Tie Down Engineering names chairman and president

Tie Down Engineering announced the appointment of Chuck MacKarvich as chairman of the board, adding that Dean Samuelson will replace MacKarvich as president of the company.

“The promotion is designed to allow me to divest myself of the day-to-day operations of the company and allow me to focus on three key areas,” MacKarvich said in a statement. "These areas include new product development, capacity expansion for growth, including the company's recent acquisition of two new facilities in the Atlanta area, bringing the total up to seven, and deployment of new technology and capital improvements.”

As president, Samuelson will lead Tie Down Engineering in its ongoing efforts to reach strategic goals and objectives. He will oversee the entire organization as it prepares for the significant growth projected during the next few years as a result of the company's recent investments in technology and equipment.

Samuelson has been a long-term customer of Tie Down and has known MacKarvich for more than 25 years.

The company also recently acquired two new facilities in the Atlanta area, bringing the company's total square footage up to 500,000. The buildings, strategically located near the existing five facilities, will allow for more efficient material flow and the capacity expansion needed for future growth, the company said.

Tie Down Engineering achieved ISO 9001 certification for its existing facilities, the company added. ISO 9001 is an internationally recognized standard for the quality management of businesses.

Tie Down Engineering is a provider of fabricated metal components for the marine aftermarket accessory, OEM trailer, manufactured housing, roofing, cable and hardware and custom contract market segments.
