Machin will lead teams in charge of production at Red Dot's facilities in Seattle, Wash., Memphis, Tenn., and Ipswich, Suffolk, UK. He also will continue his role as managing director of Red Dot Europe, dividing his time among the company's three manufacturing locations.

"Stephen was hired in 2001 to build Red Dot's manufacturing operation in Europe.

"Now Stephen's focus has been expanded to include Seattle, Memphis, and other international manufacturing endeavors. We expect that he'll do a superb job."

Prior to joining Red Dot, Machin had more than 11 years of managerial experience in HVAC (heating, ventilation, and air-conditioning) equipment manufacturing. He has achieved both an apprenticeship in fabrication and masters degrees in engineering and business, and was named to Red Dot's board of directors in 2006.

Product applications include construction, mining, agriculture, forestry, military, commercial freight, and emergency service vehicles.
