Austin Powder Co., a manufacturer of explosive technologies and blasting services, named Jason Rawlings as its president. Rawlings succeeds Dave True, a 43-year veteran who will continue to serve on the company’s board of directors.

“At the end of a thorough and thoughtful search, we agreed that Jason Rawlings is a leader who exhibits a deep respect for what we do, and for our employees and customers alike,” says John Rathbun, president and CEO of Austin Powder Holding Co. “We are delighted that Jason has joined our company.”

Rawlings joins Austin Powder from Cummins, where he served as executive director of sales and marketing. He also has an extensive background in general management in the mining, rail and defense industries.

“It is truly an honor to join the Austin family,” Rawlings says. “The company has a rich history and an admirable culture steeped in family values. I look forward to working with my new colleagues in the U.S. to take on the exciting opportunities presented within our markets.”
