Edward J. Albietz
Sales & Applications
Extension 23

The ultimate compliment that many folks continue to shower upon Ed is he has become his father. From his kind jovial manner to his gifted level of field expertise, there may be good reason to say that about Ed. After 30 years of what he humbly refers to as his “Constant Apprenticeship” if you have a question he’ll likely have already encountered your issue and know the resolution. Folks who meet him will only doubt his uncanny level of expertise for a short time. They soon find out “Ed knows DRO” and quickly come to respect his knowledge with its application. Professional in demeanor, knowledgeable as anyone in the field, Ed is your technical man and will know the right means to control your machine and get the job done.

Michael (Ed’s son) is also in the field. He grew up in this business like the Albietz brothers and is versed in DRO function like everyone at AMS.  While knowledgeable in all areas, the rest of the company gravitates to him for answers in retrofit automation/programming.
