More about Tim…

An Army combat veteran with greater than ten years active and reserve service with parallel and separate civilian experience in Maintenance and Engineering expertise. Accumulated extensive experience with Kaizens, FMEAs and implementation of lean practices.

My career development started in the pharmaceutical manufacturing industry morphing into cold rolled steel manufacturing which, although an extreme change in environment and process, this move proved to be a valuable learning experience. My current position envelopes several titles including, MTC Planner, Project Manager, and MTC Manager to identify a few. Perfected skills in EH&S, authored and implemented safety documents, adviser on major job accomplishments, and researched and implemented environmental impacts and processes.
