The global mould technologies resource D-M-E has announced a management reconfiguration that will enhance the company’s ability to operate as a single worldwide entity while still focusing individually on each of three regions: the Americas, D-M-E Europe, and D-M-E Asia.
Ken Jasina has been promoted to the position of general manager for the Americas, with oversight of sales, finance, engineering, and operations. Bruce Wasilewski’s promotion makes him director of Asian operations. He now oversees all Asian joint-venture companies, including D-M-E India. Alex Rosenzweig continues in his position as interim chief operating officer for D-M-E Europe.
In addition, Doug Miller is assuming the role of operations manager, and has responsibility for all North American plants and distribution centres.
These changes enable Dave Lawrence, president of D-M-E mold Technologies, to focus more on the company’s global strategy while supporting dedicated management of each D-M-E business unit. Prior to establishment of the new reporting structure, Lawrence had also been directly responsible for operations in the Americas.
“The real strength of D-M-E lies in its people,” says Lawrence, “and I’m looking forward to working more closely with D-M-E employees across the globe to build deeper relationships with key customers, partners. and suppliers. Meanwhile, at the regional level, this structure enables our business-unit leadership to play a more significant, direct role in meeting our customers’ evolving needs.”
US-headquartered D-M-E Co. offers the plastics industry a broad range of products supported by a global logistics infrastructure and a strong service ethos. The company supplies a complete line of hot runner systems, control systems, mould bases and components, and mould making and moulding equipment and supplies, as well as standard tooling for the die-casting industry.
