SAGE names Alan McLenaghan vice president of operations
SAGE officials announced that Dr. Alan McLenaghan has joined the company as vice president of operations. McLenaghan will bring his extensive experience in glass manufacturing to SAGE's new 320,000-square-foot, high-volume manufacturing facility in Faribault, Minn., according to a June 29 release. He will support the organization in the completion of the facility and be responsible for safety, supply chain, MIS and manufacturing operations. The electrochromic glass manufacturing facility is expected to begin commercial production in early 2013.
McLenaghan comes to SAGE from Verallia North America, a Saint-Gobain group company headquartered in Muncie, Ind. McLenaghan began his 15-year career with Saint-Gobain in 1998, when he led construction of the company's float glass manufacturing plant in Eggborough, North Yorkshire, England. That facility won the UK "Best Factory" award from the Cranfield School of Management in 2005, when McLenaghan served as site director. Prior to Saint-Gobain, he spent three years with DuPont and seven with ICI in both the UK and U.S.
