OC-based company chief named to statewide board

Lori Luchak-Olund, president of Miles Fiberglass, a composites fabricator and manufacturer based in Southeast Portland and Oregon City, last week was named a statewide board member to the Oregon Manufacturing Extension Partnership.

OMEP represents top small and medium manufacturing companies around Oregon. The nonprofit organization aims to helps Oregon manufacturers grow through innovation and respond to the challenges of competing in an increasingly global economy.

Founded in 1963, Miles Fiberglass makes products ranging from military and rail components to RV and wind-turbine parts. Cliff Stites, owner of Cabinet Door Service, a Salem-based manufacturer established in 1989, also was named to the OMEP board last week.

“Lori and Cliff bring extensive manufacturing backgrounds to OMEP’s state board and will be integral additions to our team of skilled industry professionals,” said Chris Scherer, OMEP president. “With such knowledgeable and dedicated leaders on our board, they will help guide OMEP to help Oregon’s manufacturing community to continue to grow and prosper in the coming years.”

OMEP receives state, federal and private funding to assist manufacturers in transforming the way they do business. It teaches company leaders new strategies for innovation, product development, engaging work forces, managing supply chains and enhancing sustainability/efficiency efforts.
