Meridian (http://mzero.com) has named Chris Mele Director of Manufacturing. Mele will oversee design and engineering, full fabrication, and assembly at Meridian’s headquarters in Aberdeen, N.C. He will also be responsible for ensuring all processes in those areas are ISO 9001:2008 compliant.

Mele relocated to the Sandhills of North Carolina to join Meridian after living in Longmont, Colo. for over 15 years. “It’s easy to understand now why Meridian has always remained where it is,” said Mele. “This is a great area and that has made for a smooth transition.”

Mele has 24 years of experience working in a contract manufacturing environment involving metal fabrication and assembly. “Meridian is a unique place where technology and innovation converge with the cutting, bending and welding of metal,” said Meridian President Buck Warren. “We needed someone with the aptitude and experience to lead such an operation; with his background, Chris is a great fit.”

Prior to joining Meridian, Mele spent 11 years as General Manager for Wilcoxson Manufacturing and four years as Engineering Manager for Star Precision, both of which specialize in sheet metal fabrication. “When you own the entire manufacturing process like Meridian does, it’s crucial to have the right leader overseeing it,” said Meridian CEO Chris Gilder. “Chris has a handle on each step of the [manufacturing] process and we are excited to have him fill this role for Meridian.”

“In the short time I have worked at Meridian, the expertise, knowledge, and dedication of my colleagues has become clear,” said Mele. “I look forward to finding better ways to satisfy customers, improve quality, and reduce costs; there is no doubt that the collection of talented people here will drive us to bring our A game each and every day.”
