Methods Machine Tools, Inc. has announced two key management appointments. Jerry Rex has been named President and CEO, and Dale Hedberg has been promoted to Vice President of Operations.

"With Rex's strong skill set, machine tool industry knowledge and energetic management approach, we are looking forward to moving the company ahead through his continued leadership, positioning Methods as the industry's leading supplier of machine tool technology and automation for our customers throughout North America," said Scott McIver, Methods Chairman and third generation owner.

He has also served for many years as a member of The Association for Manufacturing Technology (AMT) Board and as Chairman of the Board of Directors of AMT until April 2016. He has carried the CMTSE designation since 1997 and remains an active committee member.

Spanning 40 years, Rex's manufacturing career began with a machinist position at GE Locomotive and he rose from roles in engineering and applications to production and sales management, and executive positions at manufacturers and machine tool organizations. Before joining Methods, he served as executive vice president of Concept Machine Tools. Prior to that, Rex was president of Hegman Machinery, LLC, a Morris Group Company, from 2013 to 2015. For the 20 years prior he held roles including president of Morris South, vice president of Gosiger, Inc. and regional manager of J&H Machine Tools.

Dale Hedberg, as Vice President of Operations, is now responsible for all of Methods' operations including production, shipping / receiving, inside sales, trade shows and continuous improvement. A machine tool industry veteran, Hedberg has been a Methods' employee for nearly 20 years in engineering positions, and most recently as product manager for a high performance CNC machining line. Prior to Methods, Hedberg was production manager at a tooling systems company for 10 years.

"Dale's proven skills for strategically managing Methods' product lines and a deep knowledge of Methods' infrastructure, as well as his extensive machine tool experience, made his promotion to Vice President of Operations a logical one," said Jerry Rex.
