WINNIPEG, Man. — Trailer manufacturer Arne’s Welding has announced Gerald (Butch) Bouchard has been named president.
The announcement was made by principal owner Doug Harvey. Bouchard replaces Bob Munro, who recently retired.
“We thank Bob for his tremendous leadership at Arne’s over the past four years and wish him well in his much deserved retirement,” said Harvey. “Bob led the company through a change of ownership phase and introduced a positive culture of process improvement at Arne’s using the principles of LEAN Management.”
Bouchard brings to the position “extensive hands-on experience in the gravel and construction industries,” Harvey announced.
He spent 25 years at Midland Manufacturing, where he launched his career as welder, building trailers on the shop floor. In 2001, he was promoted to the position of general manager at Midland and handled the day-to-day operations of the company.
At Arne’s, Bouchard aims to profitably grow the business.
