Cummins names manufacturing officer


Follow The Republic:


Cummins has named 25-year company veteran Stan Woszczynski its chief manufacturing officer to replace Jim Lyons, who has retired.

The company said it wants to employ Woszczynski’s manufacturing expertise to improve its supply chain.

To that end, Woszczynski was named a member of the Cummins Supply Chain Transformation Leadership Team. He is one of about 50 vice presidents in the company, a Cummins spokesman said.

Woszczynski, who has worked in manufacturing for more than 33 years, said he was excited and honored by the new role.

“I find that manufacturing serves a critical role in our efforts to transform our supply chains and is unique in that it brings together a mix of people, products and processes to serve customers,” Woszczynski said in a news release.

“As we continue the supply chain transformation journey, manufacturing has a significant role in accelerating our focus on manufacturing process excellence and standardization,” said Lisa Yoder, vice president, corporate supply chain. “I am delighted to have Stan in this role.”

Woszczynski’s new responsibilities will include manufacturing strategy, health and safety and advanced manufacturing.

He holds a bachelor’s degree in mechanical engineering from Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology, a master’s in materials engineering from Case Western Reserve University and an MBA from Indiana Wesleyan University. He joined Cummins in 1988 to manage facilities.

Woszczynski serves on the Manufacturing Leadership Board of the Associations Corporate Executive Board consortium and as active director for the Komatsu Cummins Engine Co. board, Indiana Automotive Council and the Rose-Hulman Varsity “R” Club.

Woszczynski, an East Chicago native, lives in and is based in Columbus. He and his wife, Laura, have two grown children.

Lyons retired this summer after 40 years with Cummins. He was part of the team in the late 1980s that suggested the company build its new midrange engine at the former Walesboro components plant, which had been idle for years and now produces the 6.7-liter engine for the Ram pickup.
