“Jim is a valuable addition to our team, especially in our initiative of expanding and promoting our valve automation capabilities across the country,” said David Turner, W&O Supply’s President and CEO. “W&O supply has successfully performed extensive valve automation systems for major shipyards, and we look forward to having Jim take a leading role in advancing digital control technology in our customer’s vessels.”
