Powering Progress: Operational Technology Spotlight

When you imagine Greenheck Group as a company, you may think of words like “manufacturing,” “automation,” or “air movement,” for example. But what’s behind all these first-thought functions? How have we remained connected as we advanced through our near 80-year history? Add “technology” to that word map.

A group of 26 talented operational technology team members are responsible for systems across four domains: engineering, planning, manufacturing, and logistics. Together, they plan, design, build, buy, implement, and maintain the technology in these areas. One main goal is to collaborate with internal teams on developing long-range operational technology strategies to support continued growth.

Over FY24, the operational technology team supported projects such as the integration of the new Workday platform, the CVI plant startup in Tulsa with an automated paint line, the PRV upblast automation project, the Axial Trumpf automation startup, the rollout of new engineering design tools to the entire enterprise, connecting to and gathering data from hundreds of automation solutions, and the implementation of SAP at the ATU business unit, just to name a few.

As technology advances rapidly in manufacturing, it is critical that we retain our leadership position. A transformational upgrade called MES (Manufacturing Execution System) is currently in progress to begin this year. This advancement will ensure our technological systems are equipped to support continued growth. Because the OT team is involved in projects across the organization, an immense amount of communication, teamwork, and trust is required to keep Greenheck Group ahead of the curve when it comes to technology advancement.

Integrity, respect, and accountability are just a few of our team values, in addition to company core values. These keep everyone focused on the big picture—supporting Greenheck Group team members along the pursuit of excellence.

  • Engineering – product and parts design; transfer of data to manufacturing equipment
