Superior Die Set Welcomes New CEO

President and CEO Frank Janiszewski of Superior Die Set Corporation, Oak Creek, Wisconsin, announced that the company has hired a new CEO, Martin Girga, to lead the organization. The steel and aluminum products manufacturer has operated for the past 96 years under the leadership of three generations of Janiszewskis.

“We are now at a critical point in an increasingly competitive and complex business climate,” Janiszewski said. “To continue to meet our customers’ requirements and harvest this very strong market, my brother Casey and I have made an important decision concerning the future of Superior Die Set. After more than 40 years at Superior, we are turning the top post over to someone with exceptional outside experience to take the company to the next level of operational execution, commercial growth and financial strength.”

Girga will handle all day-to-day business responsibilities while Frank and Casey Janiszewski will remain the majority shareholders of the company and be cochairmen of the Board of Directors.

Girga brings a valuable background of vision, leadership and process improvement with companies such as Danaher, ITT Industrial Process and Orchid Orthopedic. Most recently, he was the Vice President and General Manager of Giddings and Lewis in Fond du Lac, Wisconsin.

About the road ahead and next steps, Girga said, “Superior Die Set is well positioned for continued growth, and with the support of the leadership team we plan to build on the existing foundation, focusing on customer value through operational and commercial efficiencies. My immediate focus will be to meet with customers, suppliers and our team members to better understand our customers’ and organizational needs. I look forward to working with the Board and all of our employees to bring the company to next level.”
