Oak Creek-based Superior Die Set Corp. has named Martin Girga as chief executive officer, replacing co-owner and co-chairman Frank Janiszewski.

Three generations of the Janiszewski family have led the company, a manufacturer of steel and aluminum products for metal stamping, plastic injection molding and forging industries.

“We are now at a critical point in an increasingly competitive and complex business climate,” Janiszewski said. “To continue to meet our customers’ requirements and harvest this very strong market, my brother Casey and I have made an important decision concerning the future of Superior Die Set. After more than 40 years at Superior, we are turning the top post over to someone with exceptional outside experience to take the company to the next level of operational execution, commercial growth and financial strength.”

Frank and Casey Janiszewski will remain the majority shareholders of Superior Die Set and will be co-chairmen of the company’s board.

Girga joins Superior Die Set from Fives Giddings & Lewis in Fond du Lac where he was vice president and general manager. His other previous experience includes leadership at Danaher, ITT Industrial process and Orchid Orthpedic.

“Superior Die Set is well positioned for continued growth,” Girga said. “With the support of the leadership team we plan to build on the existing foundation, focusing on customer value through operational and commercial efficiencies. My immediate focus will be to meet with customers, suppliers and our team members to better understand our customers’ and organizational needs.”
