central region team - burt process equipment


Beginning in 2021, Burt Process Equipment merged with Fluid Handling Dynamics LLC expanding our physical reach to support our valued customers. In April 2021, Burt Process expanded to a newly established state-of-the-art central region distribution and fulfillment center.

Our facility is fully staffed in Bryan, Ohio, providing custom assembly, factory warranty evaluation, and pump repair. As a distributor for over 50 major equipment and high-end tools manufacturers, the new facility serves as a stocking and support hub. Expansion into Ohio allows Burt Process to reduce delivery time and shipping costs and provide field services to the region more effectively and efficiently.


Jim Kozumplik started his career in the automotive industry as a 13,000 sq. ft. mechanical/ body shop business owner. During his fifteen years as a shop owner, Jim was in charge of all day-to-day operations, including employee management, estimating, customer service, and hands-on automotive mechanical and body repair.

Fluid Handling Dynamics was a distributor and a service and warranty center for the ARO corporation. In 2014 Jim sold the business and started Fluid Handling Dynamics with his father, Nick, and an engineer at the ARO corporation for 42 years. Jim and Nick focused on providing the ARO end-user accurate technical support and an outlet to send ARO fluid equipment to be evaluated and repaired.

In March 2021, Burt Process Equipment acquired FHD and is now the new central region branch for BPE. Jim accepted a position as branch manager to lead the new central region branch located in Bryan, Ohio. As branch manager, Jim supports shipping and receiving, the outside sales team, and brings real-world knowledge of ARO fluid product application, support, and repair capabilities to Burt's central region.
