Kevin Collins, VP of Sales and Marketing, has retired from the company after more than 30 years with CPI.

Kevin will remain at CP Industries on a part-time basis as an independent consultant to key accounts across all market segments both domestic and international.

George H. Thompson will take over as the new Vice President of Sales and Marketing to replace Collins. George grew up in Oakmont, Pennsylvania, and has recently returned to Oakmont after spending time in Texas. He is a graduate of Allegheny College and has a son, George III, 15 and a daughter, Libby, 12.

George has a wealth of knowledge from US Steel where he held executive positions in sales, marketing, and manufacturing at various locations throughout the United States. He will be working to align CPI’s commercial activities with our customers’ needs.

Michael Larsen, President of CPI, commented, “These organizational changes combined with our LEAN effort and new product developments over the last four years will ensure that we maintain our leadership position in our end markets and with the customers that we serve.”
