| Press Release
Continuing Focus on Strategic Growth and Innovation
GRAFTON, WI – Kapco Metal Stamping today announced that Hani Malek has been appointed the company’s first Chief Operating Officer after a successful nine-year tenure as Vice President of Corporate Development.
During his time with Kapco, Malek has been instrumental in driving Kapco’s growth through strategic planning, new business development, and culture-building. In his new role, he will continue to help lead the organization forward as it continues to invest in innovative manufacturing technology, including an Industry 4.0 roadmap that will position Kapco as a manufacturing leader in the Midwest.
Over the last decade, Kapco has experienced dramatic growth, expanding its manufacturing footprint throughout Wisconsin with six facilities in Grafton, Osceola, Port Washington, and most recently, a state-of-the-art facility in Germantown. With more than 600,000-square-feet of manufacturing space across all locations, Kapco is one of the largest contract manufacturers in the nation. Additionally, the organization has grown to nearly 600 employees while impacting the lives of thousands more through outreach efforts, philanthropy, and special events.
“Being part of a team that is so committed to stability and growth – in a variety of ways – is one of the most rewarding experiences of my entire career,” Malek said. “Whether that is through new business, new equipment, and innovation, or helping our people and team grow both personally and professionally, helping to continue leading those efforts as COO is a major point of pride for me and a responsibility I cherish.”
“Hani’s work ethic, ability to connect with people and his incredible attention to detail have been a critical component to the growth of Kapco,” said Jim Kacmarcik, chairman and CEO of Kapco. “Hani is a living, breathing reflection of our core values, and I couldn’t ask for a better person to help drive the innovation and change that we have planned as we continue to grow.”
Malek, who graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, lives with his family in Cedarburg.
