SafeWorks LLC last week named Erik Elzinga to the new role of vice president engineering with global responsibility and emphasis on new product development for its Power Climber Wind, Power Climber and Spider brands.
Based in the company’s Seattle headquarters, Elzinga joins the company from a 15-year career with Terex Aerial Work Platforms, manufacturer of Genie-branded aerial lift equipment, in progressive assignments from project engineer to his last role as global engineering senior director.
“Sales from new products have become a major driver of SafeWorks' growth,” said CEO Scott Farrell. “Adding Erik’s expertise as a dedicated leader leverages his extensive global experience through periods of explosive growth with Terex and strengthens our continued market leadership in powered access solutions for renewable energy, infrastructure and construction end-markets.”
