Extrusion System Manufacturer Granco Clark Promotes 25-Year Employee to Mechanical Engineering Manager

BELDING, MI -- (Marketwired) -- Jul 11, 2013 -- Granco Clark ( www.grancoclark.com) has promoted company veteran Kurt Lipka to the position of Mechanical Engineering Manager. Lipka plans on expanding the policy of sending engineers out into the fields for installation and initial startup processes on all projects, further increasing the efficiency of the equipment startup phase while improving maintenance requirements. The hands-on field experience of Granco Clark's engineers has improved the installation process, reducing startup to as little as two-to-four weeks.

Founded in 1947, Granco Clark has maintained a reputation for producing technological innovations for manufacturing aluminum extrusion systems of exceptional quality, starting with the introduction of the first direct-flame impingement furnace in 1954.

"Bringing our engineers out into the field has resulted in an even more complete understanding of how our equipment functions in real-world applications; it has helped us achieve better communications and closer relationships with our customers," said Lipka.

Additionally, in the next six months within the department, Lipka plans on increasing the amount of in-house testing on products before shipping. The process has begun moving from testing each piece of equipment individually to testing mating pieces as a cell.
