John Mazock VP of Manufacturing for Seegrid Helps Develop Leading Robotic Industrial Trucks
Pittsburgh, PA -- (SBWIRE) -- 04/22/2013 -- John Mazock has held the position as vice president of manufacturing at Seegrid for two and a half years. According to Chief Administrative Officer, David Heilman, “Mazock joining the Seegrid team was a strategic move. With his vast experience in lean manufacturing, Six Sigma program management, and quality systems, he has strengthened our manufacturing process and developed industry leading quality and manufacturing teams.”
Mazock has over twenty years of experience in manufacturing management. Prior to Seegrid, he was director of operations at L-3 Communications, Brashear Division. He also served as director of manufacturing for Matthew’s International, iDL Division. During his tenure as production manager for Sony, Mazock received the Sony Gold award for his participation in the startup of the first synchronous CRT and television final assembly manufacturing system, and was recognized with the Leads with Action award. Mazock holds a B.S. in Electrical Engineering from University of Pittsburgh and is a Six Sigma champion.
Mazock commented, “While other sensor technologies in the material handling industry are at their limits of what they can do, Seegrid’s vision technology has limitless potential. As tasks and applications for robotic vehicles evolve and become more challenging, Seegrid has the technical foundation to meet the challenge. From the moment I understood Seegrid’s vision-guided product, I knew that it was something really big…a game changer in the industry. I had experience with AGVs in manufacturing operations and had abandoned them due to their cost and lack of flexibility. The Seegrid system provides the value of an AGV at a fraction of the cost, and without the loss of the flexibility that lean operations require.”
