In a wave of new key executives being announced by Braidy Industries to lead the company forward in the construction of its aluminium rolling mill in Kentucky, US, Stephen Miller has been announced as Chief Procurement Officer.
With over 200 years of industrial and management experience between the executive management team, Miller will play an important part in the company’s newest venture.
No stranger to executive roles in procurement, Miller worked for Cummins Engine Company for 20 years, making his way through the ranks to become a Director of Capital Procurement.
Upon leaving Cummins, Miller became a Senior Director at ArvinMeritor Ltd., a leading global supplier of drivetrain, mobility and aftermarket solutions for industrial markets and commercial vehicles.
Following a brief stint at ArvinMeritor, Miller moved onto leading aluminium trading manufacturer, Wabash National Corporation. Here, he acted as both Vice President and General Manager of the industrial purchasing consortium.
With Miller having significant experience in his area of expertise, Braidy’s CEO Craig Bouchard is confident in his new team.
"We are delighted to bring this unprecedented collection of skills to bear on the Braidy Industries mission, as we deliver quality aluminium products and ultra-high strength alloys produced in Eastern Kentucky to our customers in the North America, South America, Europe and Asia. Our cost structure allows a global footprint.”
Joining Miller on the new executive team are experts in Construction, Engineering, Manufacturing, Human Resources, Marketing, Governmental Relations, Sales, IT and Administration.
Expected to be built by 2020, the Aluminium Mill will cost $1.3bn, providing 1000 construction jobs in the process and 550 advanced manufacturing jobs once completed.
