Sparta, TN – June 20, 2016– The Moore Company, a diverse group of leading manufacturing companies, is pleased to announce the appointment of Douglas Linder as the Division President of Moeller Marine Products, effective June 20, 2016. Most recently, Linder was the Vice President of Operations for CRANE Pumps & Systems Division, where he managed four physical plant locations in Ohio and abroad. In addition to delivering significant YOY Incremental Operating Profit, his factories achieved exceptional workforce retention as a result of bottom-up employee engagement. Prior to Crane, Linder was with Borgwarner Thermal Systems in North Carolina. During his ten-plus years with Borgwarner, he held the position of Senior Manufacturing Operations & Engineering Manager and of Operations Manager for three divisions: in North Carolina, South Carolina, and the United Kingdom. His early career comprises four years in the Energy and Engine Division of Delphi Automotive Systems in Flint, Michigan. Linder holds a BS from Purdue University School of Technology. According to The Moore Company CEO Dana Barlow, Linder is the ideal successor to Moeller Division President Gary Eich, who is retiring at the end of June. “Moeller is the number one rotational molder in the recreational marine industry and the 14th largest across all industries nationwide. Our success is a function of quality, integrity, and service. As we continue to expand our product offerings to the recreational marine and other industries, we need a leader who will propel us to even greater achievements. Doug combines ethical management with an outstanding background in manufacturing operations, and I am very pleased to welcome him on board," Barlow explains.
Moeller Marine Products has spent decades developing OEM fuel tanks for the fuel systems of the largest boat manufacturers in the country. To meet the requirements of the 2011 EPA Regulations (40 CFR 1060 Control of Evaporative Emissions for New and In-use Non-Road and Stationery Equipment), Moeller engineers developed a two-layer barrier tank with cross-linked polyethylene on the outside and an inner layer of nylon. Since 2009, Moeller has sold more than 230,000 barrier tanks.
Moeller Marine Products, a worldwide leader in rotationally-molded fuel and water systems, is proud to announce its recent ISO 9001:2008 re-certification. The re-certification process consisted of a comprehensive two-day audit to make sure that Moeller processes continue to conform to the ISO model of quality management.
2015 has been a banner year for Moeller Marine, beginning with a highly-publicized event to celebrate the company’s 25th anniversary at their Sparta, TN facility. The company has expanded sales and marketing efforts, re-designed and improved their line of portable tanks, and introduced new diurnal components.
Moeller developed the two layer tank to meet the permeation requirements, and several companies developed valving, carbon canisters, and related hardware to meet the diurnal requirements with fugitive emissions. For the builder, this created complexity and cost (approximately $500 per vessel).
Whether designing and testing prototype boats or building small volume production runs, speed of delivery is essential to the marketplace. Moeller Marine Products is up to the challenge with its new aluminum tank line. The Sparta, TN company can produce aluminum fuel tanks in a fraction of the time it takes to manufacture polyethylene tanks.
Moeller Marine Products, a worldwide leader in fuel and water systems, is excited to announce the appointment of Brunger Export as the new international manufacturers’ representative group for the Moeller Marine product line.
The ISO 9001:2008 standard is a quality management system which helps ensure that customers get consistent products and services of superior quality. Part of the ISO 9000 family of quality management systems standards developed by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO), ISO 9001:2008 encompasses eight management principles.
