Wall and ceiling panel manufacturer NUDO Products, a business unit of Verzatec America, has recently hired new president Steve Adkins and vice president and general manager Andrew Wylie.

Over the past 18 years, Adkins has proven to be a strategic leader of Stabilit America, which is a part of the privately- held Grupo Verzatec family network of businesses. Adkins’ extensive knowledge of the industry, coupled with his ability to establish and execute strategic plans, will provide greater focus in sales, manufacturing and new product development for NUDO.

Wylie joins NUDO with a great deal of experience in operations management, with a background in manufacturing and assembly, warehousing and distribution, industrial engineering, and lean/continuous improvement. He has played a role in Tier 1 automotive, contract manufacturing, e-commerce distribution and most recently in aviation manufacturing.

NUDO was founded in 1954, with headquarters in Springfield, Illinois, and was acquired in 2015 by Grupo Verzatec, an international company with headquarters in Monterrey, Mexico. Grupo Verzatec is one of the largest suppliers of laminated wall and ceiling panels for the commercial construction market, including both interior and exterior architectural panels.
