Larson welcomes Manny Resendes back to the Attleboro, MA metal stamping team
Attleboro, MA—May 29, 2019—Larson Tool & Stamping Company is pleased to announce that Manny Resendes, who previously worked for Larson for 20 years, has been hired as a new engineering manager.
Resendes has worked for the company in various capacities over the years. He started at Larson in 1996, just out of a machine shop vocational high school, as a participant in the Massachusetts apprentice program for four years. Once he graduated, he became a certified toolmaker. He consistently improved his skills and expertise, learning CAD, then progressing as an engineering designer. During his time as a process engineer, he became proficient in Six Sigma, ultimately certified with a black belt in 2008. His initiatives during this time included upgrading and improving processes and efficiencies throughout the entire facility. Resendes held positions as quality manager and special project and engineering manager at Larson.
In his current position, Resendes will be running the engineering and tool departments, overseeing 13 colleagues. After working on projects in aviation, the U.S. Navy, and for a high-tech start-up with MIT graduates during the time away from Larson, Resendes is ready to bring all that valuable experience back to the production floor with him. He said, “I’ll be working with customers on their design for manufacturability initiatives. My time away was fruitful, allowing me to see how niche manufacturing is done around the world; now I can utilize that knowledge here. Knowing the nature of the quick-response and collaborative team environment here at Larson—as opposed to what can be prohibitive in larger organizations—I look forward to diving in and making positive, timely outcomes happen for customers.” Resendes also explained that his wide exposure affirmed that Larson is unique because its production systems for deep draw stamping are world-class. He has seen no cell design and one-step process as efficient as Larson’s in all his travels.
Ray Niquette, Jr., VP at Larson, said of Resendes, “Because he progressed through virtually the entire process of how a part is made—building the tool, designing it, and running it on every level—he understands how things are made, from the ground up. This is his strong suite, and we are happy to have Manny back with the Larson team.”
