Executive’s Corner – March 2022

An Exciting New Chapter in ENTEK’s History

Welcome to the latest issue of Extrusion Solutions

ENTEK Adaptive

For our first issue of 2022, we are excited to announce the news of ENTEK’s acquisition of Adaptive Engineering & Fabrication, a leading supplier of material handling systems based in Placentia, California (see story on page 1).

ENTEK and AEF have worked together for many years; in fact, we have partnered on numerous projects as customer and supplier.  AEF specializes in material handling and downstream processing equipment, and there are many ENTEK complete extrusion systems in the field that include AEF equipment.  By combining our companies, we can provide our customers with even better service and a single source for their extrusion and material handling system needs.

Henderson Update

ENTEK continues to execute on growth plans, to meet the growing demand for both production equipment and extrusion wear parts with our new 98,000 square foot facility in Henderson, Nevada (see the story on page 4).  Since announcing the opening in late 2021, we have been hard at work installing new state of the art machinery and hiring new ENTEK team members including machinists, welders, IT personnel, and both mechanical and controls engineers. 

Our investment in this new facility is significant and will result in additional capacity for both our fabrication and wear parts manufacturing.  Our aftermarket wear parts are an important part of serving our customers, and our new plant will enable us to produce more parts faster than ever before. 

We have numerous job openings available at ENTEK, both in Lebanon, Oregon and Henderson, Nevada; check out our list of positions at https://entek.com/careers/us/.  If you or someone you know is interested in joining our growing company, please contact us today.

Well-Deserved Promotions

I want to congratulate John Burke, Marvin Kuenzi, and Tim Glover on their recent promotions to Vice President positions at ENTEK (see story on p. 3).  John, Marvin and Tim are the leaders of ENTEK’s Manufacturing, Engineering, and Machining operations and they do an outstanding job leading their teams and are an important part of our business growth. 

I am also excited to share that Craig Clayton has been promoted to Regional Sales Manager.  Craig joined ENTEK in 2021 from Gala/MAAG, where he worked on many installations that included ENTEK extruders.  Craig is a great addition to our growing sales team. 

Thank you to all of our customers for your continued support.   I encourage you to contact me anytime at kmedford@entek.com.
