Robert (Rob) Williamson
He started his career in the poultry processing industry in 1993. Working from the ground up since he was 19 years old, Rob started at MD Poultry in Paris Ontario where he mentored under George Desender, a 40 year veteran in the further processing of poultry. Rob was following in the footsteps of his Grandfather, Bob Williamson, who in 1937 managed the Irish Hog Marketing Board, as well as his father, Fred Williamson who dedicated over 30 years of his career to the Canadian Meat Industry, working with Fearman’s, Protein Foods and later with Pinty’s.
Moving into the Industrial Food Processing Equipment business was a natural fit for Rob’s background and skill set. Rob has over 20 years of experience in the meat processing industry, from Mechanical Separation through sausage making, Production and Maintenance. With 15 of those years spent running and overseeing POSS equipment, Rob brings a wide range of food industry experience as well as technical expertise to POSS. He joined POSS in 2008 and was promoted to VP Operations in 2012 where he heads up the Turn-key Systems Integration Division of POSS.
