Crafco VP Operations Bob Stabler

Crafco has hired veteran manufacturing executive Bob Stabler to fill a vital role on its Senior Leadership Team. In the new role of Vice President of Operations for Equipment, Supply Centers and Coatings, Stabler will oversee the company’s supply chain, identifying value-enhancing synergies and efficiencies. Stabler will also lead initiatives that enhance Crafco’s manufacturing advantages and global presence.

Prior to joining Crafco, Stabler was a General Manager at Kaiser Aluminum, a $1.8 billion producer of specialty aluminum products for the transportation and industrial markets. While there, he was part of a key team that managed plant start-ups and turnarounds, driving both revenue increases and cost reductions. His work also supported operational gains in safety and customer satisfaction.

“Bob’s proven track record across people, product, and operations will be key in implementing our Strategic Growth Plan companywide,” said Don Brooks, President of Crafco. “His perspective and business acumen will be assets to both our team and our customers alike.”

“People partner with Crafco because of its leadership in asphalt crack sealing, patching, sealer, and waterproofing material and equipment,” said Stabler. “Our value-add truly makes a difference in maximizing their pavement preservation efforts. I’m excited for this opportunity, and look forward to continuing this important work.”
