The President of Futura Industries Corporation, Susan Mooney Johnson, announced her retirement effective January 13, 2017.
She will be succeeded by Jared Bringhurst. Jared has been at Futura Industries for 19 years, most recently as the Vice President of Operations. Under Jared’s Operations’ leadership, Futura Industries successfully rose to the challenge of producing the highest quality products and on-time delivery in the extrusion industry, while experiencing significant growth in revenue year after year.
Jared has overseen a dramatic increase in capacity through the installations of numerous successful Capital equipment projects, including the 3450 Ton 9″ Presezzi press, and most recently a complete overhaul of the Anodizing facility.
Jared joined Futura Industries on a night time press crew, while earning his degree in Manufacturing Engineering Technology from Weber State University. He rose quickly through the manufacturing organization, holding leadership positions in New Products Engineering, Fabrication, Quality and multiple other areas. He has excelled in every role. Jared is well prepared for this transition, as he and Sue have worked together on this transition for the last 5-6 years.
Sue has been with Futura Industries for 22 years, beginning in 1995 as President.
The hallmark of her leadership has been the transformation of Futura into the company it is today. Futura was named the Utah Best Employer thirteen years in a row. It has twice been selected as Manufacturer of the Year by the UMA. It has won numerous safety and employee awards and recognitions.
Under Sue’s leadership the company opened an on-site medical clinic- to serve as the primary care facility for all employees and their families. She oversaw the tremendous expansion of market share in core market segments, such as floor covering, as well as the company’s entry into the TSLOT market.
We are grateful for your friendships, associations and your business. Futura never forgets that it is in serving our customers with excellence and consistency that leads to our mutual success.
Please take the opportunity to reach out to Jared Bringhurst to welcome him into his new role at Futura Industries. He will continue to oversee Futura’s performance and dedication to its customers and team members.
