“The combination of his past direct experience in operations, coupled with his recent experience managing the technology that drives our operation gives Dax the perfect background for his new role,” said Max Dull, APW’s VP and general manager. “We congratulate Dax on his new appointment and know that with his leadership we will continue to drive operational efficiencies through greater use of technology going forward.”

Dull continued, “Our operations team, previously lead by Coy, has laid out a master plan for continuous improvement focused on three areas, which include review of all warehouse processes, remapping of inventory locations for greater picking efficiencies and full implementation of scanning technology. With Dax Neal now looking after our daily operations, it will allow Coy to focus on implementation of the operations improvement master plan and ongoing continuous improvement actions, leveraging his many years of experience.”

“It’s my goal to help enhance existing programs and processes, improve effectiveness, foster a collaborative work environment and tap the expertise of employees,” said Peach.
