Sundyne names new general manager of Arvada facility
By Riley Simpson16 January 2023
Sundyne, a global manufacturer of pumps and compressors headquartered in Arvada, Colo., has hired Kevin Lance as the general manager of the company’s Arvada facility.
Lance’s new role will manage quoting, procurement, projects, engineering and manufacturing processes for all products at the facility. Sundyne said Lance will work to accelerate the company’s growth by streamlining operations from order to shipment.
Before coming to Sundyne, Lance held a variety of positions, including vice president of operations and general manager, at Fluid and Motion Control, a subsidiary of Emerson.
In his 11 years at his previous company, Lance led all facets of manufacturing operations while focusing on strengthening supply chains, improving delivery times, optimizing inventory turns and enhancing cash flow.
Prior to Fluid Motion and Control, Lance worked as a plant manager, engineering manager and plant controller for the Remington Arms Company, as well as roles in engineering and financial analysis with Xerox.
“[Lance’s] diverse background in finance and operations and his proven track record with reputable global companies provides a perfect fit with our needs, and we’re looking forward to working with [him] to enhance and further streamline our Arvada manufacturing operations,” said Sundyne COO Mark Sefcik.
“Several items are aligning that make this a perfect time to join Sundyne,” Lance said. “The company has a tremendous reputation for highly engineered products. There is a healthy backlog of orders, a strong focus on the supply chain, and I’m particularly impressed with the senior management team. Each of these factors suggest that Sundyne is poised for significant growth, and I think my experiences fit well with Sundyne’s needs.”
Lance’s hire is just the most recent for Sundyne, which brought on Victoria Moshashvili as its director of corporate development and strategic analysis in September 2022, in addition to announcing two key executive appointments last March.
