Jerry L. Mosingo was named executive vice president of manufacturing operations of Textron Automotive Trim in October 1999.
The Troy, Mich.-based company is a leading worldwide supplier of automotive interior and exterior plastic components specializing in instrument panels and cockpit systems, door trim panels, painted fascias and exterior lighting. The firm last fall announced plans to license to all types of injection molders a patented process, called IntelliMold, that uses microtransducers to monitor and control every stage of the molding inside the press. The system is claimed to reduce both scrap and cycle times.
Textron ranked as North America's largest injection molder last year, with injection-related sales of $1.7 billion, according to Plastics News data.
Mosingo manages the operations of 34 manufacturing facilities worldwide with about $2 billion in sales. In addition, he is responsible for driving business improvements, cost and quality systems, safety, new technologies and business development, customer relationships and employee development within Trim operations.
Prior to this assignment, he was a senior vice president of manufacturing for the trim division, and was responsible for directing operations, strategic planning and business balancing while achieving key performance objectives for eight Textron Automotive Trim manufacturing facilities. His operations have received the highest quality awards from all original-equipment customers over the past three years.
Mosingo joined Textron Automotive Co. in February 1998 from A.O. Smith in Milwaukee, where he had been director of operations since 1992 and vice president of quality since 1997.
He holds an associate of science degree in industrial technology from Baker College.
