Mike’s performance under pressure as a General Manager at ThermoFab has been instrumental in making the company the industry leader it is today. Under his leadership, ThermoFab has maintained its on-time shipping rate of 95% for many years by delivering quality products on time.

Always being intrigued by the way things are built and function Mike has spent his entire career in manufacturing. Early on as a draftsman engineering and designing environmental components used on oil tankers and then in the plastics field designing and building jigs and fixtures to help streamline the manufacturing process.
