VANCOUVER, WA – TigerStop named Simon Spykerman as Director of Marketing. Spykerman was most recently head of SpykerMedia, creating and executing digital strategies for a broad client base which included Smith-Root, Adventist Health, Clark College and Clark Public Utilities. British-born Spykerman will focus on TigerStop’s marketing and information assets efforts in the digital landscape.
“This is an exciting opportunity to really understand and impact a single business in a very positive way,” said Spykerman. “Being a storyteller at heart, I’m looking forward to sharing TigerStop’s story, and how its products are improving its customers’ manufacturing processes and profitability.”
TigerStop was founded in 1994 by Spencer Dick, who as the owner of a thriving manufacturing business, became frustrated with the inherent inefficiencies of his machine operators stopping to reset and recalibrate whenever they were cutting material to various lengths. He founded TigerStop to automate the cutting process so that exact and accurate parts, whether wood, metal or plastic, would result each time.
“We’re looking forward to taking advantage of Simon’s expertise," says Dick. "As we continue to grow, how and where we electronically communicate with our customers and the world at large, will also continue to grow in importance.”
Headquartered in Vancouver, Washington, TigerStop is a U.S. manufacturer of products for the cabinet, furniture, construction, fenestration, electronics, plastics and metalworking industries. TigerStop has a second manufacturing and distribution facility in Wierden, Netherlands.
