Nelson Sanchez, RoMan Manufacturing’s Chief Operating Officer, announced that Chad Schondelmayer has been appointed as Director of Manufacturing Operations. Chad assumes the role as a third generation member of the family owned business founded in 1980.

Prior to his new role, Chad spent 11 years at RoMan Engineering Services providing weld consulting services and program launch support at Ford, General Motors, and Fiat Chrysler.  “Chad brings a wealth of Automation and Lean manufacturing experience to his new position,” said Sanchez. “An additional level of expertise to the continual process improvement of our manufacturing systems.”

Commenting on Chad’s appointment, Robert Roth, RoMan’s CEO said: “As a family business I am pleased to see the third generation involved, however, Chad did not get this position because he is a family member. He earned it by putting in the time and always delivering more than expected in every assignment during the previous 11 years.

Three members of RoMan’s executive leadership team are second generation family members; Chad is the first one to join this team representing the family’s third generation.”

He holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Welding Engineering from Ferris State University’s nationally recognized Welding Engineering Technology program.
