Metcam, a fabricator of sheet metal components and assemblies for OEMs, today announced it has filled positions in three key roles: Chief Financial Officer (CFO), Materials Manager and Quality Manager. Finance expert Steve Honnold will serve as Metcam’s first full-time CFO. Seventeen-year manufacturing veteran Nick Danison will fill the position of Materials Manager. Quality-systems specialist Richard Uber will assume the role of Quality Manager. Bob Cheek, previously Metcam’s IT/Quality Manager, will assume the new role of IT/ERP Systems Manager.
“As Metcam continues to grow and thrive, we are expanding our staff with individuals who are deeply knowledgeable and competent in the areas where we place special focus, such strategic planning and analysis, quality control and lean manufacturing,” said Metcam President Bruce Hagenau. All three of these new employees have considerable experience in manufacturing and are highly attuned to Metcam’s passion for excellence and process improvement.
CFO Steve Honnold has specific expertise in financial planning and analysis, strategic design and implementation of enterprise solutions, and building partnerships with other business leaders. Prior to joining Metcam, Honnold served as Vice President of Finance for Ricoh Americas Corp.
Materials Manager Nick Danison has extensive experience using Syteline, Metcam’s newly implemented ERP system. He most recently worked as a ERP systems implementation consultant. He will head a Materials Team that focuses on inventory, purchasing and work order scheduling. Danison’s experience in strategic efficiency improvements, cost-reduction and tactical problem resolution will be invaluable in this effort.
Quality Manager Richard Uber is charged with continuously improving Metcam’s quality assurance programs and will report directly to Metcam’s president. Uber brings 15+ years’ experience as a Quality Manager with Advanced Steel Technology to his new position, along with broad experience implementing and managing ISO 9001 and lean manufacturing programs. He is a certified Black Belt in quality systems management.
“Despite its reputation for excellence, Metcam never stops improving,” says Hagenau. “We build flexibility, quality and lean principles into every process we create, and we hire personnel that are a reflection of these goals. We welcome these new employees as the latest members of the Metcam “family,”—the hard-working staff who form the foundation for our success.”
