Cano Brings Extensive Experience in Manufacturing, Production and Rigging to Company
SIGNAL HILL, CA, OCTOBER 15, 2012 — Adaptive Technologies Group, comprising Allen Products, ATM Fly-ware and Adaptive Video Walls and Displays, and a premier developer of state-of-the-art rigging and mounting solutions for a wide range of audio and video applications, has named Ramon Cano as the company’s Production Manager.
In his new role, Cano will oversee both of Adaptive’s California manufacturing and assembly operations that produce the Allen, Adaptive and ATM-Fly-Ware branded products as well as all large-scale custom projects. Cano will also negotiate purchases and contracts with outsource vendors and handle all the logistics. Cano will be based in the Adaptive headquarters, located in Signal Hill, CA.
Prior to joining Adaptive, Cano served in the demanding and competitive metal furniture manufacturing industry, where he blended his extensive IT background with production control systems and manufacturing operations.
He is also keenly familiar with Adaptive’s rigging discipline as he served in the U.S. Army for eight years, six of which were in the 101st Airbourne Division - Air Assault Group, rigging (slinging) both personnel and equipment from airborne helicopters.
“Since acquiring ATM Fly-Ware and, later, a California manufacturing facility, Adaptive has searched for a professional with a blend of experience to bring all the different elements of Adaptive’s unique operations together. Cano brings that talent, which will result in updating our production controls, improving our scheduling, manufacturing efficiency and purchasing power,” says Paul Allen, president, Adaptive Technologies Group. “We are very excited to have Cano join our team at this time. He brings several years of solid manufacturing and production control experience to the table that will undoubtedly improve the predictability of Adaptive’s production, as well as making our operations more cost effective.”
During his off time, Cano enjoys riding through the beautiful Southern California countryside on his Harley-Davidson Road King. He also participates in local charity rides.
