Aaron Wiegel President Weigel Tool Works JR Lang President Midwest Turned Products JR took a leap of faith and started his own business, Midwest Turned Products (MTP), in 2006 after holding technical positions at sev- eral companies. MTP quickly grew into a large-scale machining and manufacturing business. JR says he's been blessed with the ability to provide employment and forge partnerships with many eager and hardworking individuals and with so many great customers and vendors in the CNC machining industry. In his community, JR is involved in two business leadership groups, where he shares his expertise and experience to help other emerg- ing leaders develop their talents and strategies. Johnathon Wilyat CMM Quality Manager Camcraft Johnathon began his career at Camcraft two years ago with little experience in the indus- try. He started on the shop floor, learning about the machines, processes and the goals of the company. Jonathon learned the CMM quickly and in no time was showing his co- workers all the features within the software that they didn't know existed. He took training courses on GDT and Solidworks and is now one of Camcraft's top Solidworks users. Johna- thon taught himself 3D modeling, and as a result, he is assisting in the design of several manufacturing processes on the shop floor. Because of his determination and willingness to learn, he won't give up on a chal- lenge until he finds a solution. Aaron started working at Wiegel Tool Works when he was in grade school, and in 2001, he officially joined the family business his grandfather founded. He be- came co-owner and president of the metal stamping company in 2010, and in partnership with his sister and his brother, Aaron has grown the business and tripled revenues. In the past year, he established and became president of MSA- Wiegel, an international joint venture created to further add to the company's manufacturing capabilities and serve customers globally. Aaron is actively involved in several manufacturing associations, and he pushes for any chance to attract and retain talent in the manufacturing industry. Kelly McCambridge Controller Orrco Kelly started her career at Orrco in 2014, after earn- ing her degree in supply chain management from Penn State University and then working for a large chemical company. This represented a new opportunity for her to combine her background in the family business (she is the first member of the fourth generation), educa- tion and work experience to advance the company. Through her efforts, she has revamped Orrco's inventory management system and has been an expert at cementing relationships with buyers and purchasing agents. Her most recent accomplishment has been spearheading the revamping of the company's quality control program. As a result, Orrco has earned its first ISO registration. 30 PRODUCTION MACHINING :: JULY 2018 SPECIAL COVERAGE
