Chicki, who helped launch the Indiana facility in 2017 following 20 years at Schneider Electric, currently serves as shop supervisor.

It’s a big task considering the continued growth of the company, but Chicki is up for the challenge. “This promotion will not only open up new business opportunities for us, but it also gives more opportunity for other people to advance,” he says.
