We ran across two recent “people changes” which we would consider worth mentioning. It looks like Joshua Farrell very recently became Plant Manager of commercial heat treater Mid South Metallurgical in Murfreesboro, Tennessee, USA. Previous to this Joshua had spent 26 years as Production Manager at Century Sun Heat Treat in Michigan. Mid South is a long established commercial heat treater owned and run by Mr. Clif Coleman which has batch IQ furnaces, Vacuum furnaces and Ion Nitriding systems. In this photo we see Clif and his Quality Manager Jay Hendershot.
It would appear that Mike Nappi left Feintool in Cincinnati, Ohio, USA mid December of this year. Mike worked at Cincinnati Steel Treating for many years before joining Feintool. Feintool is an interesting company which offers fineblanking which required a great deal of heat treating-some of which is done in-house although most is outsourced to local commercial heat treaters. We’re not sure where Mike has ended up but we assume it will be in another heat treating capacity.
