CPV Manufacturing New Leadership Team

The leadership change in October has set the company on the pathway toward transformation and strategic growth in the years to come. The new management team led by David London – President and CEO; Kelly Tomlin – CFO & Executive Vice President; has been hard at work restructuring our 103-year-old company. There has been a cultural transformation from what was once a family enterprise primarily selling to the government to a thriving corporate business selling its products all over the world across multiple verticals.

During this transformation, at the end of 2017, the management team met and agreed on a set of initiatives and goals for 2018. One of the goals is coming to fruition this spring with ISO 9001-2015 certification. We view this as a tremendous achievement and are proud of all the team leaders who executed this challenge and made it happen.

We continue to invest capital in our facility and, more importantly, our staff. We recognize our future success is dependent on our exceptional employees. For this reason, we continue to recruit the best and the brightest to develop, innovate and manufacture the safest, most reliable products available in the world today.

At CPV, our heritage is long and distinguished. We take pride in our past contribution to the NASA Space Program, including the Gemini and Apollo programs, just as today we are proud to be a major supplier to the United States Navy. Combined with Shipbuilding, Petrochemical, Industrial Gas and expansion into the Chlorine and Pharmaceutical industries, CPV Manufacturing stands poised to make 2018 another landmark year.
