Preactor opens U.S. subsidiary
Planning and scheduling software company Preactor International has opened its first U.S. subsidiary, Preactor North America. Based in Dallas, Preactor North America will strengthen the existing North American network, including network partner Quinn & Associates.
Andy Willis, COO of the North American operation, has more than 14 years of experience with Preactor. As a Preactor user, he was responsible for implementing Preactor across an international food group before joining the company’s development team. He has led that team for the past four years.
“Interest in Preactor has consistently grown in the user and software vendor community as both have come to see the positive ways that Preactor can complement existing manufacturing IT solutions, especially ERP and MES systems, said Greg Quinn, Preactor network partner and president of Quinn & Associates comments on the significance of Preactor North America.” “The depth of technical product knowledge and on-going involvement with product development that Andy brings will also be valuable in further strengthening our product support across all times zones in the USA, Canada and Mexico.”
“We have built up an excellent network of partners in North America led by Quinn & Associates and our user base is now well over 300,” said Mike Novels, CEO of the Preactor International.

2012 Salary Survey
In a year when manufacturing continued to lead the economic rebound, it makes sense that plant manager bonuses rebounded. Plant Engineering’s annual Salary Survey shows both wages and bonuses rose in 2012 after a retreat the year before.
Average salary across all job titles for plant floor management rose 3.5% to $95,446, and bonus compensation jumped to $15,162, a 4.2% increase from the 2010 level and double the 2011 total, which showed a sharp drop in bonus.
