AWRF Caldwell's Furchen to Board

Associated Wire Rope Fabricators (AWRF) has named The Caldwell Group Inc.’s Director of Business Development Jeff Ferchen to the board of directors.It represents a return to the AWRF board for Ferchen, who previously served from 2015 to 2017.

AWRF serves the lifting, rigging, and load securement industry by advancing interests common among its member companies. The association helps create and share technical information, promotes safety standards, and helps develop product identification procedures. Ferchen will serve on the New Member Committee.

Ferchen, who joined Rockford, Illinois-based Caldwell, last year, said: “I am proud to represent both Caldwell and the wire rope, rigging, and lifting industries in this new, yet familiar, role. The good work performed of our board and the active participation of our membership make the industry stronger.”

He continued: “AWRF is where all the industry experts work to get technical information and help drive overhead lifting standards.”

Ferchen delivers a wealth of experience to the board, having spent more than two decades in the rigging industry at several large manufacturing companies and channel partners positioned closer to the point of use. Ferchen is a regular at AWRF’s 18-monthly Product Information Exhibition (PIE) and has worked with various committees during his career.

Ferchen and other new board members attended AWRF’s Fall Meeting in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, in October, and will next meet in Scottsdale, Arizona, in January 2023 for their first official board meeting.
