Corporate Enterprise Resource Planning Manager
Martin Sprocket & Gear
Gears have been used to transmit and distribute power for more than 40 centuries, but they can't be considered an out-of-date technology. They are still being widely used in contemporary applications; for example, the multiplying gears in wind-powered generators. Meeting the needs for a widely diverse customer base requires a talented and creative production team of designers and craftsmen, a large inventory of raw materials and the machinery needed to make finely crafted products.
In this presentation, Mr. Norwood presents an overview of the historical need for gears and sprockets and the Martin philosophy of a combination of finished goods inventory and a robust manufacturing capacity that enables Martin to service its customers on a global scale.
Curtis Norwood has a bachelor's degree in engineering from TCU and a master's in engineering management from UT Arlington. He joined Martin Sprocket & Gear in 1996 as an engineering intern and, after graduating in 1997, has held positions of increasing responsibility with the company, including corporate engineering manager and managing director of Martin's operations in China. He is a member of several professional organizations and committees.
