Jamie McGregor most recently served as vice president of sales, where he was tasked with diversifying the company’s customer base. His grandfather, John McGregor, founded the manufacturing firm in 1965. Jamie McGregor’s uncle and father then spent years growing the business and it will now pass on to a third generation of family leadership, he said.

Dan McGregor, who previously led the company, is retiring.

“Even though Dan is stepping away from the business from a day-to-day perspective, he’s still just a phone call away,” Jamie McGregor said.

The company also announced changes to its executive management team. All of the executive team members have experience working for the company, Jamie McGregor said. Tom Wright was appointed as chief operating officer while Pete Dame will continue to serve as chief financial officer.

“They’ll help with the consistency and leadership style we’ll need to continue,” McGregor said.

Its customers include companies like John Deere, Toyota and Honda.
