The positions were created to support the continued growth of Deimco Finishing Equipment. Kirk Shirar, President and Co-Owner of Deimco stated, “We are excited to welcome Shivtej and Ryan to our team. They will be a great resource for Deimco and our customers.”

Shivtej Utekar obtained his Master’s Degree in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science from Wichita State University in May of 2020. During his time at university, Shivtej excelled academically and completed an internship with Speed Automation. As Automation Engineer, Shivtej will be responsible for the design and implementation of custom controls for Deimco’s system solutions.

Ryan Hass joins Deimco after graduating with a Bachelor’s Degree in Agricultural Studies from Iowa State University in May of 2020. During his time at Iowa State, Ryan possessed roles including fabrication, mechanical and electrical duties at B&G HVAC, Van Wall Equipment, and Reisetter Electric.

“We’re excited to add such high character people and high caliber talent to our team,” stated Tom Arneson, VP and General Manger. “We believe this is the correct time—and Shivtej and Ryan are the correct people—to make these notable investments as we execute our strategy to be the first choice finishing and material handling solutions provider.”

Additionally, Deimco announced a 10,800 square feet addition to its current facility in Tama. The new expansion will allow Deimco to pre-assemble and test operate multiple systems concurrently on its floor. This ensures customers have the opportunity to confirm the equipment they purchase will meet their requirements. The addition is underway and will likely be completed early second quarter of 2021.

"The Lord has continued to bless Deimco Finishing Equipment. We are forever appreciative to the City of Tama, Tama County Economic Development, and the community for welcoming us and for making Tama a wonderful place to do business.
