Chad Whittemore is Promoted to Director of Operations
Fab-Tech and Pure Guard are looking to experience some exciting times during the next two years. We have been living in a digital world where semiconductors have been taken for granted. But, Artificial Intelligence (AI) is changing everything – and bringing semiconductors back into the spotlight. AI’s potential market of hundreds of zettabytes and trillions of dollars relies on new or refurbished chip manufacturing facilities.
In addition, every week we learn of further acceptance of PSP® in the Wastewater market for odor control duct. In order to meet this growing demand, we will need to foster an atmosphere of success through accountability, communication, and LEAN methodology both in the shop and the office. We will also need to invest in new equipment so that we can improve productivity and throughput to meet our customer’s needs.
In line with these objectives, we are pleased to announce the following organizational change effective Monday, August 06, 2018:
Chad Whittemore has accepted the position of Director of Operations, responsible for both Fab-Tech and Pure Guard. Chad brings to this position a wealth of experience in effectively managing a production facility. Chad has been with Fab-Tech for over 30 yrs. During that time, he has held the position of Production Manager of the VT fabrication facility. He helped us consolidate all our manufacturing under one roof by becoming a major resource for us in establishing lean manufacturing.
For a brief period, he was Operations Manager at NEHP. He returned to Fab-Tech where he worked-in Engineering in both lab analyses as well as being the driving force in our continuous improvement program. Most recently Chad has been the Operations Manager for the Pure Guard business in AZ during a time of much needed equipment improvements.
His contributions over the years have had a significant impact on the success of Fab-Tech and Pure Guard. Chad will be working closely with FTI’s Directors of Marketing & Sales, Engineering, as well as Corporate’s Supply Chain, Traffic Management, Human Resource, and Finance departments to assure that they are satisfactorily meeting the needs of FTI internal and external customers. In this new role, Chad will report to Scott Fine, President of Fab-Tech.
Please join us in congratulating Chad on his new role in the organization.
