MANKATO, MN -- Winland Electronics has completed a restructuring of its manufacturing and operations departments. The EMS company promoted Jeffrey Ocker to director of operations and Steve Trnka to director of manufacturing.

Ocker had been manager of manufacturing test engineering since 2006. Trnka has spent eight years at Winland as a program manager and strategic account manager.

The moves are intended to support aggressive EMS growth objectives and also better align the company to its 2008 and 2009 initiatives in program management, supply chain management, quality management and information systems, Winland said in a press release.

The restructuring follows the recent hiring of Warren Mitchell as executive supply chain leader.

This EMS market condition will permit American OEMs (the EMS industry refers to OEMs as customers) to have more EMS pathways to choose from. Now more than ever, such EMS assignments will require deeper investigation relating to the OEMs’ evaluation of manufacturing strategies.
