AIDA-America, Qualtek Manufacturing Inc. announce leadership changes

November 1, 2016 - AIDA-America, Dayton, Ohio, and Qualtek Manufacturing Inc., Colorado Springs, Colo., USA are jointly announcing leadership changes within their respective organizations.

Troy Roberts, current President/COO of AIDA-America will be transitioning to the position of CEO at Qualtek Manufacturing, effective December 1st, 2016. Mr. Roberts’ decision to leave AIDA-America was prompted by the opportunity at Qualtek and his strong desire to be closer to family and the great outdoors. While Troy will be missed, he is leaving AIDA-America as the North American market leader of metalforming suppliers and in the very capable hands of the 200 associates that he has worked with over the past 21 years. In his new role at Qualtek, Troy will lead Qualtek’s team in achieving its goal to become the premier stamping, heat treating and metal finishing supplier to aerospace, medical device and automotive manufacturers.

Pat Ambuske, AIDA-America’s current Vice President of Operations, will succeed Mr. Roberts as President/CEO, effective December 1st, 2016. Mr. Ambuske joined AIDA-America in 2001 and has held various leadership roles over planning, engineering, purchasing and manufacturing functions during his 15 year tenure at the company. Pat has played a key role in much of AIDA-America’s recent success. With Pat’s guidance, the local engineering team has experienced significant growth. He has helped sharpen their focus on solutions designed for North American stampers, specifically applying AIDA servo technology to a wide range of products. Significant plant and manufacturing operations expansions have taken place under Pat’s leadership, positioning AIDA-America as the largest and most advanced manufacturer of stamping presses in North America. Pat will continue to build on AIDA’s success as the leader in servo press technology. As a team, AIDA-America will continue to push forward the policies of constant product improvement and deep partnership with customers to create the most effective production systems. AIDAAmerica will also maintain the standard of excellence in customer service and on-going support. 

Both Troy Roberts and Pat Ambuske will be attending the Fabtech 2016 Las Vegas tradeshow, taking place November 16th through 18th at the Las Vegas Convention Center, and will be greeting visitors, customers, industry professionals and all others in AIDA-America’s booth, C17024. They encourage all interested parties to visit the booth to personally discuss this exciting new chapter for both Qualtek and AIDA-America.
