Menck USA has appointed a senior executive and production team to lead its Menck Windows operation in Chicopee, Mass., scheduled to begin production this fall. Menck Windows is a new joint venture between Menck USA and Menck-Fenster of Hamburg, Germany. The new management team plans to aggressively grow Menck Windows as a manufacturer of quality and energy-efficient windows and doors for the North American residential and commercial building markets.

Todd Bachelder, now CEO of Menck USA, joined Menck Windows in March 2013 to support the launch of the U.S. company. With nearly 20 years in the commercial banking industry, he has held CFO and COO positions with several manufacturing companies, most recently as COO of custom window and door manufacturer Duratherm Window Corp.

Alan Wall, director of sales and marketing, is a former senior associate with Tradewood Industries and has directed sales for Marvin Window and Door retailers. John Benjamin III, director of manufacturing, has more than 20 years of production management experience in the wood products industry. Michael Pusch, director of technology transfer and R&D, has a technical background in wood window and door design and production, as well as window and door hardware. And Nate Campbell, director of project management, has extensive knowledge of windows and doors manufactured in both the United States and Europe for high-end residential and commercial construction, company officials report.

Additional members of the team include Bodo Liesenfeld, chairman and managing partner of Liesenfeld International, a private investment enterprise and founder of Menck USA; and Rolf Menck, board member and managing partner of Menck Fenster GmbH and a long-time member of IFT Rosenheim, an international technical and scientific institute for building componentry.
