Inside Sales Engineer
What amazes me about working here at Lake Shore is that every day I talk with people who work tirelessly to improve the world around us. Whether it’s missions to outer space or doing tests in a university lab, I find it fascinating all of the uses that our products have in helping these people get a better idea of our world.
Alex Tabar is Inside Sales Engineer for Material Characterization Products, responsible for answering questions regarding products and sales orders, and ensuring that Lake Shore customers get the best solution for their specific need.

When necessary, he coordinates post-installation operational service and support with Lake Shore technical support, application scientists, and field personnel.
