David Gregg, a steel industry veteran of two decades, has been named director of operations at Max Weiss Company, the region’s leader in custom metal bending, forming and fabricating.
Gregg, who has served as plant manager at Max Weiss Company since 2014, brings a wealth of diverse experience to his new role. His background in the metal rolling/shaping industry includes production and personnel management, sales and purchasing, facility and equipment maintenance, and quality control supervision.
