HI TecMetal Group Welcomes New President

HI TecMetal Group, Inc. (HTG), Cleveland, on Tuesday, Aug. 9, announced it has named Manos Eliades as President, succeeding Cole Coe.

Cole is moving to Florida to be with his family residing there. We all thank Cole for his contributions over the years and wish him the best.

Manos has held senior management roles in American, European and Scandinavian leading companies. His breadth of experience spans industries in heat transfer, brazing, chemistry, and oil & gas.  Manos has relocated to Northeast Ohio. 

Terence Profughi, Chair of HTG’s Board of Directors stated, “After thorough succession planning and a comprehensive search process, the board is pleased to have found the best individual to assume leadership of our organization. Manos has a track record of strong leadership in the many roles that he has filled. This combined with his deep industry knowledge and tenure makes Manos uniquely qualified to lead HTG successfully into the future.”

Terence added, “Manos is a visionary and innovator with an unrelenting drive, who brings unmatched ability in operations and with a broad international experience base, made him the best choice from a deep pool of interested and highly qualified candidates.  He has been a successful executive during his extensive career.  More importantly, Manos is a great fit with each of the four ‘critical leadership competencies’ we evaluated as part of our selection process: strategic agility, business acumen, vision, and mission-driven orientation. We’re delighted that he has accepted the position.”

In a statement from Manos,

“I am honored and humbled to accept the privilege to work with HTG and its growing family of people and customers. Together, we can undoubtedly accomplish anything we set our heart and minds on.  In that renewed spirit, HTG will now embark on a path of revitalization of its rich history and expertise to grow in serving customers in aerospace, food, automotive, marine, and industrial products needing heat treating and brazing”.

As testament to that renewed spirit, HTG recently and quickly acquired Universal Heat Treating (UHT) due to an unfortunate event crippling UHT’s ability to serve. View a previous press release regarding the recent acquisition and partnership of HTG with UHT.
