Wildeck appoints Michael Galezio to Quality Assurance/Safety Manager
To support the company’s aggressive business growth, Galezio will report directly to the President and will be responsible for facility and personnel safety, and streamlining company procedures to reduce cycle times and improve work-flow.
Michael is a graduate of Yavapai College, Prescott, Arizona with a degree in Manufacturing Technologies. He brings over 18 years of industry related quality and lean experience to Wildeck from several manufacturing companies. Previous accomplishments as a Quality and Manufacturing Engineer have included upgrading production routing formats and providing detailed work instructions for production personnel.
