Pace Industries announces leadership changes
Pace Industries announces the recent leadership changes at the Airo and Harrison Divisions. These divisions are cornerstones of the Pace network that consists of 12 divisions, 21 facilities and over 3,500 associates across the U.S. and Mexico. Pace Industries is North America’s largest aluminum die casting company and also provides magnesium, zinc high pressure die casting, and plastic injection molding.
Effective immediately, Marshall Haines, division president of Airo Division for the last 2 years will be transferring to the Harrison Division, located in Harrison, Arkansas, to serve as their new division president. Haines has had multiple leadership roles for Pace Industries since joining the team 12 years ago, ranging from division president to being the pioneer of the current purchasing department where he served as the VP of Purchasing. In his time at Airo, Haines continued to build on the tradition of excellence and performance at Airo. Most recently, that division supported a major customer launch of a new engine platform, the first major change in the engine for that customer in many years. Haines continued to develop his team and supported them too, while returning the highest and most successful performance levels in the last 10 years.
As Haines leaves for Harrison, Mike McDoniel, a 20-year Pace veteran, will be filling the position of division president of the Airo Division, located in Latrobe, Pennsylvania. Mike has served in multiple capacities for Pace, ranging from division president of our B&C Division, sales and account management for our largest customers, and VP of Purchasing. Mike recently helped to further foster the growth of the purchasing department that was started by his predecessor, Haines. The hard work and contributions made by them to the purchasing department has provided a solid foundation as a crucial department of Pace Industries, helping to save millions of dollars for the company over the past few years.
