JLS Automation added Craig Wolfe to its senior leadership team as VP of Operations and Manufacturing. Wolfe previously spent 20 years at a large industrial manufacturing company in Lebanon, PA, where he started in the scheduling department and worked his way up to General Manager. His extensive background offers a range of experience from operations management, acquisition integration, manufacturing, lean continuous improvement, quality, safety, and purchasing to maintenance, assembly, customer service, fabrication, and cross-functional team management.
Wolfe’s accomplishments include improving product quality, increasing working capital and inventory turns, cutting manufacturing expenses and conversion costs, and reducing lead times while improving on-time shipments.
“We are excited to have Craig join our team as we continue to grow and expand our capabilities,” says Craig Souser, President and CEO. “He’s going to be a great asset and bring valuable experience as we look to sustain our growth and become more vertically-integrated. The entire company looks forward to the addition of his strategic vision, diverse skill set and leadership style.”
