SigmaTron International has announced new additions to its operations and quality personnel at its Elk Grove Village (EGV), Illinois facility.
Dereck Moore has joined the EGV facility as Director of Operations. He previously served as Production Manager at KeyTronic EMS. He was earlier associated with ACDI, Lighting Science and Jabil in a variety of plant, operations and production management positions.
"EGV is growing and we felt the position we've previously classified as manufacturing manager needed to be expanded to encompass the activities of EGV as a whole. Dereck brings 15 years of operations and production management experience that is specifically related to electronics contract manufacturing. He has a track record of implementing programs that improve both performance and efficiency. In short, I see him as someone who will help us add capabilities and processes important to a diversifying customer base, while helping us become a leaner more efficient organization,” said Jim Barnes, EGV's Vice President of Operations.
Dereck has extensive experience in 5S and Lean manufacturing philosophy and has pursued studies toward a degree in Electronic Engineering.

"Marytherese has spent over two decades working in quality management and engineering positions in companies with rigorous quality assurance requirements. She has extensive experience with robust product qualification and acceptance processes, and a track record of driving significant quality improvements. Her experience and expertise are strong assets as we continue to grow and diversify a customer base that requires superior quality," said Barnes.
Marytherese holds a Bachelor of Science degree in mechanical engineering and a Master of Business Adminstration degree from Northern Illinois University.
