Germantown, MD—Meggitt Sensing System (MSS), the manufacturer of industry-leading accelerometers and vibration sensing products, announced today that it has hired Peter Eitnier as Mechanical Engineer for Wilcoxon Research products, and promoted Wayne Glidden to Director of Materials.
In order to meet production level demands of Wilcoxon Research products, Wayne Glidden, previously Technical Services Manager has been promoted to Director of Materials, and Peter Eitnier has been hired as a Mechanical Engineer. The addition of these roles will add to business growth and development, enhancing product design and lead time.
Wayne’s new role will put him in charge of supply chain management including purchase orders, vendor selection and supplier relationship cultivation. To ensure material availability for production, Wayne will be managing inventory as well as overseeing receiving and shipping procedures. “Wayne has a deep understanding of the materials purchasing process which directly corresponds to production goals and lead times” said Jim Michaelis, Chief Operating Officer of Wilcoxon Research products. “His experiences in Technical Services will allow him to implement better material handling procedures and policies”.
A recent graduate of the University of Maryland with a Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering, Peter Eitnier will participate in research and development activities by aiding with CAD drawings and the construction of products. He will also be a key contributor to the Research and Development department, whose responsibilities include implementing cutting edge product development programs in condition monitoring products and underwater acoustics. His past internships with Bandwidth Solutions (contracted by Orbital Sciences Corporation) involved designing satellite parts integral to solar array assemblies. Peter was additionally responsible for generating and performing tests for the designed parts to ensure stability and reliability. As an intern for Precision Product Group, he updated work instructions for extrusion machinery by working with machinists to understand the intricacies of machinery, and documenting the corrective action needed to operate the machinery safely. “Peter’s practical mechanical experience will allow him to understand and develop our product lines significantly” said Dr. Chris McLean, Director of Research and Development for Wilcoxon Research products. “We look forward to the innovation and technological understanding he will bring to the R&D team.”
