Meet the Team

Jason Babcock

Jason is a Sales Engineer for Paschal Associates LLC, and territory includes both Virginia and Maryland markets.  With 17 years of service in the mining industry, Jason spent college summers working for Austin Powder throughout the Mid Atlantic region, afterward completing the management training program and assuming multiple leadership positions at an S&P 500 company.

With experience in production management in multiple locations, Jason applies relevant, working knowledge of the critical metrics that his customers face every day.  This authentic familiarity with the industry, coupled with a modern business education, allows him to collaborate with both managers and engineers to determine what changes in plant processes – if any – will enhance production efficiency and critical product yield, which will ultimately have a positive impact on the bottom line.

“I enjoy helping my customers accomplish their production objectives.  It’s an environment of constant change, and the variety of challenges forces me to approach each situation with an open mind.  As a result, the business relationships I have are built on trust and mutual respect.  That – at the end of the day – is the best part of my job.”
