Tim Ehmler


After 15 years in animal feed customer support roles with Monsanto and Novus International, Tim joined AFB International in 2002 as part of the research and development team. In 2007 he entered his current role as AFB technical sales manager for Japan, assisting customers with palatability needs.

Tim’s home base is AFB’s North American headquarters in St. Charles, Missouri, USA, but he travels regularly to Japan to spend both work and social time with the customers he serves. “I enjoy the people I work with—at AFB and at our Japanese customers. They’re fun, ethical, respectful people,” says Tim. One look at Tim’s office shows evidence of his respect and admiration for the Japanese culture. There you’ll see pictures from customer visits, various Japanese art, authentic sweets and treats and even his walking stick from climbing Mount Fuji many times over!

Tim loves all things “outdoors.” He grew up farming near St. Charles and today he, his wife and daughters and their collie mix Molly and cat Daisy live on that family farm. They grow corn and beans and raise chickens for the family’s use.
