OPW, a Dover Company and a global leader in fluid-handling solutions, has announced that effective immediately it has formed a new business unit called OPW Electronic Systems. The new business unit is comprised of OPW Fuel Management Systems and PDQ Manufacturing, Inc. This move is part of a broader Dover initiative to enhance customer value across its portfolio by leveraging synergies between its many operating companies.
Phil Carlin will lead OPW Electronic Systems as Vice President and General Manager and assume responsibility for the PDQ business. In addition, Gerry Hanrahan has been appointed as Director of Sales over the combined group known as OPW Electronic Systems.
“Gerry is uniquely qualified to lead the Electronic Systems sales team,” stated Phil Carlin, VP/GM OPW Electronic Systems. “He was extremely effective in leading the OPW-FMS sales & marketing effort for many years prior to joining PDQ. He has done an extraordinary job leading PDQ’s sales efforts and, he knows the distributors and customers for both businesses better than anyone else in the industry.”
Hanrahan joined OPW’s Fueling Component’s Canadian unit in 1999 before relocating to Hodgkins, Ill., in 2002 where he led the company’s OPW Fuel Management Systems’ sale and marketing teams. In 2010 he joined PDQ as VP of Sales.
