Newcomb Spring Corporation, one of North America’s largest custom spring, wire form and metal stamping manufacturers, announced Wednesday the appointment of Jason Bingham as general manager of its Ooltewah plant.
"Mr. Bingham began his career at Newcomb Spring in 2000 as a quality technician and has consistently demonstrated excellence in all he does. He was promoted a year later to quality manager, and then to his most recent position as operations manager in 2008.
"During this time, he has gained the respect of Newcomb Spring Tennessee employees, as well as customers, through his technical understanding of metal form design, manufacturability and application considerations," officials said.
Mr. Bingham is a native of Ooltewah and earned his B.S. in engineering from Virginia Tech while working full-time and raising a family. Mr. Bingham is a father of three and grandfather of four, an avid runner and a home chef.
"His appointment follows the retirement of Keith Porter, Sr. from the GM post at the Ooltewah plant after decades of dedicated service," officials said.
