Cotta Transmission is excited to announce Marian Domanski as the new Customer Service Representative. Marian will be taking over the responsibilities from Sara Brady, who is retiring the end of this week.
Marian is not a newcomer to Cotta, as he has held various positions at the company for over 30 years on and off. Marian’s first introduction to Cotta was through his father who was also a long time Cotta employee. As a teenager, Marian remembers visiting the shop and seeing the huge machines his father worked on. This sparked Marian’s interest in manufacturing and led him to work part time for the company after high school. Prior to working full time at Cotta, Marian attended Northern Illinois University and earned a B.S. degree in Industrial Engineering.
Marian’s previous experiences also includes working as Plant Manager for Rockford Heat Treaters, Manufacturing Engineer for Coltec Industries, and Senior Manufacturing Engineer for Henry Pratt Company. Over his 30 years at Cotta, in addition to working with engine and turret lathes, grinders, vertical mills, radial drills, and shipping, Marian’s positions also included CNC Programmer, Process Engineer, Manufacturing Engineer, Continuous Improvement Manager and Inside Sale Manager. The knowledge that Marian has gained over the years working with parts, processes, machining, engineering, etc. has already proven to be of tremendous value to the customers as well as Cotta.
Marian is excited to join the Cotta team again. The company has been very important to his family over the years. At one point, he worked alongside two uncles, two cousins and his father. Marian expressed how special the Cotta team is, and the working environment, and is happy to be back.
