A leading supplier of braiding equipment, Wardwell, has announced the retirement of Steven J. Elderkin and the appointment of Scott A. Hunter. Both announcements were made by company President John Tomaz, at Wardwell’s headquarters in Central Falls, RI.
Elderkin’s retirement, effective December 2017, comes after 44.5 years at Wardwell and several positions. In the last 20 years, his roles included supervisor of assembly and customer service technician. Tomaz said, ”From the beginning, Steven has been a tremendous asset to our company. Every part of business that he’s been involved in, has been improved. We’ll certainly miss having him around.” Now, Elderkin is looking forward to spending time with his grandchildren and enjoying the warm Floridian weather.
Hunter is Wardwell’s new Sales Engineer. In this position, he will be responsible for equipment sales throughout North America. Mentioning this new addition Tomaz commented, “Scott is an experienced professional who brings the necessary skills and knowledge, having previously worked in the wire and cable industry. He will undoubtedly be an asset.” A three-year stint at Amaral Automation Associates is part of Hunter’s experience.
