EXTON, Pa. — Michael Gaborcik has been appointed regional sales manager for Fogmaker North America.

Gaborcik brings nearly 20 years of bus industry experience to the fire suppression supplier. He has worked directly with bus manufacturers and fleets throughout North American markets.

“Michael brings significant technical experience, as well as long-standing relationships with manufacturers, dealers, and transportation officials in many of our key U.S. and Canadian markets … especially those within the school bus industry," said Kent Tyler, executive vice president.

Gaborcik added that he is “extremely excited to be part of a company representing such an important, technologically advanced safety system.”

Fogmaker uses water mist to suppress fires by displacing oxygen and reducing the ambient temperature to prevent re-ignition. It also blankets fuel sources with a biodegradable, non-toxic foam.
