SPRINGFIELD, OH – Parker Trutec Inc. recently implemented changes affecting the organizational alignment of the company’s North American operations. Current and future business growth prompted these changes in order to better serve the expanding customer base and increased operational growth opportunities in both U.S.- and Mexico-based facilities.
Parker Trutec MMI, with facilities in Sevierville, TN, and Paragould, AR, will become the responsibility of William (Bill) M. Moore, who will serve as President. Moore will focus on operational growth for the southern U.S. facilities and further expand this market area in the metals treatment industry. Strong growth since the acquisition of these facilities in 2003 has allowed for a more regional focus. Parker Trutec Inc. owns Parker Trutec MMI.
Parker Trutec Inc., with facilities in Springfield and Urbana, OH, will become the responsibility of Joseph (Joe) E. Gummel, who has been named President. Gummel will lead the Ohio-based Parker Trutec facilities, as both operational plants continue to experience steady growth. Recently, the Ohio facilities celebrated 25 years of operations, with the Urbana facility starting operations in 1988 and the Springfield facility in 1989. Nihon Parkerizing Co. Ltd. owns 100% of Parker Trutec Inc.
The Mexican company, Parker Trutec Mexicana S.A. de C.V., which began operations in 2009, is in the process of adding a second location. In addition to the surface treatment and heat treatment plant in Aguascalientes, a second heat treatment plant in the state of Guanajuato is under construction.
