Maxwell Technologies, Inc. announced that it has promoted George Kreigler III to the new position of Chief Operating Officer (COO), with overall responsibility for the company’s operations in the U.S., Europe and Asia.

Kreigler joined Maxwell as Vice President, Operations, in 2006, and was promoted to Senior Vice President in 2007. He has more than 30 years of high technology operations and business management experience, including supervision of multiple large-scale offshore manufacturing facilities. David Schramm, Maxwell’s President and Chief Executive Officer, said that creation of the new COO position reflects the need to strengthen coordination and management of the company’s increasingly complex worldwide operations.

"George has exhibited tremendous leadership and operational savvy in moving BOOSTCAP ultracapacitor assembly offshore, expanding electrode production capacity in the U.S. and driving cost savings through improved product design, procurement and logistics," Schramm said. "As COO, he is charged with unifying functional organizations globally and identifying and exploiting synergies across all of our operations."
