Würth Industry North America announce personnel moves

Würth Industry North America announced the retirement of Gary Huck as CEO/managing director of Würth Adams.

Rick Frank, former director of sales, assumed the role of managing director for the Brooklyn Park, Minnesota facility.

Huck worked for Würth Adams for more than 15 years and held the position of managing director for 14 years. During that time, sales grew from $24 million to $109 million.  

Frank began in the fastener industry in 1986 and has been with Würth Adams for the last 12 years, where he has held many different positions in the company. “I am looking forward to continuing the long lasting success that Würth Adams has had over the years. New advancements in technology and automation will take us into markets that we have yet to explore, and I am excited about the future of the employees of this company,” said Frank.

The WINA companies also welcomed managing director Tino Schablow and director of quality management, Rob Girdley to their new positions. Schablow was involved in the set-up of WINA’s newest foundation company, Würth Industry Canada in Ontario. The Ontario based company was founded as part of WINA’s overall logistical expansion plan. 

Girdley is responsible for managing all activity to drive quality assurance from WINA’s supply base and provide oversight in standardization of overall quality programs. He and his team will support the organization's growth strategies to ensure quality product is delivered to customers and work to collaboratively maintain the operating companies' goals and objectives. Girdley was director of quality at Würth Service Supply in Indianapolis and has been a member of the Würth Group Quality Council, the only U.S. representative on the council.
