SAF (Southern Aluminum Finishing) has added David Simonsen as the first chief of production at its SAF West facility in Redding, Calif.
Simonsen has overall responsibility for the facility's production operations, including fabrication of aluminum sheet and extrusions. His duties include installation, operation, and maintenance of fabrication equipment, in addition to serving as customer liaison for fabrication and fabrication quoting.
Simonsen's experience includes work as a licensed sheet metal contractor and assistant manager of truss production in the building materials industry.
SAF opened the facility earlier this year to expand its national distribution and production services. The company's West branch offers mill and prefinished extrusions and sheet products; fabrication services include shearing, press brake bending, cut-to-length, drilling, and notching for pan fabrications.
