NEW BEDFORD, Mass. - Edson International recently promoted Maurice King to vice president of manufacturing, the company said in a press release yesterday.
With Edson since 1999, King had previously been plant manager. In his new position, King will oversee the production facility, welding shop and inventory control. He will report directly to Hank Keene, Edson general manager and co-owner.
“Since Maurice has come on board, he has really streamlined our manufacturing processes,” Keene said. “His experience in areas outside of the marine industry has brought a fresh, professional computer-oriented approach to the manufacturing side of Edson.”
Before joining Edson, King was plant manager for Process Systems International's Chart Coastal Fabrication Facility in New Iberia, La., from 1993 to 1997. He has also been director of operations for Koch Membrane Systems located in Wilmington, Mass., from 1989 to 1993.
