Helped make Behlman a world-class manufacturer of AC and DC power supplies.

...with Ron and Karl at the helm, Behlman will continue to provide the highest levels of support for our military, industrial and commercial customers.

Behlman Electronics Inc., known for its leadership in providing power products for military and industrial applications, will have a new President and a new Executive Vice President, effective May 4, 2012. On that date, Company President Mark Tublisky will retire, and Ronald Storm, Vice President of Sales and Marketing will become President. At the same time, Karl Schmidt, currently Vice President of Operations, will be promoted to Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer.

In 1990, Behlman, then a division of Fiskars, was purchased by Astrosystems, Inc., where Mark, Karl and Ron came together to form the dynamic power supply management team that has been responsible for the success of Behlman. Orbit International Corp. acquired Behlman in 1996, with Mark as President, Ron as Vice President of Marketing and Sales, and Karl as Vice President of Operations.

Upon announcing his retirement, Mr. Tublisky said, “Working closely with Ron and Karl for the past twenty-one years to make Behlman a global leader in power supply design, manufacturing and sales has been an incredible and fulfilling experience. I am confident that with Ron and Karl at the helm, Behlman will continue to provide the highest levels of support for our military, industrial and commercial customers.”

Mr. Tublisky will remain Secretary of Orbit International, Behlman’s parent company, and will also provide consulting services.

Commenting on the management change, Ron Storm said, “When I look back on Mark’s remarkable achievements as President of Behlman, I am reminded of how lucky I have been to work beside him for so many years. In my role as President, I will continue his tradition of always striving to raise the bar of Behlman’s excellence. I also look forward to continuing to work with Karl to achieve the highest possible level of customer service. During this transition, our customers and prospects will be well cared for, as I will continue to manage the sales and marketing function while seeking a highly qualified Sales and Marketing Manager to add to the Behlman team.”

During his thirty-three year career in the electronics industry, Mr. Storm served in a wide variety of sales and marketing positions for such companies as Leader Instruments, Analogic Corporation, and Temco Instrument, before joining Behlman. During his twenty-one years at Behlman, he has been instrumental in expanding the Company’s sales of its standard power supply products to diverse markets, including oil and gas exploration and recovery; air and rail transportation; manufacturing production testing; utilities; and every aspect of the military market. At the same time, Behlman’s Commercial Off The Shelf (COTS) programs have expanded to provide standard and modified standard products capable of meeting the most stringent requirement of military airborne, shipboard, ground, and mobile applications, without the high cost of full-custom engineering.

Behlman power solutions include AC power supplies, frequency converters, inverters, DC-DC, AC-DC, DC-AC, and uninterruptible power supplies.
