Peterson Manufacturing, a supplier of vehicle safety lighting technology and related equipment, announced that Cory Adams has been named as vice president of engineering, effective Jan. 1. He was also elected as the newest member of Peterson’s board of directors.
According to a press release, Adams heads Peterson’s 15-member engineering team consisting of electrical, mechanical, and optics specialists. In addition to managing the department, he helps guide the design and development of all PM catalog items as well as custom OEM products.
A native of Kansas and a 2003 graduate of Pittsburg State University, Adams holds a bachelor’s in engineering, with an emphasis on plastics design and manufacturing. Adams joined Peterson in April of 2012, joining the engineering team in Grandview, Kan., dealing primarily with Harley-Davidson motorcycle products. In 2014, Adams was named engineering manager, and rose to director of engineering in 2017, a leadership role he will continue as vice president.
“My experience in actually processing plastic parts and designing the tools that make the parts helped me build a great foundation in understanding the whole dynamic of our company,” Adams said. “We have an excellent engineering team here, we mesh really well. Lots of collaboration and team effort. We’re never hurting for new ideas to bring to the market, and we’re pushing projects out as fast as we can.”
