Oak Creek, Wisconsin – July 8, 2019 – Superior Die Set Corporation President and CEO Frank Janiszewski announced today that the company has hired a new CEO, Martin Girga, to lead the organization. Over the past 96 years, the many employees of Superior, under the leadership of three generations of Janiszewskis, have made Superior a global leader in the industry. This pivotal change will position Superior, its clients and employees for continued greatness.
“We are now at a critical point in an increasingly competitive and complex business climate,” Janiszewski said today as he addressed the company. “To continue to meet our customers’ requirements and harvest this very strong market, my brother Casey and I have made an important decision concerning the future of Superior Die Set. After more than 40 years at Superior, we are turning the top post over to someone with exceptional outside experience to take the company to the next level of operational execution, commercial growth and financial strength.”
Janiszewski went on to say, “Starting today, we will be passing the baton to Martin for all day-to-day business responsibilities. Casey and I will remain the majority shareholders of the company and will be cochairmen of the Board of Directors.”
Girga brings a valuable background of vision, leadership and process improvement with world class companies such as Danaher, ITT Industrial Process and Orchid Orthopedic. Most recently, he was the Vice President and General Manager of Giddings and Lewis in Fond du Lac, Wisconsin. “We have no doubt that Martin will help us all advance the Superior Die Set Corporation to new levels of performance that you and our customers deserve,” Frank and Casey Janiszewski noted. “Martin brings us the skill set and passion to accomplish this and his hands-on style is a perfect match for our long-standing culture.”
About the road ahead and next steps, Girga added, “Superior Die Set is well positioned for continued growth, and with the support of the leadership team we plan to build on the existing foundation, focusing on customer value through operational and commercial efficiencies. My immediate focus will be to meet with customers, suppliers and our team members to better understand our customers’ and organizational needs. I look forward to working with the Board and all of our employees to bring the company to next level.”
