Hernandez said, “My job is to oversee the manufacturing process and make sure that production lines are running smoothly and efficiently. Hardware Products continued investment in state-of-the-art spring manufacturing equipments, systems, and processes helps me succeed in meeting targets, both for the company and our customers.” Jaqueline Quiles is the new director of clerical services, and she is in charge of the SpringLink inventory management program, along with performing clerical duties at HPC.
