Renishaw Inc., a precision engineering and manufacturing technologies company, announced the appointment of Denis Zayia to the position of president of its U.S.A. operations. The appointment was effective January 1, 2020.
A 33-year industry veteran, Zayia started with Renishaw as coordinate measuring machine business manager in 1995 and became national sales manager for industrial metrology in 2008. His previous role was vice president Sales and Marketing, where he was responsible for Renishaw's line of industrial metrology and additive manufacturing products. He earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Electrical and Electronics Engineering from the University of Illinois at Chicago.
Zayia replaces Howard Salt, who, while turning over the responsibilities of day-to-day operations, will continue to provide valuable service to the organization as senior business manager encoder systems.
“Renishaw has been developing industry-changing products and end-to-end solutions for over 40 years,” Zayia said. “Our first product was a touch-trigger probe, which was developed to solve a manufacturing problem on Concorde engines. Today, we are helping manufacturers driven by the goals of Industry 4.0 with a wide range of technologies including additive, motion control, healthcare, spectroscopy, quality assurance and process control. I am incredibly excited about the opportunity to lead the organization through its next phase of growth.”
Studying, analyzing, and forecasting the North American moldmaking industry for the past 20 years has taught me a lot. It has deepened my understanding of things such as innovation, initiative and industriousness. But the most important thing I have learned, is the meaning of “competition.”
Choosing the right material can greatly affect the profitability and cost of your application.
Even the smallest mold shop can afford an integrated shop floor management system that allows for the management of every business transaction—from quote to cash—and is an invaluable tool for ensuring efficiency.
