It’s the end of an era for Taber Extrusions, as the company is seeing a shift in leadership. Bill Wetmore arrived at Taber in 2008 following nearly 30 years in the aluminum industry. He guided Taber until his recent retirement at the end of 2012. With more than three decades of service in the aluminum industry under his belt, Mr. Wetmore has more than earned his retirement — which he’s currently enjoying in the northern Georgia countryside.
Of course, the show must go on, and Taber Extrusions is proud to announce Allan Annis as its new President. From our official press release:
Taber Extrusions LLC is pleased to announce that Allan Annis has joined our team as Taber’s President. Annis succeeds Bill Wetmore who retired from Taber at the end of 2012. Annis will oversee both of Taber’s manufacturing facilities which are located in Russellville, Arkansas and Gulfport, Mississippi.
Annis comes to Taber from Hydro Aluminum where he was the Vice President of their Southeast Region. In this role, Annis was responsible for the Hydro plants located in St. Augustine, FL and in Belton, SC.
Prior to Hydro, Annis was previously with Rockwell Automation where he served as Director of Lean Enterprise and also as Plant Manager in two of Rockwell’s Power Systems facilities.
Please join us in wishing Bill Wetmore well in his retirement, along with a hearty welcome to Allan Annis. Here’s to a bright future for them both.
