Manufacturer appoints president
A holding company has named the president for a manufacturing subsidiary in the area.
Minneapolis-based Apogee Enterprises, parent of Walker-based Tubelite, appointed Steve Green to the role at Tubelite, effective April 1, according to Apogee.
Green will report to Joe Puishys, the CEO of Apogee Enterprises.
“Steve is a key driver and leader of promoting and living the ‘dependable’ brand with our employees and customers,” Puishys said. “This strategy has been a wonderful roadmap to success year after year.”
As Tubelite’s president, Green oversees the company’s operations and its facilities in Walker and Reed City, as well as Dallas and Warwick, Rhode Island.
Green attended Southern Illinois University, then joined the U.S. Air Force.
He started his career in the fenestration industry, working for a glass company in Erie, Pennsylvania, while attending Penn State University in the evenings.
He worked for several large contract glazing companies in the Southeast, before becoming a sales representative for Tubelite in 1990.
Green was promoted to regional general manager in 1992.
In the following years, he became the VP of sales and was co-owner of the company before Apogee acquired Tubelite in 2007.
In 2018, Green was named general manager.
Founded in 1945, Tubelite manufactures architectural aluminum storefront, entrance and curtainwall systems in the U.S.
Tubelite’s corporate office, fabrication, warehouse and shipping operations are in Walker. Its facility in Reed City houses the company’s aluminum extrusion operation.
The company’s Dallas location provides additional fabrication, warehouse and shipping support. The company also has an office in Warwick, Rhode Island.
