Forest City Gear Adds Process Engineer to Operations Team

Joe Konetski

Forest City Gear has added Joe Konetski as Process Engineer to its "Cut Teeth Only" operations team, a resource dedicated to meeting fast-growing demand for the completion of gears made from a customer's gear blank.

Konetski joins the Cut Teeth Only Team after serving as a set-up technician for a wide variety of gear cutting and grinding machines at Forest City Gear. He is also a graduate of Forest City Gear's four-year Apprenticeship Program, conducted in cooperation with the Rock River Valley Tooling and Machining Association (RRVTMA). "The program is intensive, requiring 8,000 hours of on-the-job training, and 604 hours of related training at nearby Rock Valley College, and is the ideal preparation for Konetski's new role," said John Cochran, the Cut Teeth Only Team's Lead.

"We have cut lead times and streamlined production on Cut Teeth Only projects to meet unprecedented high demand with the help of a dedicated team of process engineers who take ownership of a project from the P.O. through scheduling and production," said Cochran. "Joe's typical of our team: knowledgeable, experienced and, above all, able to wear a multitude of hats."
