Working in conjunction with W&O Supply’s subsidiary, Valve Automation & Control, Jim will be responsible for launching and overseeing the company’s automation expertise to a nationwide audience.

“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.”

Prior to joining W&O Supply, Baur was vice president of Marine for Wartsila North America.

W&O Supply also hired Jenny Brandies as the new director of material management. In this role, Brandies will manage the purchase and distribution of materials for W&O Supply’s customers and its 13 warehouses across the country.

Brandies will oversee the materials management department, which plans and distributes approximately 30,000 skus utilizing a central distribution center in Jacksonville.

Brandies was a solutions development manager for several years with TNT Logistics, working extensively with BMW in both their manufacturing and aftermarket parts distribution business. Her work with BMW was primarily in the supply chain management area, where she was responsible for implementing material planning, parts distribution and transportation management solutions.
