Carl LaFrance has been promoted to corporate SVP of Quality, a position that is part of a broader realignment of the company’s top management team. Carl also serves as chief information officer.

For the last 12 years Carl has held the position of wind energy champion at MFG, overseeing the company’s wind turbine component business. Wind energy parts are produced at four of MFG’s entities in the US — MFG West, MFG Texas, MFG Alabama and MFG South Dakota.

According to Carl, “The approach I like to take is not enforcement, but proactive reputation management with guidance from rigorous cost of quality analysis in the spirit of continuous improvement. I will be meeting regularly with the entities and their customers to exchange best practices and share lessons learned from our most sophisticated manufacturing operations and customers.”
