Industrial manufacturer C&C Manufacturing has tapped David Bradford as its new president and COO.
The Michigan-based company specializes in manufacturing landfill compactors, car crushers, metal bailing and airport snow removal equipment. Customers include Toyota, Tesla, Ford and Boeing, according to its website.
Bradford most recently served as operations manager at Amazon's first Iowa fulfillment center, after a 22-year career as a manufacturing executive at John Deere, including as director of global tractor and loader fulfillment.
The new COO joins C&C Manufacturing as it pushes to grow its manufacturing business, as well as its parts and services arm, Chairman Salvatore Calvino said in a statement.
“David’s depth of manufacturing expertise, leadership experience and strong track record of success makes him the ideal executive to lead C&C Manufacturing in this next phase of growth," Calvino said.
