David Wernsing was appointed to General Manager of Union Iron in late February of this year, but his career in the industry started more than 25 years ago.
In the early 1990s, Mr Wernsing started with GSI in their grain dryer division. After some time on the plant floor and in production management, he moved to the engineering department as a technician and eventually became a product manager. In the late 1990s he moved to GSI’s international sales division.
Following a short break for academic study, Mr Wernsing then went to Brock as strategic accounts manager and soon after accepted an offer to be sales manager at Union Iron. AGI had just acquired Union Iron. He then spent a few years at Union Iron and then accepted a position with AGI as director of international sales.
In 2015, he became director of North American sales for our newly formed commercial division. In early 2016 Mr Wernsing was asked to be general manager at Union Iron. Mr Wernsing is firmly of the belief that he currently possesses sufficient “understanding of Union Iron’s people, products and customers to build and support an effective team that will manage this business successfully.”
