Promoted to Plant Manager with the assignment to lead the Nashville plant in a comprehensive, company-wide Lean Manufacturing initiative. Directed a facility of 150-200 employees in the manufacture of pool heaters and heat pumps ($80+M in annual sales).

 By 2007, increased overall plant unit output by 90% (59k unit production) within original facility by leading multiple lean production initiatives. During that same period, customer service fulfillment went from 53% to over 95% due to production scheduling changes allowed with the implementation of one-piece flow methodologies in a low volume/medium mix environment.

 Led the shutdown and product transfer of (2) heat pump lines to the Nashville facility in 2009 and 2011.
