JCB Names Witter VP Manufacturing

JCB North America has appointed Tim Witter as its vice president of Manufacturing. He replaces Stuart Hughes, who returned to JCB’s global headquarters in Rocester, Staffordshire, England, in November 2015 to lead the company’s Heavyline Product Manufacturing Center as director of operations.

In his new position, Witter will be responsible for JCB’s North American manufacturing center, which builds the company’s skid-steer and compact track loaders, the 3CX backhoe loader and the HMEE (High Mobility Engineer Excavator). He will oversee all of the Savannah, Ga., based manufacturing departments, including the Engineering, Production, Manufacturing Purchasing and Logistics departments. He will also be responsible for production control, manufacturing engineering, quality, new product introductions and providing direction for global production of JCB skid-steer and compact track loaders.

Witter joins JCB with extensive experience in manufacturing, including over 18 years at Gorbel Inc., a global overhead handling solutions manufacturer, where he served as vice president of operations. Before that, he worked as the engineering manager for Champion Products and director of operations at The Melton Shirt Company.
