|I am Michael Leonard, the owner of MTL Services. First of all, I would like to say thank you to the food industry and all of the people and companies I have been honored to work with throughout my career since 1986. I could not have been more blessed than to be a part of this great industry. I graduated with a degree in Mechanical Engineering at NC State University in 1981, I spent the first eight years in engineering & project management. I entered the food industry & sales in 1986 with Square Food Processing Machinery, tumblers/marination, introducing the Belt Grill to the U.S. market until joining Frigoscandia (JBT Food Tech) in 1989 for 8 ½ years. In 1997 I assisted in building a small spiral company, Freezing Systems, that later became RMF Freezers.
