George is the Director of Operations of the Portland, OR facility and is the Director of Research and Development. George is also a former shareholder of AGC Heat Transfer, Inc. (AGC). He brings years of experience in a broad range of technical areas such as process design, computational heat transfer, rheology, and hard tooling design and development. He has implemented a R&D program that gives AGC the in-house capability using the latest CAD tools and CNC machines to bring a conceptual plate design through to a finished product. This internal capability gives AGC the ability to develop superior, innovative products in a timely manner. He has also developed a plate calculation software program based on a finite differencing routine that allows our sales engineers to model the heat transfer and fluid dynamics of viscous highly non-Newtonian products with great precision. George has strived to give AGC customers the best service available by ensuring that our sales and engineering team have the best tools available to design heat transfer systems. With his experience at AGC and with former employers George has developed a management philosophy of leading by example that he applies to the operations in the Western Factory.
