T-H Marine Supplies Inc. said it has hired two new employees to take on roles in the company's corporate leadership.

Bryan Layton of Hunstville, Ala., where the company is based, will be corporate quality director and Chuck Loeffelholz of Madison, Ala., will be corporate operations manager.

"We're making big moves to grow our business in the right ways," T-H Marine CEO Jeff Huntley said in a statement. "It's exciting to bring such high-quality people to our organization and it will be even more exciting to see the extent of their impact on our organization to the larger fishing and boating community."

The company said Layton and Loeffelholz bring extensive skill sets. Using their backgrounds in manufacturing, development, and engineering, they will contribute to processes, quality controls, and more to strengthen the T-H Marine brand.

"We're thrilled about the future and the dramatic growth we have been experiencing," Huntley added. "Success is always a moving target, but we're hopeful about how this helps us usher in even better quality marine products and improved experiences for our customers."

Prior to joining T-H Marine, Layton worked as a technical director, where he led the development of computer-aided dispatch and records management software products for public safety organizations. He also took a two-year overseas assignment to open an offshore development office in Shanghai, China.

Prior to living in China, he led development of engineering software products used in the design, modeling, and construction of process plants, power plants, ships, and off-shore oil rigs.

Layton has a bachelor’s degree in design engineering from Brigham Young University. He has an MBA from the University of Alabama.

The company said Loeffelholz always had a love for boating. For several years he worked the docks and repair shops of Iowa’s Saylorville Marina. When the lake was no longer big enough, he joined the Navy’s nuclear power program and had a 30-year Naval career in submarines and surface ships.

Before coming to T-H Marine, Loeffelholz worked with several medical device and pharmaceutical manufacturing companies, where he brought new manufacturing equipment online, optimized internal processes and improved product quality.
