“We are extremely fortunate to have someone of Jerry’s caliber and experience join our team,” said Kendrick. “The company has grown rapidly over the last few years with family leadership, which has led us to this critical moment in our growth plan.
With Jerry’s guidance we will be able to successfully implement our strategy growth initiatives and take advantage of the tremendous market opportunities ahead. Jerry has the experience we were looking for in manufacturing leadership and he will bring PES to the next level and beyond. We have worked together for many years in a customer/supplier relationship which has given him a thorough understanding of our facility, capabilities, markets, and products.”
Jerry has had a long career in machining and manufacturing businesses. As the president of an industry-leading Aerospace manufacturing firm, he led that company from start up in 1988 to $60,000,000 when he stepped down in 2009. During his tenure the company gained worldwide recognition as the leading tooling manufacturer of close tolerance molds and mandrels. Since leaving Anthony has performed strategic management consulting for multiple aerospace firms. Jerry’s considerable experience includes Corporate Management, Operations management, Product Engineering Management, and Product Development.
Commenting on his new appointment, Jerry said “I am extremely pleased to take on this leadership position at Production Equipment Specialties. I have always had a high regard for the expertise and skill of Tony Kendrick and have watched with satisfaction over the years as his business grew. This is an exciting time for me to join the PES team as we aggressively expand our repair, retrofit, service and CNC precision machining departments. We have a great team at PES that is working hard to help PES reach its full potential.”
PES was conceived and formed over 18 years ago and since that time the company has grown steadily in employees and expertise. Our staff consists of machine tool builders, machinists, tool makers and electronic engineers. Our precision machining expertise allows us to solve production and machining related problems quickly and efficiently.
The goal at PES is to always stay on the cutting edge of technology in the CNC field and all types of equipment to better meet the changing needs of our customers. Our clientele includes small jobs shops up to and including large aircraft corporations.
