December 9, 2016 - Walter Friedrich, President of German Machine Tools of America announced the promotion of Scott Knoy to Vice President for the company. Scott joined GMTA on July 1st, 2005, back when the company was known as American Wera. Since then, Scott has played a large role in the growth of the organization.  GMTA is a leading supplier of machine tools, lasers and parts washers to the automotive power transmission, gear and other markets in North America. Scott was particularly instrumental in helping GMTA secure a “Global Purchase Agreement” with General Motors, according to Friedrich, who made the announcement from the company headquarters in Ann Arbor, Michigan.

“Scott has also played a key role in keeping the business running smoothly, especially during the last several years, as we’ve opened our facility in Mexico and I’ve been working in Mexico to support this effort,” Friedrich observed.  The GMTA Mexican facility in Queretaro is now fully functional, with plans for expansion already in the works. 

As a sign of appreciation and a move for the future, Walter spoke with the GMTA board of directors at this year’s IMTS and they agreed to offer Scott the position of Vice President at GMTA.

Knoy will continue to oversee the sales and marketing of the company, in addition to other administrative duties at the Ann Arbor headquarters.  Scott is also very active with AGMA, the gear association.   He is a graduate of the University of Michigan and also holds an MBA.
