Years ago, Horner was outgrowing it’s Morris Street warehouse, and Machining Services was moving into the Fan building. With Horner’s expansion a new warehouse down the road was established. This 90K sq. ft. warehouse now includes the Toshiba Warehouse, The Toshiba MOD shop, Asset Management for Customers, and our corporate storage. Tim will oversee all these operations. The Toshiba Warehouse ships over 17K motors per year, and the MOD shop will be modifying over 100 motors per month. Tim is excited to take on the challenge and his expectation is take care of the employees, improve the workplace, find efficiencies that effect Horner’s bottom line and increase quality for our customers.
Tim grew up in Franklin, IN where he played football, soccer and wrestled. He enlisted in the Air Force when he was 17, and went into basic training in 1997.
