Thermwood is celebrating its 50 anniversary and experiencing unprecedented growth, much of it attributed to the success of its new large-scale LSAM additive manufacturing systems, according to the company.
“(LSAM) are industrial-sized 3D printers, some capable of printing composite parts up to 40’ long and weighing several tons. These machines are currently producing large composite structures from the chassis of an autonomous urban bus to tooling for the production of the interior of modern jet aircraft. These systems are transforming the company, resulting in structural management changes and new advancement opportunities,” the company said in a statement.
The company has promoted Jason Susnjara to executive vice president. Susnjara has been with Thermwood since 1995 and has held numerous positions, most recently as vice president of Marketing. He is also on Thermwood’s board of directors.
In this new position he will oversee and manage Thermwood’s technology, engineering, manufacturing and marketing operations. Thermwood operates a complex manufacturing operation, building some of the most technically sophisticated industrial products built today. In his new position Jason will manage the operation and expansion of these activities to support ongoing growth.
Thermwood has also promoted Brian Smiddy to vice president of product development, Larry Epplin to vice president of software development, Duane Marrett to vice president of marketing, and John Fuquay to the manager of engineering.
