Rollem International Announces Longtime Executive’s Retirement

Barry Kallman, Rollem International’s vice president of sales for the Western region, retired effective Aug. 31 after 31 years with the company. He was recruited by Baumfolder in 1972 as a salesman in Southern California and was subsequently promoted to the Western regional sales manager, where he built a successful sales team.

In the late 1970s, Baumfounder was sold and Kallman was promoted to the position of Western regional V.P. of sales and marketing. Barry was responsible for Baumfolder donating one of their products to Cal Poly Colleges Graphic Arts Dept.

In 1988, after Baumfolder was sold again, Kallman was approached by Larry Corwin at Rollem Corporation of America to join them and help market a new product, the TR Die Score System. He joined them in 1989 as VP of sales and helped Rollem become one of the leaders in Print Finishing Systems throughout the world. Kallman sold in the US, Canada, Indonesia, South Africa, Australia and the Philippines.
