Pulsafeeder, a global leader in fluid handling technology since 1942, today announced two new appointments in the Houston Area to bolster OEM sales and management initiatives. Industry veteran Michael Bargas joins Pulsafeeder as Sales Director, reporting to Axel Bokiba, and Michael Fontaine joins the company as Sales Account Manager for OEM initiatives, reporting to Michael Bargas.

In his role as Sales Director, Michael Bargas will focus on identifying new opportunities with OEMs. Bargas comes to Pulsafeeder from Weir Minerals North America, a manufacturer of slurry pumps used in the mining, energy and general process industries, where he served as International Sales Director. Previously, Bargas was an area sales manager for Sundyne, a manufacturer of high-speed turbo compressors, and process & general industry pumps. At Sundyne, Bargas worked extensively with distributors, EPCs and OEMs - and he established an impressive track record developing sales forecasts and tracking successful performance.

Newly appointed Sales Account Manager Michael Fontaine will manage and support Pulsafeeder’s existing OEMs. Fontaine has accrued extensive business development experience as a strategic buyer for the City of Houston, where he sourced suppliers, evaluated bids, and managed relationships with strategic vendors in the oil & gas and power generation markets. Most recently, Michael served as sales manager for Anvil International, establishing a successful track record with EPCs in the power generation, midstream and downstream sectors, and working directly with customers such as ExxonMobil, Saudi Aramco, Marathon, Chevron, Shell, BP and the United States Department of Defense. Fontaine started his career learning data analysis techniques at Aramco Services Company, and he has also gained operations and procurement experience while working at Cameron International/OneSubsea.

Both executives are based in the Houston area.

“Pulsafeeder’s technology is used at many of the biggest power plants, refineries and chemical plants around the globe, and we’re thrilled to add two seasoned and talented executives who can add value for the OEMs that play such an instrumental role in these large deployments,” said Pulsafeeder’s Vice President of Product Management & Business Line Director Axel Bokiba.
