MANAGEMENT TEAM


Charlie O’Bosky

Charlie O’Bosky, President

I have 30 years of experience in a variety of manufacturing environments.  My passion for operational excellence, and my experience has enabled me to drive profitable, sustained growth in a variety of enterprises, large and small, around the world. I graduated with an engineering degree from California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo.

I live in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho and when not at work you can find me on one of many rivers in the Northwest fly fishing for large trout or steelhead. Although, by rule my fish are always smaller than Dale’s fish.

It all started back in 1994 when I graduated high school and was driving in my 1966 Ford Fairlane. It was now time to decide what to do with my life. Ugh. So I went to a local community college with the plan to be a paralegal. Plan failed. The college insisted that I take a skills assessment and I discovered that I had a “high mechanical aptitude” (I blame my dad). That put me on the path to an Associate’s Degree in Fluid Power. Since people don’t know what that actually is, I decided to get my Bachelor’s Degree in Business just to make sure that I had a degree that people recognized.

I now have worked in manufacturing for 20 years in several production and quality roles. My experience has provided me the opportunity to live in many places, travel and to develop my knowledge, skills and ultimately my career.  Every employer has invested in my skills and also taught me something about myself, and for that I am grateful. My work ethic comes from my parents (mostly my dad’s fault) and my desire to contribute to the team comes from being a parent of 2 sons.

In my free time I enjoy paper crafts mostly because I have a mini CNC to cut paper! My husband and I also enjoy going to the lake, going for motorcycle rides and restoring classic cars (blaming my dad again). With this many summer hobbies I probably should have been a teacher. New Plan?

I needed a little coin to get the college tuition paid awhile back and responded to a memorable help wanted ad: Needed part time mold designer, polisher and janitor, $10 to clean the shop – on Saturday.  That was the start of 40 years of mold making, mold design, tooling project and tool room management all in the same shop in the breathtaking surroundings of Coeur d’Alene, Idaho.

A whole lot of mold projects gave me the opportunity to meet and work with many talented people, allowed for a bit of time to raise a couple of fine daughters, and enjoy some  awesome adventures in the great northwest like hiking,  biking, skiing, and hunting.

I did get that college tuition paid and I hold an Associate Degree in drafting and design and am a Journeyman mold maker.

JuliAnn Issler

JuliAnn Issler, CFO

My goal each day is to leave this world a little better place than I found it.  People count on me to do the right thing, whether I am mentoring others within the accounting department, supporting the operations team or reporting to management and ownership.  Working my way up through public and private accounting positions, was the right path for me.  If I had to do it over again, I would do it over again.  Exactly the same way.

I graduated from the University of Idaho with a Bachelor of Science in Business and am a Certified Public Accountant.

In my spare time, I enjoy traveling with (or without) my two sons and husband, and drinking margaritas.  Reading a book on a beach or by the pool, it doesn’t matter, as long as it is warm.  Life is a journey, we should make the most out of it.

Dan Pierce, VP Sales

Since I joined the company in 2003, we’ve launched well over 1,000 custom products.  A few were simple; the overwhelming majority were complicated designs in demanding applications. Notwithstanding the design changes after launch, we still meet tight schedules. I’ve been in resin sales, engineering and project management for a total of over 30 years’ experience.  I’ve earned an MBA from the University of Iowa and a B.S. in Chemical Engineering from the University of Washington.

This bio sounds like I am all business, but outside of work, I love living in the beautiful Pacific NW and taking in the sites hiking and cycling.
