New Sales Talent Joins the Obsidian Team



Rockford, IL–– (September 24, 2018) Obsidian Manufacturing Industries, Inc., formally Magna-Lock USA, Inc., would like to welcome Nicholas Rivers to our sales team.


Rivers joins Obsidian’s team, led by David Nordman, with over 30 years of sales knowledge.  His vast experience in managing projects, training, customer service and account management made him the perfect candidate for the position.


“I have the opportunity to thrive with a company that’s big enough to compete on the worldwide stage, yet small enough to feel like family,” says Rivers.  “I love to come to work every day.  Let’s do it with a smile–every customer–every time.”


Rivers consistently brings a positive attitude to his position by looking at every problem as an opportunity to overcome.  He has been a volunteer with the Young Life ministry for over 25 years and understands that a job goes far beyond a paid position.


Obsidian Manufacturing Industries, Inc. is home to Magna-Lock USA, MagnaLift, Power-Grip, and the recently acquired Arter Precision Grinding Machines.  Obsidian’s products can be found on various manufacturing floors all over the world for use in a multitude of industries.


Obsidian Manufacturing Industries, Inc. is located at 2730 Eastrock Drive, in Rockford.  For more information about the Obsidian brands visit or call (815) 962-8700.
