to offer, from prototyping, to engineering services, to formulating rubber compounds, to our ‘machining’ process, to the best in global assembly... it’s really mind-boggling” said Orr.
Bernie Casamento, Chief Executive Officer of GBSA is very confident that Orr can take the company to the next level. “We want very much to show everyone in the business that GBSA can solve just about any seal problem…on time and on budget,” says Casamento.
Farmer is responsible for all research and development testing including building the test sites. In addition, he will develop new products for GBSA.
“I’ve developed new products before but none in terms of molded rubber seals,” says Farmer. “I think my greatest single challenge will be to learn all about the rubber derivatives that are used in GBSA compounds,” he continued.
Judy Pratt, General Manager of GBSA adds, “so much of the work that we do revolves around the testing of our products. It’s being certain that they work as expected in any application. We think Eric can be a real resource to our team.”
Orr is a 1981 graduate of Ashland College with a Bachelor of Science degree. He has worked for Ingersoll-Rand and Dowell Schlumberger in well stimulation, pump packing, blending operations and bulk handling. He currently lives with his wife in the Painesville, Ohio area.
Farmer, who previously worked as an aerospace engineer for Kelly Aerospace fuel systems and an electro-mechanical engineer on military specified circular connections at Aero-Electric, is a 1993 Industrial Engineering graduate of Wichita State in Kansas. He lives in Willoughby, Ohio.
For over thirty years, GBSA has been a leading supplier of molded rubber parts, plastic, ceramic and metal stamping services that are engineered to withstand the toughest environments. Our pledge is to deliver quality parts, on-time and on budget.
