Vulcan Spring & Mfg. Co. has announced the promotion of Bill Krauss to company president. A 37-year veteran of the spring industry, Krauss previously held the position of COO, including 25 years under his belt with Vulcan.
Established in 1967, Vulcan Spring & Mfg. Co. is a well-recognized designer and manufacturer of flat steel springs and related assemblies for diverse global markets.
“After working together with Bill for many years to build Vulcan into the premier flat steel spring manufacturer in the industry, it was clear that it was time to entrust Bill to lead the team into the future,” said Scott Rankin who now becomes chairman of the board. “Bill is a man of extreme integrity and I’m certain he will succeed in implementing our aggressive growth strategy.”
As a result of this change, Glenn Stewart (CFO), Dave Frederick (VP, Operations), and Paul Jarossy (VP, Sales and Marketing) will now report directly to Krauss.
“I am very honored to succeed Scott Rankin as president of Vulcan, and excited to lead the charge toward continued growth and success,” said Krauss. “With the team we have assembled and continue to build upon, I am confident that Vulcan will become an even stronger force in our industry.”
