FHC Appoints Armando Rodriguez as Vice President of Manufacturing
June 10, 2020
The Frameless Hardware Co. appointed Armando Rodriguez to the position of vice president of manufacturing. Rodriguez brings over 30 years of glass industry manufacturing and fabrication experience to the newly created role, most recently serving as senior vice president of manufacturing at C.R. Laurence. Prior to that, Rodriguez assumed leadership roles at Tajima Corp., a specialty metal contractor/manufacturer, and International Architectural Metal Works.
In his new role, Rodriguez will steward FHC’s entry into the manufactured products sector, managing staff and production on an expanded plant floor. FHC recently added to its manufacturing footprint to increase capacities in support of Rodriguez’s team and direction.
“Designing and manufacturing architectural systems was part of the long-term plan since day one,” says Chris Hanstad, president of FHC. “Armando’s addition to the FHC family has significantly expedited that process in the best way possible. Our investments in product R&D now have a swift and clear path to market. The industry has been demanding better product solutions and faster lead times, and we’re now positioned and equipped to deliver.”
