The first week of November 2018 Mr. Claude Hutchens (General Kinematics’ Foundry Market Director & International Sales), was voted on to the CISA (Casting Industry Suppliers Association) Board of Directors. This will be Mr. Hutchen’s second time on the CISA board in his General Kinematics career, with his last term ending in 2011. When asked about his return to the board, Claude remarked: “I am excited to be back. It’s a great opportunity to educate and improve the casting community.” Mr. Hutchens brings a great deal of insight and in-depth knowledge of the metal casting industry to the board and will be a great addition to the association.
General Kinematics would like to congratulate Mr. Hutchens on this accomplishment and looks forward to seeing the impact he will have on CISA and the metalcasting industry in the future.
