EnPro Industries Inc. announced Tuesday that Dale Herold has been named division president of Palmyra-based Garlock Sealing Technologies LLC. The move follows the resignation of Paul Baldetti, who left the company.
Herold joined EnPro in August 2008 as vice president of continuous improvement, where he was responsible for revitalizing the company’s lean manufacturing program and supply chain initiatives. He was also responsible for implementing a companywide commercial excellence program for improving the way the company’s operations take products to market and interact with customers.
Prior to joining EnPro, Herold was a regional vice president at BlueLinx Corp., where he was responsible for operations and sales. He previously worked in a variety of manufacturing and marketing roles at Consolidated Container Corp. and earlier, at General Electric Corp.
Since joining the company in September 2003, Baldetti has helped Garlock establish a new strategic direction that has led to the growth of the business and improvements in its performance, the company said. Under his leadership, the company underwent a $30 million modernization project at the Wayne County plant.
"Garlock’s performance has benefited from Paul’s hard work on the modernization project and on the many other improvements that have been undertaken during his tenure at Garlock," said Steve Macadam, EnPro president and chief executive officer in a statement. "We appreciate his efforts and wish him well, and we look forward to a smooth transition of his responsibilities to Dale."
Garlock ranked No. 16 on the most recent Rochester Business Journal list of manufacturers with 521 local workers.
