Ross Anderson has resigned as head of equipment supplier Milacron Inc.‘s Machinery Technologies North America division.

 

In December, Anderson was part of a top management reorganization that saw him move from chief financial officer of Batavia, Ohio-based Milacron to lead the machinery technologies business.

 

Anderson had worked for the company since 1989.

 

According to Milacron, Anderson’s former subordinates will report directly to CEO Dave Lawrence.

 

The company did not give a reason for Anderson’s departure.

 

“As a company, we are continuously evaluating the best way to staff and organize our operations to maximize customer responsiveness and provide our customers with the products, solutions and services that give them every possible advantage in a challenging global economy,” said  Dave Lawrence. “At the same time, I will be working closely with our managers to drive decision making closer to customers, create greater organizational efficiencies and ensure Milacron is well positioned for long-term success as we transition to new ownership.”

 

By the end of July, Milacron is expected to complete the sale that would allow it to emerge from the Chapter 11 bankruptcy declared in March.
