AME’s Advanced Workforce Continues to Grow
Advanced Machine & Engineering (AME) is excited to announce the following additions and promotions within our uniquely diverse manufacturing family. Please join us in congratulating and welcoming the following individuals:
Steve Schubert is no stranger to AME. He started out on the factory floor during his junior year of high school. He drove the truck, worked in shipping and receiving, and was a machinist for a brief time. From there he ventured into a supervision role in the shop’s production control department, and eventually became a production manager.
Throughout the years, he worked as a plant and operations manager, then got involved with sales and worked his way up to Chief Sales Office for AME and its sister company, Hennig Inc.
We are excited to have Steve back at AME full time as the Chief Operating Officer. He will be responsible for directing and leading AME’s overall operation, with the exception of Quality and Continuous Improvement. Steve will also oversee our company’s Job Shop product group.
Brad Patterson has vast experience in machining including machining centers, coordinate measuring machines, horizontal boring bars, and programming. When he came to AME, he was involved with inspection and quality and worked his way up to VP of Operations.
As Chief Improvement Officer, he will oversee all of our quality management systems, inspection, and the apprenticeship program. He will also lead continuous improvement efforts throughout all of AME.
In this new position, Brad will tackle the most difficult challenges and identify opportunities for streamlining work and reducing waste in an ongoing effort to improve AME products, services, and processes.
Greg Hobbs started at AME as a tool and die maker. After 18 years, he advanced as a Service Manager for North America and eventually moved over to Hennig, Inc. as the National Service Director.
We are excited to have him back in his new position as AME’s Plant Manager. His new responsibilities will include managing all of our manufacturing, assembly, and equipment maintenance.
