|Management Team and Staff
In 1976 Mike entered the metal component manufacturing business as an engineering
assistant. Working his way through many different areas of manufacturing like
engineering, quality, production supervision and upper management, he has learned
the value of a team oriented business philosophy. Mike came to lead the Coldwater
Sintered Metal Products team in 2004 with this philosophy, "In ALL things we do,
give our current and future customers what they need, when they want it!"
His commitment is to delight each one of our customers whether we are producing 1
or 100 different part numbers for them. His goal is to build a long term partnership with
each customer demonstrating Coldwater Sintered Metal Products to be a dependable
supplier of high quality powdered metal parts and custom machining.
For over 20 years David has had hands-on experience in pursuing a multi-disciplinary
approach to managing quality systems through *Gemba Kaizen, Statistical Process
Control, Change Management, Lean Manufacturing, and Training and Development. He
joined the Coldwater Sintered Metal Products team in late 2005, and has been very
instrumental in obtaining our ISO/TS16949 certification. His attention to detail and
systems orientation continue to bring improvements to our manufacturing systems.
* Gemba (the place where value added work occurs), Kaizen (continuous improvement).
From an entry point as material handler in a Powdered Metal plant in 1972, Mike has
grown up in the industry. He worked his way up through the ranks and achieved
Powdered Metal Technologist level I certification in 1996. The powdered metal parts
company he started with then promoted him to the position of manufacturing manager,
where he served for the next 4 years. In 2000 Coldwater Sintered Metal Products was
able to bring Mike on as Operations Manager and he has done an excellent job of putting
systems in place that allow us to maintain very good on time delivery and quality records.
Mike is a key to our success.
