New Leader at EIGERlab Techworks

As many of you know, Dave Morgan has accepted a position at the National Institute for Metalworking Skills (NIMS) and has moved to Virginia. Ron Gustafson has accepted the position to replace him as the new TechWorks business development manager.

Ron’s background is in manufacturing. On October 11th he retired from Clinkenbeard, a Rockford foundry tooling and machining supplier, after serving as its president for the past 34 years. He is very familiar with the CNC machining of castings, barstock parts, foundry patterns, rapid castings and mockups for the aircraft, trucking and industrial industries.

TechWorks is a tremendous resource for our community as we add well-trained CNC machine operators to our workforce.

Ron will also conduct the monthly Techworks Advisory Committee that provides input to Techworks regarding program development and other matters.
