Pontoon manufacturer Premier Marine announced the appointment of Heinz Wortmann as the new director of operations.
“The expertise and experience Heinz brings is a perfect fit for Premier’s strategy to streamline production for all three of our brands,” Premier president Lori Melbostad said in a statement. “He’ll help us push our production facility to the next level, and we’re thrilled that he’s joined our team.”
Premier recently moved the production of its Weeres and Palm Beach boat brands to the company’s main manufacturing plant in Wyoming, Minn.
“With two additional brands under one roof, we’ll need the experience Heinz has in manufacturing and operations coordination to ensure a smooth transition,” Melbostad said.
Wortmann has more than 20 years of experience in global manufacturing, project management, plant start-ups and transfers, and complex machinery design and management. He specializes in managing the close coordination of technology, operations and supply chains.
